That first glimpse of purple in the gloaming
As dawn softly rises in morning skies 
Ascending along with nature's colors
Is a look of faith and hope in thine eyes.

Wrapped in the rays of sun's glorious hues;
There dwells a calm that instills peace and love
With a passion that enters every cell
In divine grace that shines light from above.

Meditate to serene silent music 
As the melody of birds sing along.
Elated at the birth of the morning
They share delight in their sweet varied song.

 Open your heart to passions of others...
 Feel with the empathy God has bestowed.
 Then you will know the true meaning of life 
 In the receiving back of blessings sowed.

A beautiful pen Connie. It settles softly on the soul :) empathy I do believe is the key to true happiness in this life, the lack there of undoubtably the cause of so much strife. Wonderful, thank you for leading me here. xomo!

That is so true. People concentrate on the negative things in their lives instead of giving thanks for the wonderful things that are offered free. Thank you Eve. : )

I took a picture almost just like this in Montauk New York. It was such a beautiful purple and orange sky. And yours is beautiful and your work is absolutely calming and speaking to my soul. This is my kind of life. Appreciating the beauty of Mother Nature provided for us. This is going to my fave list :) hugs :)
