I am dedicating this post in honor to Sandra Dias, from the blog, The Veranda House, a sweet, caring dear soul, a friend and a kindred spirit who I just find out passed away on February 23, 2014 after a long and difficult battle against cancer.
My heart is sad, and even though I never met Sandra face to face, I felt a special bonding that words cannot express. This is to her:
LET'S GET TOGETHER
I live here.
This is my home...
We shall meet for tea under the Magical Tree.
Kindred spirits are always together in spirit,
Let’s get together and feel all right.
But I am here;
you are there:
Five thousand rivers,
One universe apart.
Feeling that in some way we could never explain we’ve met in our dreams.
On our opposite sides of the In-between.
Perhaps if we walked too far and
Wondered loud enough we could somehow get together for tea?
I could look up and find the great Saguaro where you keep your dreams
You could look down and find the sacred hollow where I hide my soul.
But we shall hurry
No time to waste!
At the stroke of midnight
Upon our steps to the Enchanted Forest...
Luminous white and shimmering wings will take us there
Swirling whirling under the moon.
Upon petals so late at night to guide our way by magical lights.
Tip toeing out in forest deep, guiding us while half asleep.
Flitting up and down our dreams,
Reaching out to take our hands…
