Something Beautiful

A shaft of light;

the flash

of belief..

 

forgiving insight;

a falling

leaf..

 

benevolent toil;

the butterfly’s

wing..

 

a merciful smile;

all fragile

things.

Overflowing

Someday

soon

 

all

hearts

will beat

in time..

 

our energy 

combined

will overflow..

 

overthrow

 

all

that carves 

our human

sorrows..

 

reclaim

our children’s

lost tomorrows.

Life’s Terrain

A child

in life’s terrain;

I stumble

and fall..

 

blaming

no one..

 

darkness

cannot

bind me..

 

light

will

always

find

me.

Deeper

Deep

within

my being..

 

deeper

than any sorrow

or blind

non-seeing..

 

I find..

 

the resilience

of love..

 

the innocence

of love.
