The Magnificence Of Life - Poem by (brief renderings) Joe Fazio

With eyes closed, in complete darkness and
solitude, my minds eye took me to the mountain top.
There I sat surveying the magnificence of life.
The valleys distant and blanketed in green, ringed
with great trees...that rose towering from the ground
to touch the clouds so white.

The poppies and the jasmine and the lilac in the
field played in a gentle a breeze, like siblings on
a summer day.

A stream clear and pure as the heart of God, slid slowly
down the mountain side, feeding the willow, that dipped
her branches in the liquid that is life.

The birds and all the creatures of natures house, sang
to me a love song. The words and sounds held the beauty
of the angles and bathed my soul in peace.

A single ray of brilliant sunlight caused my head to
turn and I saw upon a bed of moss a tiny feathered
friend...whose wings were stilled by death.

My spirit wept and my heart did break, for this tiny
creature of His would soar no more.

Tears flowed freely...for here in the midst of His garden
of life...I had witnessed a part of Him die.
