Easter dawn

Dawn over Jordan...4.5" by 6" watercolor
Hope
in the face of eternity. 
Spring.
Dawn.
Budding trees.
Sprouting bulbs.
Singing birds.
Life-giving showers.
Memories
and years
flowing like the Jordan
through dry country.
Easter.

  1. Terry, the above is perfect for resurrection morning, but what I wanted to comment on was your Oklahoma Country Barn above Jeanetta's poem in the Oklahoma Today. It's a unique structure but so reminiscent of all the old barns I kept an eye on as a girl wondering how much longer they could stand. Fond wishes, Louise Farmer Smith

  3. Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that attract others, but I'm most definitely interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know.
