All of the sudden i'm hearing George Burns;
he loves his Gracie too.

"Say Goodnight Gracie"

Nite

Chi 03-21-2009 03:51 PM

Grace comes to me

in the afternoon

on a warm breeze,

caressing me -

leaving me...

but not before filling my room

with the hint of spring blossoms

about to bloom;

with the hint of tall grasses

turning soon... to green.

Grace certainly can be seen
In the greening up of the trees
As they do it so Gracefully
Overnight, it seems.

And then there, instantly,
Are the birds chirping
To bring it all into awakened being
Suddenly, it seems, there is newness.

Love, Deb

Oh to face with Grace
all that life and love imparts -

for such sweet taste has Grace
with her perfumed scents - ablilties,

and such sweet place has Grace
within my swollen heart.

Sorry Chi
 
Dear Chi,

I don't think I would do very well with Grace. I have been ageing very nicely with Bj for 59 years the 6 th of May 09.
Believe me this has been the most fantastic journey any man could ever ask for.Love and Pure sweet Joy from my whole family, They are wonderful and the best in the world for me. Just wanted you and the world to know just how blessed and lucky I am. Chi I intended fo this to be a joke, Just didn't work out that way.
Love you
White Feather

Well ya know how i like to play with words, Whitefeather.
enhancing their meanings and giving them a little kick; alittle nuance. Ha!
But i gotta say to you dear man, that grace has to be swirling
all around you and Bj (probably since the first day you met).
Because to have all that love growing between the two of you for all this
time (59 years, now... Wow!) Just ain't no way my friend, that grace
has not been about. She just ain't your lover, that's all! Ha! Huge Grin...
Love, Chi
PS. i keep looking at this word, Whitefeather... What a wonderful word!

It seems there are all sorts of ways that Grace abounds!

Love, Chi

There is a rhythm; a rhyme

anointed with grace

that transcends time and space.

It's a lovely place to be

lost in reverie -

and it's a lovely place to share

when two or more are there.

What is grace
but a sun shower
lighting on my garden -
and a rainbow
stretching 'cross my sky.

For Chi
 
Thank you dear one for the merry heart your poetry here gives to us all.
Just read the entire thread with great delight. You are a very talented poet Chi and more than full of grace.

My heart is full.

Love,
Wolfdog
