Will the Circle Be Unbroken
I find of late, in quiet times,
With softer step and gentler rhythm,
Miles apart from madding crowd
In introspection I am bidden
To slip the rough protective coat
That useful proved in growing up
But now impedes the tender shoot
That seeks new light on which to sup.
The fingers of Your warming smile
Are gentle on my spirit's husk
As slowly opened to the day
My world of drear eternal dusk
Dissolves to find a richer life
And root descends to depths unknown
To anchor there mid ages past
Where sage's paths are wont to roam.
When duly anchored, growth begins,
At first I feel so meek and thin
But bursting from my earthly tomb
My cotyledon now ascends
To heights that give a different view,
A different world, a different read,
Than what I dreamed of in the earth
When I existed as a seed.
I seem forever in the Light
And in Your smile do fully flower
Leaning down You deign me kiss
As all around my fragrance showers,
On and on this dance sustains
A life I thought would never end
But then one windy day in fall
I find that I begin to bend
And getting lower to the earth
I see where time is going to lead
And so release into the wind
The quintessential gift...a seed.

Habit is habit and not to be flung out of the window by any man, but coaxed downstairs a step at a time.
Got it? It's fun!!!
If you read it and feel it, post it!! :)

Though the burden
may seem too heavy
upon the shoulders of one,
and there might be too much hesitation
with no directions known,
too much division already caused
too much suffering on earth.
There can be only one answer given
even the blind can see.
for though wisdom can be interpreted
as different in many lives,
tt is still passed down
to you and me.
Placed in our hearts
and in our minds
since we first drew breath.
Left in our hands
to carry on
the best way we can.
All over the world
the beauty found
is much too often overlooked
or simply ignored,
for even as the sun
and the cool winds blow...
hope is reborn to the world.
This precious hope
gives the broken hearted,
despaired, lonely creatures,
and human beings,
a reason to wake
and try again.
So each new morning
all human beings
and living creatures
are reborn to the world.
It is a new day,
and a new beginning...
Let's live it.

Glad to see you posting here and thanks for your comment.
I enjoyed reading your "Rambling Thoughts" and your poem on this
thread. You're right, each day can be a "new beginning", I guess
we need to be sure that we treat it that way.

I wish I had you guys' gift for poetry!
Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.

Thanks! Would you mind if I put your above quote in the Proverbs and Catchy Sayings thread?
