When you speak, Wild things rise and shine, All a flutter, And my dreams flourish, Golden in light. ~ Janna Vanderveen
Golden light grows In this secret garden green, With verdant blossoming flowers Dripping lush nectar sweet. Tantalizing magic is its song. ~ Janna Vanderveen
Kindness intoxicates, its aroma smelling of unconditional love while its beauty rivals the most verdant of blossoming flowers. May we choose today to be intentional in our thoughts and actions as we live out lives of kindness.
She ruled, not with an iron fist, But with an iron-clad mind, For her identity found footing in love, And her compassion could not be shaken. ~ Janna Vanderveen
I completed a second painting for a friend, in my series, “Be Thou My Vision.” I envisioned a girl holding a lantern, which cast light to dispel the shadows. Be thou my vision, Thy presence my light. Guide me through sunshine, And the darkest of night. ~ Janna Vanderveen
Be though my vision When I cannot see. Whether waking or sleeping Reveal yourself to me. ~ Janna Vanderveen
Watercolor Painting of Roses in Vase Dabbling with roses With love and with light This paintbrush of prose Births color and life. ~ Janna Vanderveen
