    Gumby--I was digging around in the old threads and came across this Gem, because of something personal I am going through, this resonated with me in a deeply personal way. I think I will remove this "Hair shirt" I have been wearing for far too long. It is time to change....Thank you for sharing your beautiful poem with me...Peace always...Julia
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    Juls, it seems that women especially have so many hair shirts packed away. I'm glad you've decided to throw yours out. I hope some day to get rid of all of mine, too.

    Wishing you peace, dear.

    Thanks for your explanation, Julia. Now I understand why folks bring up old threads, 'cause sometimes I just want to say "let it be".

    I like the simplicity of the language in this piece. In this instance, it lends power.

    Thanks for a good read.

    Cheers,

    Nature weeps, the devil sings
    at mans greed and pride
    and what it brings

    Just lots of useless
    little things
