Tender Grace



Tender Grace


softly braids

her long blonde curls

into a french twist

twined with wild violets

for butterflies and hummingbirds

to swirl and follow


every morning she feeds

songbirds from her hand

smiles at all her garden flowers

and while nodding gently to their fairies

she sprinkles star seed

for spiders to weave into their webs


Tender Grace is  forever grateful

to greet the day the same way

a spring bulb opens to sunlight

so very delicate the petals

yet so strong and resilient

the roots and green shoots


To be with her fills your heart

with gentle kindness

and a knowing that deep within

her seaglass blue eyes she sees

each and every living thing

as a reflection of her own very tender grace


“Forever grateful”  to Robin Elizabeth Anasazi  (1952-2012) whose soul and life was in essence that of ~ Tender Grace

  1. Ah, this is so lovely. I love how “she feeds songbirds from her hand, smiles at all her garden flowers and while nodding gently to their fairies she sprinkles star seed for spiders to weave into their websl.” True grace.
