There Must Have Been A Reason - Poem by Mary Angela Douglas

there must have been a reason

the ancient artisans lived alone

carving the jade breeze


becoming the flute the breath of God

passed through

the melancholic wind chime


there the leaves turned lightly in the wind.

the thought of missing friends

and dragonflies were


violet, flitting through long afternoons

and dream poured into the wider tributaries

one lifeime wasn't enough


only to see the snowdrops flourishing

silver among

the pink hills..
