Treasured ~

You are the quietness 
poised on the pool 
before the first breeze wakes 
or ever a bird stirs or morning breaks _

Tethered by trials 

your body comforts 
imparting 
surpassing power to bless _

When my worlds fume 

and strain to fall apart 
I find their wholeness _ and my own 
within your heart _

  1. Oh gosh. This takes me back to the poetry of Mevlana, who wrote to the universe as a beloved companion. I know this is a beautifully personal poem, but it has a universal, even cosmic, appeal. I am improved by it. Thank you.

  2. Oh Margie - it's just so beautiful - and for some reason the word delicate came to me as i read it.

    I must go check out Mevlana who Geo. talked about above.

    I love your poetry.

  3. That's beautiful, Margie! So glad I got out of the cave long enough to see what you've written. It's so very soulful.

    Now, back to hibernating. See you in the Spring.
