Love's Warmth


Memories dance
in stained glass sunlight
comforting me
with their peace.

The warmth of love
has eased goodbye’s pain.
My heart given rebirth
from a stone of grief
into a song of freedom.

From the book ,Objects of Reflection, by Annie Lockheart.

My objects of reflection:
 Milk glass vase-memories
Peace signs-peace
Butterfly-rebirth
Photographs-love
Window-stained glass
Bird-freedom

I love this, Susie. It is so true, the warmth of love does ease the pain of loss, sometimes sooner, sometimes later, but it does.

There are times at church I get so mesmerized by the stained glass that I stop listening to the priest talking. :)

Margaret..stained glass fascinates me. I have a large stained glass piece in my bathroom window and I never tire of just watching how the light shines through it.
