because the blooming fields….

Because I want to pour you out a river of breeze,
to gather you a bouquet of sweet,  soft lay-me-down moments
and hold this sense of relish like a seashell to your ear
so you can hear the whispers in your wounds
because I think maybe that it’s the sound
that healing makes,


because I feel it so strong inside that you are the priceless art,
more beautiful by design than sea or sunset or gossamer wings,
that there is precious little balm to waste in the hard flee of time
and I choose to share the salve I find
because I know that living can stone you sudden till your heart rattles pieces
and the quiet can be hard to come by


and when you find a well that keeps on giving
your heart stretches out wide and thumps love so stretchy
it reaches and offers and speaks
and you wanna share the shimmer from the waves you’re riding,
the blooming in your field of dreams.

This is mine:  please help yourself to as much as you like,
with love:)


My Ripplesongs July is available now in my little etsy shop
I offer it up with love:)

(and will draw a name Friday from the comments on this post
to give one away!)

“But to be what I am,
to live what I was meant to live,
to want to sound like no one else,
to yield to the blossoms dictated to my heart,
this is what I want
and this  surely cannot be arrogance.”


  1. Oh, the whispers of the wounds hold much to share. If we just listen, we find deep healing, there. Jennifer, your words hold deep meaning and inspiration. XO

  2. What a lovely song…balm for the heart to make it sing…much gratitude for this “well that keeps on giving” my friend!

  3. How I love your beautiful, creative, overflowing, generous heart.

  4. You are such a sharing soul and always giving from that infinite well of love deep inside you through your poetic words and your art. They sooth and comfort and make me float on a dreamy cloud of delicate petals. Your flowers are beautiful.

    I wish you a splendid weekend my friend.

  5. I ADORE my Ripplesongs June, thank you SO MUCH for sending it to me!

    I apologize for not thanking you sooner, but we have been preoccupied with the sad loss of a young man who worked for my husband, and the job of consoling his co-workers and family. Time passes so quickly.

    I have the pleasure now of curling up and revisitng your words and art more slowly now, which makes me quite happy. And I am going to treat myself to July, as well. Keep up your beautiful work, dear friend.

    xo, Anita

  7. Your writing is so soothing and uplifting and full of love. Thank you!

  8. Your words are healing to my heart. I just lost my little sister, singing softly to her at her bedside as she died. Did you know that hearing is the last sense to go? Whispering in the wounds is real. It is about as real as it gets. I’m thinking of a mantra: I am remembering who I am, I am remembering who I am….may we all remember.
