So here I am.. my ragged edges made smooth; softened by life's jagged touch like a pebble plunged through the rocky flow.. knowing nothing for sure though the water is pure. Poem & Paintings by Mairi
Something Beautiful.. A shaft of light; the flash of belief.. forgiving insight; a falling leaf.. benevolent toil; the butterfly's wing.. a merciful smile; all fragile things.
I’ve been making some more wee Handmade Poem Books 😊. The above Poem is one of 15 poems included…available from my Online Shop. Many thanks to all who visit. Much love..Mairi 💙
Let love grow empowered by its rightful rescue.. imbued with a sense of innocence and knowing.. thrown and scattered. Poem & Painting by Mairi
Beyond the knowable untold mysteries bond and illuminate us.. merge as one.. celebrate the joy of life as it comes. Poem & Paintings by Mairi
When oceans part and stars align we hesitate.. for even though we know our way is clear.. we fear our own becoming.

These beautiful words by T.S. Eliot always speak directly to my soul, and bring me peace when I’m feeling unsure of my path… or falling into despair. 💙
I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing. T.S. Eliot from the Poem East Cocker Paintings by Mairi
