Ever tread so lightly
In the landscape of my soul
So that I may walk among flowers
And smell their thoughts
Ever tread so lightly
That I may hear a secret
That is whispered in the wind
That the melody of my desires
Come back to me again
Ever tread so lightly
That all is not lost
That everything plays a role
In the story that unfolds
Ever tread so lightly
That I remember who I am
That I remember who you are
That I remember the connection
To the symphony of colors
That which created the story
In the first place
Ever tread so lightly
Move without sound
Hear with my heart
See with my soul
And know no bounds
As you read these words may you have a memory of the Divine Spirit that you are. In light of the turmoil that erupts in our midst, may the light of our love and our peace radiate to the injured parts of our world, and let there be healing.

Wonderful Lorrie. <3 I'm working through my usual challenges with a few moments of grace. 🙂
Grace is good…I like Grace!! You know Brad…the older I get the more I think our learning is accelerated by the struggles we face…and the more we need to b learn the more challenges (and I mean that from my own perspective.) Much love to you my friend ♡
I agree Lorrie. And I have much room to go in embracing my challenges to allow more grace and learning.

Really lovely, dear Lorrie, and I was reminded of W.B. Yeats – you know the piece of his I mean? H <3
Hi Hariod! Thank you 🙂 I was not aware…but Googled ‘Yeats tread ever so lightly’ (and have to admit I was a little afraid 😉 ) and ‘The Clothes of Heaven’ came up. Is this the poem you speak of?
Just finished watching Wimbledon women’s single final 🙂 It has been a crazy fortnight!
Hope all is well with you, dear friend ♡♡
Short and beautiful . . . well, aren’t we all? 😉
Wow…yes! I feel beyond honored!!! ♡
(And how do you know I am short? 😉 Hehe)
Healing hydrangeas and words that soothe and take us beyond the suffering of the world. Thank you Lorrie 💛
Thanks, Val! I really love the word ‘soothe’ in this instance. It reminds me of peace…and stillness…the place where we connect to our higher Spirit!! Many blessings to you…I hope you have a beautiful weekend ♡
Nice words and pics!

Thank you dear friend ♡ Have a wonderful weekend!
a beautiful blessing

Thank you!! And I’m so happy 🙂
Lorrie, I have not read your work in a while, and when I read this, I was stunned. I was touched down to my very Soul, for the Truth woven in your words is Eternal. Your growth has been huge, for in order to write words such as these, you must understand. Powerful, Divine, Absolute Truth you have written. Bless you!!! <3 <3 <3
Hi Amy ♡ Thank you dear soul!! I am so grateful for your words here…and yes…I have gone through much that has been a great teacher. I know that our purpose here is to learn and to move back to the Divine. I feel it every day and if I can infuse these feelings into words and photos for others to see and hear…then I am thrilled!!! I’m so happy you left YOUR beautiful energy here, Amy! And I hope that the lessons you have hold close in love ♡♡
It brings such JOY to my Heart to know that others on this beautiful Planet have as their Purpose to remember who they are, and by so doing, sharing here on WP that remembering to assist others to remember as well. Bless you, Lorrie, for being faithful to yourself. Growth is not ever easily obtained so I applaud your efforts, dear One. Shine on!!! <3 <3 <3
So nice to see you Amy! I agree with you…we are so lucky to have found a place here to share this growth with each other. It is not easy to move to Truth…to discard what is false and shed the coat of the ego…but it is so WORTH IT!! I send you lots of love and beautiful energy ♡♡♡
Beautiful and profound, Lorrie. Love how you smell the thoughts of flowers, and hear your desires returned to you on the wind. These are the moments when we know we are in unity with everything I think, and you have captured the grace of it so perfectly here. I suspect your last paragraph was moot for many if not all who read this, for by the time we reach there the memory has already opened into a full bouquet!
Peace and Love
Thanks, Michael 🙂 Yes…when we connect to the energy of creation as one…yes unity. And I love that you used the word “grace.” To me, that expresses this feeling so perfectly. And I am full of Blessitude for the grace that is bestowed on me. Thank you for the beautiful energy you leave here…hope your weekend was wonderful ♡ (and I did get to hit a few balls! 😉 )
Such beautiful thoughts dear Lorrie, and those Hydrangeas are beauties, And yes we must all join together in our prayers and thoughts for healing to the world right now.. xxx
Thank you beautiful soul ♡♡ I know when we join together our wonderful energy is exponentially greater!! Blessings for a beautiful week!

Nice post but you kind of put in all caps “EVER TREAD SO LIGHTLY”
Kind of takes away how I feel from the post. Or its just the font, or something? Still neat though.
I get it…thanks for the input. Have a great day!
