Looking, forever wistfully, through a
kolidiscope that ends with the river's
twirlling light, intersecting with nature.

Wanting, in some small way, to know
there is a reason for the wind,
but feeling a stronger pull towards
the nebulus one that awaits, and knows me well.

Knowing that Somewhere in between these places
there are children who need and a self unsure,
I live and hope that meaning will
come with waves of self forgiveness for what I have not yet done....


 Grant that I may not judge my niegbor until I have walked a mile in his moccasians

Native American prayer

timing is everything(smile) i get to read this first!!
I love this poem, it reads so calmly and has a beautiful peaceful feeling about it...
as always, i relate to your words...I know all too well these feelings of regret and the need to be free of guilt put on us by others...or atleast that is what my heart read into this one.
perfect as always.

 and you can say baby...
baby can I hold you tonight
maybe if told you the right words...
at the right time,
you'd be mine...
baby can I hold you tonight...
