Simple things

Veiled Splendor

Folder: 
Beauty

 

Simple treasures,

A divine line separating

Other divine things.

A balance of art hangs

In you, in me, in the world.

Simple treasures,

A notion of abstractions

Dying to be noticed.

An eruption follows through.

In you, in me, in the world.

Simple treasures,

In light and in the absence

Amongst the in between.

Harvest the seconds in time

In you, in me, in the world.

Simple treasures,

Morality bends in shapely ways

Across mountains and seas.

Blossoming like flowers

In you, in me, in the world.

The Meaning of Life

Folder: 
Just a thought!

                          The Meaning of Life                
The times of youth have come and gone
so you cherish all your days.
The things we took for granted
are now viewed in special ways.
A blooming flower or budding tree
will often bring a smile...
It's those simple things in life now
that amuse us for a while.
The Geese overhead or some squirrels at play
will tend to catch our eye
These things we see now everyday...
does it make you wonder why?
From the day you are born , It's The Meaning of Life,
You seek throughout your years.
In your search for truth and knowledge
came more questions, laughter and tears.
Your emotions ran wild and your need for discovery
took you to far away places
But, The Meaning of Life, is what they all seek...
All these friends in New Lands with new faces.
The answers you'll find, are not Worlds away or
hiding in Far away Lands
The "Meaning of Life" is a simple thing
Right there in the palm of your hands.
"All the Beauty God chose to create for us
And the things we were all Blest to do"...
That's "The Meaning of Life", and You see it now...
"All These Things God Created For You!"

This poem started with the title"Youthful Days"
and took it's own path,
Guess I started thinking
where I am now instead of where I was then!
