by Grandma
I'm meant to be near the waters
be it ocean lake or gulf
with the the sun shining above
each wave carries a platinum ribbon
and on each ripple a diamond appears
the sands are white gold 
that cover your toes
what need do I have for gems on my fingers
when I have all that's precious
right here by the water.


A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body. Benjamin Franklin
Home is the nicest word there is. Laura Ingalls Wilder
If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere. Vincent Van Gogh
