    Thank you for your comment. I know only too well how quickly life changes since I lost my son 7 months ago. (Report)Reply

    I leave a comment, not an opportunity to post my own poetry, your poem is lovely and catches the ever renewing beauty of nature and in this case...the orange day lilies of which I have in my yard...nice work (Report)Reply

    Thanks for your comment. Life changes in a moment. I lost my son 7 months ago but this poem is about hope and life going on and God's ultimate plan for our lives.
