The Ark of God                          
--------------                          
as sun rests, a veil clears            
though we can see,                      
we do not behold,                      
and ancient knowledge remains          
                                        
the quiet comes, and the sound is there
though it speaks to us                  
we can not hear                        
and yet our hearts hear the old truth  
                                        
darkness comes, and it brings us light  
though it shines our way                
we stumble on the path                  
and yet the signs brightly show the way
                                        
night shines, to give us wisdom        
and we are not alone                    
in the cradle of heaven                
On the Ark of God

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Thanks Hoot_owl, Rosemary, Nan, Helmut and Paul.. I'm glad to be welcomed to this
"Ark of Poets", there is so much talent here I feel humbled every time I read. I am constantly saying as I read why can't I write like that.
