A Million Sunrises

There is nothing quite as soft ~
Like a small butterfly’s
Good morning kiss
Day breaks into song
I sit wrapped in
The arms of mighty oaks
Underneath translucent lime green leaves
Backlit by an eastern sky ~
Incredible thankfulness passes over me
Now I can breathe again!

About the Author

I am a beginning author, writer and poet exploring the worlds of poetry, nature and photography. I love to capture ordinary moments and reflect upon our natural world and its intersection with our daily life. In 2006, I co-founded the Shadowleaves Company and started my blog, Shadowleaves. In 2015, I started a local writer’s group in Bella Vista, AR, Village Lake Writers & Poets, sponsored by The Artist Retreat Center and Bella Vista Public Library. Our mission is to share the joy of writing and the importance of writing and telling stories for all ages by connecting with each other.
