Journey Round the Block

I found myself 
Out walking yesterday 
In the warmth of the sun 
And cool of the shade
Talking to the One 
Within about who
And what I truly am 
As a sentient, human being
And a man.  I discovered
Nothing more or less remarkable 
Than the sum total of all 
The thoughts, words and deeds
I’ve ever produced, not withstanding 
Every drop of love I’ve known.
With every step I took, in retrospect
I saw how much the grass had grown.
While birds flew by as if I
Were standing still inside
A vacuum or vortex deep in space
Waiting for this magic moment 
To dissolve and disappear.   
Seeing the world more clear
I ended my journey ‘round the block 
Thankful I still have some time left 
On the clock.

    A nice lovely walk under the morning sun. T. Martin. How fresh to feel the love that waits for you along the journeys in your life. A fabulous write. Amazing effort when facing and knowing that you have left... Thank you for enjoying one of my older writers.. Stop by my latest if you like. Hope you decide to stop by... xox~ LINDA

    Poetry as could only be mastered by your pen, master wordsmythe. Good to see you back on this block. Visiting your site often for the sheer enjoyment of it. Sending smiles your way. You've been sorely missed, Terry. :-)

    Hi Delysia! Nice to hear from you as well. Although I "finished" the web site, it's never completely finished because it requires constant care & attention. I'm trying my best to write again and glad to know you haven't forgotten me. Are you back in the states now? What's cookin m'lady? Terry
