Hi everyone,

And thank you Ben for the weekend Poetry Potluck (mini) assignment. Although I’ve read many poems that I wish I had written – My Country by Dorothea Mackellar and How Do I Love Thee? (Sonnet 43) by Elizabeth Barrett Browning – the one I want to share with everyone resonated with me this morning.

Trust to Dust by Dancing Echos in response to our assignment on Day Three. I didn’t find these beautiful words myself and I’m rather sad for that. They were miraculously, wonderfully, nudged in my direction (quite by accident) by the author who was compelled to leave me a message about my blog, my writing and a connection she felt.

Thank you @cjdraper1961, your words have been dancing across my heart and echoing in my ears all day.

Happy Blogging
