Pausing for Poetry


Softly sensing something new
Often as we still our soul
Under each of us is shown
Never are we just alone
Drama brings in such a chance
Soothes the need to sneek a glance
Of life in all its twists and turns
From lights of our past bridges burned
Uniquely fitted for the scene
Noble virtue is the cause
Inner knowing catches hold
Valiant efforts soon unfold
Even as we gather age
Reasons we acquire in time
Seek to balance all the deeds
As we plant another seed
Listen to the love of Earth
Lamenting to us everyday
Igniting sparks of love and grace
Gifting to the Human Race
Heaven is right where you stand
Telling you, it's what you planned...........
