Ode To Life . . .

Post by BC Williams on Sat 29 Jan 2011, 2:50 pm

.......................


...............................In my lifetime,
...............................I've seen spring break bright green
...............................and hues of summer
...............................give sway to tawny, golden autumn.
...............................I've smelled musty forest floors
...............................neath sunny brushed canopies.

......................................I've seen tall mountains
......................................with colorfully veneered valleys,
......................................and considered their great beauty
......................................as an artist does his canvas.

................................I've imagined the racing beat
................................of a tremblingly excited stag;
................................nostrils flared,
................................acutely aware of minute details.

......................................I've felt intensity
......................................looking at serene field flowers
......................................rolling like kaleidoscopic waves,
......................................a soft blush of color dancing as wind.

...............................And I know
...............................I've had everything I need!

...............................What more could there possibly be
...............................than to be loved,
...............................to give love-
...............................and to have lived in His splendor?
