~Little Miracles~


Sitting in a sunbeam on the cool kitchen floor,
watching the sunset thru the open back door.
Soft breezes come in thru the tattered screen,
God's artistry paints the sky in a violet washed scene.
The stereo jams ... my body takes in the deep base,
the sunlight warms and tans my tear streaked face.
Within this fragile moment ... I discover the place, you exist in me.
The gift of this miracle ... for once, I am content to simply ... just be.
If I hold my breath ... can I make time mercifully stand still ...
Should I never move ... can I stop the arrival of until...

Janet Marie


*for my partner in rhyme
thank you for the inspiration, always.

 The stars shine so bright, now's the time
I close my eyes - soft wind touch my face,
Cool sand upon the place where I once kissed you
And held you close.
Now I will reach for the stars...
Because Oh my love, that's where you are...
Though the storms of black night rage on
I still see your face
I still feel your lips on mine
And though my heart feels all alone without you
I still hear you sing to me
I still hear your voice on the sea...
vertical horizon

This was so beautiful and peaceful! It brought a tear to my eye. I think we rush around in life so much that sometimes we lose sight of the "little miracles". Thanks so much for the reminder. As always I stand in awe of you and your wonderul work.

Love ya,
AMY

In this moment
one miracle appears

'can I stop the arrival of until'

Tender moment shared.

Hmmm... I read your peom this morning on another message board and I liked it a lot... but I'm just now making the connection that for the first time in a year or so I'm sitting in the house with all the windows open letting a cool breeze blow through.  Hmm... subconcious mind must have liked it too... anyways.

Cool poem.

but if there's nothing there to make things change,
if it's the same to you I'll just hang."

Flowing on the lighter side and so gracefully...I loved this...I think I felt the breeze as I read....right to my heart.

Beautiful poem, Janet Marie!

Oh, this is so poignant!  I wasn't surprised to find a few tears trailing down my face as I read.  The anticipation is wonderful isn't it?  Treasure these moments always!

 It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
--W.E. Henley
