    1. Thank you once again, dear Cynthia. I should return from my blog break, and hang out more in blogger land again 🙂 It is so good to hear from you again, hope all is well in your little corner of the world 🙂

  1. Francina,

    Even leafless and shaken, the tree and we know there will be a Spring.

    This multifaceted poem awakens all the senses. I felt the loss, and I feel the light of faith.



  2. “accepting its branches were shaken” – I LOVE this phrase! That’s exactly it! The way the tree is so accepting. Im so pleased my post brought your lovely poem onto the pages of your blog Francina!

    I have now read your book all the way through! Its just gorgeous to read, to feel, and simply to be with! I will read it over and over again, like I have read your other one.

    Lots of love and hugs

    1. Thank you , you are like that tree, my dear Christine! Brave and strong.
      I also thank you for your kind and generous words about my book, You make me blush, your screen must be pink now 🙂
      Lots of love and hugs across the puddle ,

  3. Thank you very much for this lovely poem which is full of hope ! Merci beaucoup aussi de m’avoir fait connaître Christine qui a un grand courage dans sa maladie. Vous avez longtemps été absente sur votre blog et j’espère que vous n’avez pas été malade aussi ; j’ai cru comprendre qu’il s’était passé quelque chose mais je n’ai pas réussi à bien comprendre les allusions et je suis dans l’incertitude

    1. Merci beaucoup, Kristel, j’ai une nervure meurtri pourquoi j’ai arrêté de bloguer pendant un certain temps. Mais c’est mieux maintenant 🙂 J’espère aussi que tout va bien avec vous. Groetjes, Francina xx

  4. So often I read something from another blog that prompts me to write something. It may only be a small word or phrase or maybe an item in a picture. When I think I have reached the end of the line of blogging, something pops up. 🙂
