Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Writing 101, Day Twenty: Treasured Gift of Time

on June 27, 2014

There is a time for letting go.
To purge and simplify.
Casting forward once beloved things.
Enriching someone else’s treasure store.

Time to love the sunbeam’s light
Streaming bright as jewels.
Bird-song concert, flowers’ canvas.
Nature’s treasures free of any charge.

Days to be at peace in seat-worn chair passed down.
Soft lighted lamp welcomes the fall of night.
Cup of tea for body’s warmth and cheer.
Comfort now a gift beyond compare.

      Thanks. I liked it especially. It began as a long prose story that I made disappear somehow. I didn’t feel like starting all over and out poured this short bit of poetry.
