Sights And Sounds - Poem by AHO Speaks

Sights and Sounds

The creative thought of pure purpose and power
Continuity of difference in each earthly flower.

Illumination provided for the mind, body and soul
All that is necessary to keep each of us whole.

The voice of a bird and the majesty of our sun
A crying baby is a gift to us; from the holy one.

The single wail of a passing train
Children's faces pressed against a window pane.

Another new day to incorporate the noise of man
The gift of human thought to find and understand.

To finish our toil at the end of each day
Acceptable to God the creator as if we did pray.

To question the sound of an airplane in the sky
Even if answered we would not understand why.

Boats on the water and their special roaring sound
What we do not seek will never be found.

Empty spider webs of intricate design
They also have a purpose for a very short period of time.
