Life Will Shine - Poem by Alison Smith

A spark of life
A cell divides

Within that cell a life begins
As days pass by
The life force grows

In some forms weeks
In others months

A new life emerges
To breathe the air
And enrich the world
By being there.

And one day later in time
Another spark of life will shine.

    Alison, I just fell in love with this piece as soon as I began to read it. One of those poems that says so much in a few words. An outstanding beautiful piece of writing from one of my favourite people at PH. Thank you for sharing it my friend.
