Gazing Inside

Look deep inside
That place only you really know
That somewhere, always home
Never too far away
In reach when you need it
There in a glance

No need to linger
Longer than a moment
You already live there
It’s your place to be who you are
Everyone else, just a guest
At your invitation

See that stargazer lily over there
Its stamen jutting outward
It’s an invitation to you
Step inside, yourself
Smile
Give yourself a hug

  1. Don’t have your new site on my laptop here in Denver, so I’ll say here that those are some really nice pics lately. I like ’em!
    Is that the Gauchy (sp?) Model T over there?
    Thanks!
