The Giver of Stars



"Hold your soul open for my welcoming.
Let the quiet of your spirit bathe me
With its clear and rippled coolness,
That, loose-limbed and weary, I find rest,
Outstretched upon your peace, as on a bed of ivory."

You have a beautiful blog here. Love all the photos. Yes, the one below looks like an alien. I hope it didn't grab you! Those white flowers look like bride's gowns and I LOVE the quote you coupled with this photo!
