Being Saved By Words


Somewhere in our lives we went our separate ways, taking
separate journeys alongside of one another.

Never merging on this side of life, staying on pathways
we had each chosen along our roads.

Taking journeys, feeling our way into tunnels of another
horizon, slipping into our own canyons and being fulfilled
to the utmost.

Never leaving, being saved by the importance of being
ourselves.

Allowing nothing to interfere with what we're doing with
life.

Expressing every wish and desire in realms of poetry,
being saved just by the words that are written into every
poem.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
