Words of Light

She lives the peaceful life in New Zealand, surrounded by green organic gardens and beautiful trees. Being surrounded by Mother Nature gives her the creative energy to put light into her works of art. Her wish is to warm peoples hearts and ignite in them a stirring of their spirits. Please visit Marie’s Etsy shop, SoftEarthArt and her Blog, Softearth’s World.

Words of Light from Soft Earth’s World.

 The sun shone brightly, it’s golden rays warmed the young child
Quietly she wandered  into the garden
Soft was her tread

The sound of bird song could be heard
She always carried some breadcrumbs in her pocket
She loved listening to their sweet song
It always filled her with joy

She caught a faint whisper on the breeze
 She knew who was whispering
It was the flower children
 She spied them smelling the flowers

Their perfume filled the air
Oh how she loved the garden 
It was her favorite place to play
Remember to take the time to go quietly out into the garden and be still and quiet
You just might hear whispering
Love and light  Marie

  1. neat! I’ve been wanting to play around with felting wool…but I can’t seem to find anywhere that sells it in craft stores. Where could I purchase wool, and can I choose what colors I need or is it easy to dye it myself? I especially want turquoise blue wool.

  2. I love your work Marie! You are such a gifted woman.

    much love,
