in memory of wild flowers and green fields,

rushing streams and ocean waves,

sunrise and sunsets, rain clouds and wet clothes,

children playing, ripples in the sand, giant oaks,

leaves in the wind, mountains high and winding

roads, silence in the calm, laughter in the crowd,

darkness of the night, moon beams on the sea, song

of the bird, bark of the dog, open doors , welcomed hands,

smiles , sharing stories, life as it is.
