Alive – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon


“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.” Joseph Campbell


Words fall like cold rain
from darkened opinions and the 
closed minds of guessing crowds
of discontent, who all along
skated the surface of books
hidden from the zest of life,
unable to recieve what is happening,
but for those who have shed their skin
and opened the eyes and ears of their heart,
everything is alive with the 
fire of doves and angels.
