Eternity - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

i have lived among nature
feeling close to the earth
grown exotic flowers
fed birds that made nests
in my hanging planters
for birthing their young
come the dawning of spring
watched a tiny jacaranda tree
grow into a thrilling beauty
with a little nurturing
took in homeless dogs
so i could save them from
an early unwarrented demise
and in their eyes i have
seen a glimpse of eternity
for they, as i have
witnessed God's beauty
in all living things
and seen a bit of eternity
