Next up we have Jill James! Take it away, Jill----- (p.s. If there is even a tiny thing wrong with this post, it is my fault, not Jill's. This is my first attempt at importing a non blog-type file. Jill's .pdf file was gorgeous, with beautiful poetry-like text alignment. I'm sorry I couldn't duplicate it as well on here.)
Mermaid in the MountainsI am from the ocean---the land is not my home...my true love brought me here & wherever he is, I belong.
Water lullaby of summer, soothing to the soul---I'll find you again somewhere else...your opalescence calls
Sing my Siren Song
Pine trees knitting their needles,
Aspen leaves whisper, whisper
melting away sorrow in the grass
New friends gather round - shimmering inthe summer sun - desert orchids
God's sunset calls - beauty is for the taking & our lives are just a season
I'm Jill James, making my home in Utah...taking in all the grandeur this place has to offer - thank you to the gracious Laura....
Is that a wreath made of peacock feathers behind you, Jill? I want!

That was lovely. Makes me think of my future home on the Oregon coast. The name of the town means "where the mountains meet the sea."
