Indispensable Awe.


Crucial to living is finding the taste
Of amazement at being alive.

.......................Thirst
For essentials like wonder, for which
....................fate
Has endowed life. Drink with delight
.........................but first
Stop at love's edge and see
...............complexity
All interwoven with season and tide.

Feel the imperative joy, which pressing
Juice into fruit, rain into cloud,
...................resides
With such happiness found
........................borne on first light
Of new dawn. Sway to rhythm
....................in motion
As time sweeps winter clean
..................to start again
Birthing underground.

................Listen to grass grow
And when found, let delight in sound
...........................remain.

Life in its abundance turns vital keys
To unlock awesome.....indispensability.

    we all should stand back for a while and smell the coffee
    brilliant Fay, what a wonderful mind you have. (Report) Reply

    Excellent work. However, remember that workshop we did some time ago?
    We may need a refresher soon.

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
