It is the rock that parts the rushing stream,
a stream which wears, by bits, the rock.

The wind that bends the sapling down,
a sapling that survives the storm.

The earth solid beneath my feet,
a foot that falters along the path.

The sun that shines a summer day,
a moon that beams the winter night.

The next beat of my heart,
the last breath I take.

My inspiration's

My Faith

My love...

My love
for you.


"I place these moments in my pocket
to be pulled
at the rush of noon,
the crush of three...
when tears come,
when words must learn to be enough..." MKL

Yes, Love.
The enduring ambivalence of it all. This is wonderful Melinda. regards huni. (I seem to be unable to write anything at the moment, so am very glad there is so much wonderful writing to read while I wilt, perchance to write again.)

They all said the juiciest parts, but I saw the awning that you have put over our hearts, readers of this wonderful piece. Oh, yes, I love this piece so much, it's like a gift to those who should stumble upon this. I like 'my inspiration's desperation'...

In all things, my thanks

Again, my sincere apologies for the terrible lateness of my response.

charle, yes, it was intentionally done for effect.

~smile~ I'm sorry it didn't resonate with you, but that's more than okay, we can't 'hit one out of the park' every time, can we?

Lucie, you 'got' what I intended... thank you for your wonderful insight. You have a way of seeing into exactly what I meant to say. You are a dear, dear lady.

Claire, snuck sneaked, hey, I don't care... I'm thrilled that you liked this. You are Lit's treasure and that's the absolute truth!

Huni, you are such an excellent poet and even better person, thank you for being you! Your pen cannot remain silent; it's a blessing to us all!

Peter, you always touch my heart with your supportive, sweet and very poetic reviews... I love that about you.

Thanks, everyone for being so kind and patient with my lack of responses.

Love and respect,

In all things
Melinda, I agree with Lucie, while reading it, I almost felt like a leaf that was tossed in the wind, slowly I could feel myself, falling in a beautiful swaying motion. Beautiful write.
