Eight Days Gone

Eight days gone

Life full surprises

Strong stand tall

By Karen Smith




Single flowers

Like clusters of tiny stars

Joined by stems of green

To slender long leaves

Rooted to the earth together

Fed daily


By Karen Smith

I have always wondered why Jesus was called the lily of the valley and yesterday it accused to me that he is called that because he gathers us to him to be joined in beauty with him. So I created this poem for all of us, no one left out and all special as we are.

Don’t let go of yourselves. Be assured that being yourself is the best gift you can give.
