new life between these walls
waves roll by

Quadrille: Forever Young

blue whippet in black coat in the forest

joy
distilled
among the trees
where we race
in the spirit
of fun

raise our smiles
to the morning sun
offering
the angel’s share
to the heavens

getting the balance
right
in casks of light
where love deepens
with age

souls stay
young
forever

this earth so loving
washes our seaweed shore
in rock pools
waves sculpt tumbling stone –
a gift that keeps on giving
