Royal carpet spreads
and brittle leather
sun kissed in the morning chill.
Shadows dance on
nest for weary
and wrinkled spirit.
No minor beauty
creeps along brick wall
to swallow weeds
and wrap thirsty soil
in trailing vines
lush with lavender blue promise.
Dedicated to Carol Garvin
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. ~I Peter 4:8 (NIV)
Periwinkle blue is God’s favorite color. I asked one time. He showed me.
Carol J. Garvin says
Oh, Sandra! I was reading through this, smiling at the connection to our Facebook conversation yesterday, loving the photos and the words… then got to the end and burst into tears. You’ve blessed my soul with your Godly love.
😀 And now I’ll always think of you when I look out the front window because that carpet rolls right past it.
