Just a tiny scrap of night sky
Set with
A single star,
Wrapped
In shining evensong
And tied
With a ribbon
Of moonlight,
Kept with me
To remind me
Always
That no darkness
Is total.

Just a quiet soft green valley
Washed with
A gentle rain,
Safe
From sadness and regret
And touched
With a feeling
Of deep peace,
Kept with me
To remind me
Always
That no despair
Is final.

Just a small pressed flower
Saved from
A Wedding bouquet,
Kissed
With memories of the heart
And faded
With the feelings
Of long ago,
Kept with me
To remind me
that
Always
Is but a moment in time…

I know that there is a word or rather that there are words to describe what this piece made me feel but at this moment I cannot recall them except to repeat the word that Peggy/Maggie used--- "Beautiful!"
