Sweet Sanctuary

Come asylum's breath,
gossamer wings touch mine brow ~
Grant me refuge please;
then may my soul find comfort.
In your peace, my heart shall rest...

    Hi Adell my friend, lovely "Sentanka" and I enjoyed the read much today afternoon. Today the 3rd of October are some parties going because it is the 20th anniversary of German unification. But here it is quiet as people here in the East won't have to celebrate much. Thank you for your kind comments and have a wonderful week!..All the best and take care!...Gert:)
