Mist On River

Soft mist rises
Caressing the water
Brushing the scene lightly
Enveloping it in warmth

Sweet flowers of white
Cascade over the bank
Looking brightly upwards
Wafting soft fragrance

The mist moves gently
Across the water
Like tender words
Whispered in the ear

The flowers look at you
With bold, beautiful faces
Like shining affirmations
From piercing, wise eyes

Mist covering water now
Surrounding her soul
Breathing peace into her
Healing her depths
