“The highest proof of the spirit is love.”  Albert Schweitzer

 

Seeing

When the prophet spoke
the wait was long and dry
till some shepherds called
though few believed their news,
I glimpse her if I’m careful
in children passing by,
birds, laughter, dragonflies,
faces on the street,
wise wind of Sophia
ancient eternal present,
heartfelt.

  1. Isn’t this so true, of life’s most precious, beautiful things?
    “I glimpse her if I’m careful
    in children passing by,
    birds, laughter, dragonflies,
    faces on the street”

  6. A quiet traveler, looking for (invisible) crumbs. Magic moments can happen at any time, and oh such a delight each time they do.
