Mountains tower high

To meet the heavens above

Oh, to be a bird

Everywhere is lush

Bouquets of roses burst

Fragrant fuchsia blooms

Rain on the tin roof

Wind blows in waves, thunder claps

Pounding percussion

After the torrent

Peace comes, followed by voices

Of joyful children

My long journey here

Is only the beginning

Of a life renewed

    AND WOW what a new chapter is unfolding. This is beautiful. Your recent facebook post about traveling to Greece and coming home to your new home to homemade real italian food was, well, mouthwatering! Soak it in and wring it out, Gidget!!
