Utopia - Poem by Barry Middleton

on a clear stream in the mountains
there was peace

in the garden before evil entered
there was grace

now the silent dawn calls us back
to beginnings

to the pure waters and sweet air
of paradise

if we will only reach out for truth
hope is waiting

like the winter waits for the spring
another chance

like love waits with the anticipation
of longing

like time waits for the astonishment
of utopia
