Rookie - 12 Points (Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

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.

    Your metaphors, have opened doors of similarities

    we all should stand back for a while and smell the coffee

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