Wisdom Filled

by
Michelle Dennis Evans

Shimmering in the winter sun




Silver haired



Wise and frail



Able to move fingers still



Sewing precious treasures



Cross stitch, running stitch



Sweet embroidered beauties



Ready to mark the pages



Of books still yet to read



Faces familiar



Friendly family



The joyful life



Know soon



The end is near



A memory



Left for all



Enchanted



Endearing

Michelle,
You've painted a beautiful portrait for us of this wise woman. I visit elderly people weekly through my church and am sometimes saddened that more people don't realize what a treasure older people really are. Thanks for sharing!

Oh - it's beautiful. Truly.

I'm so glad I've 'found' you.
