Finding Strength Born In Pain - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

'the beauty of soul wrenching pain
is the way it forces you to find strength... '
Gregory Uhan

'there are many ways to be strong
to stand tall with the solid strength...
of a forest giant an oak tree

to be flexible and bend to the wind gale like a reed
or to flow with alternating rhythms of water
like a high mountain stream or river...

all of nature is within us to choose from to seed us
with multiple layers of seasoned growth
our unfolding flowering diversity...

so much depends upon perspective layers of depth
light darkness as we journey into the story
of our chosen spun web destinys... '
Terence George Craddock
