Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

Creation

Posted Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Have you ever cried
Stood in awe
At the sight of creation?

A tree
The sunrise
The mountains
The ocean
The aurora borealis

Have you ever cried
Stood in awe
At the sight of creation?

A child
Her first steps
His first words
Her ballet recital
His high school graduation

Have you ever cried
Stood in awe
At the sight of creation?

A work of art
The Duomo in Florence
Michelangelo's Pieta
Picasso's Guernica

Have you ever cried
Stood in awe
At the sight of creation?

Your life
Your creation
Your gift
To the world
