    the waves roared...breaking
    clouds trying to hide the sun
    the sky beyond blue...

    so far...near mountains
    butterflies beyond beauty
    the air warmly soothes

    we...smiling in awe
    ow..ur eyes are watching god..
    YOU SAID IT ..ZORA!!

    She saw such beauty
    amid horrors of life, such
    saves our sanity

    Look at the clearing
    the deer have gathered to drink
    in the clear blue stream

    As we're watching God
    We feel safe, loved, and at peace
    Zora said it well
