twelvebird


simple bird . simple word a day early

this week I believe in a bit of black white and red

on an everyday table :: in a spring garden unexpected :: as paper is folded


I believe in sharing always . the simple stone and simple bird above will be given away

leave a comment to enter and I will draw one name for each next week

Only after the second reading did I realise these were a gift to us! Beautiful words and a lovely sentiment for an island needing so much love at the moment.

Your love poured out
in birds and stones
stirs fresh prayers
like strong winds
in my heart
...Lord, rebuild their foundations
and give them wings.
Strength and lift
to the Japanese people
(I do so find myself falling
in love with them)
Thanks for this beauty,
Jen
