Moments' Grace

                      meandering creek reaches conclusion
                      finds silence and reverence
                      in shadow of seclusion

                      subdued light gives deference
                      off road and traveled way
                      finds silence and reverence

                      in shadows secrets stay
                      as the land knows no time
                      off road and traveled way

                      in reflections it finds divine
                      the creek finds its place
                      as the land knows no time

                      moments spent give moments’ grace
                      time blessed and true
                      as the creek finds its place

                      meandering creek reaches its conclusion
                      subdued light gives deference
                      in shadows secrets stay
                      in reflections it finds divine
                      moments spent give moments’ grace

    I'm glad I was able to share a peaceful feeling. I used to take long runs by the creek and feace peaceful event during difficult times. Now when I walk near it, I still get this peaceful feeling, along with a feeling of gratitude for my many years of running.

    I'm glad you like the poem. I can further look into the Villanelle form and experiment with it. Thanks.

    You have written a very beautiful poem with nice expressions but I think you look into the form of Villanelle
