My Soul Hoarded

Painting by Joseph Karl Stieler 

I can no longer hear
the birdsong of morning
or love’s endearment,
but music fills the silence.

What life robbed my soul hoarded.

I live not with loss….
I live in the joy of what remains.

At Real Toads Hannah had us visiting Bonn, Germany which is the birthplace of Ludwig von Beethoven. Transforming Friday With Nature's Wonders


"I live not with loss...I live in the joy of what remains." So very beautiful Susie.
