"People from a planet without flowers
would think we must be mad with joy the whole time
to have such things about us."

Sanctuary

Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing
There is a field...
I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
The world is too full to talk about. —Rumi

Sooooooooo beautiful . . .

I have caught up with your posts (how do I get so behind?) but keep returning to this one. It speaks to me so deeply. I have such a soft spot for meadows green and shady laced with invitation to linger with a friend. Simply beautiful . . .

I believe I shall name this my favorite post over all the good ground I have covered. : D
