I am a Vessel

My heart and mind are porous like sea sponges.

Open and stretched to receive Your life lessons.

Toward the light my drooping spirit lunges.

Shining all around Your subtle expressions.

.

For all the days of my time on this blue Earth.

Times of joy have been mine to taste since birth.

I dance, I rejoice; wanting to sing my song.

For all these pleasures and more, I truly long.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
