-*- Nurtured In Peace - Poem by Debora Short

The meadow nourished in softest
Sedges scattered amid violet milk weeds

Incredible flowered attractions
Hosting dainty butterflies, moths and bees

Each patrol finding warm sunny skie-s
Perfumed bliss softly summoning in

These many tiny witnesses for life
And too, sentinels diligently shield

Safe-guarding a precious new beginning
The fawn a tawny velvet-coated gift

Sheltered by loving aunts, sisters and
Mum over near the cedars, sedge and sun

She watches me in curiosity
Now a gawky yet cute adolescent

Quietly nibbling crab-apples not far from
My sacred space on this prayer-filled morn

(Sacred Space, Tennessee
