In My Garden

by Andrea Shushan Burdick 10-27-21

In reverie.

Photosynthesis as manna,
Prisms offering the rainbow of...

Let Your Words be Kind

Let your words be kind

Your foot-steps light

Your breath deep

Your thoughts gentle

Your heart bubbles with joy

A light resides in your eyes

A soft-graceful gait carries you

And you resonate with truth.
