Have You Ever

Have You Ever

Stood in a field of ripened gold grain
Lifted your face to be kissed by the rain
Felt in your heart the anguish of pain?
Held someone's hand in their hour of sorrow
Brought a new dream to the edge of tomorrow
Leaned on a friend finding strength to borrow?
Spent a sweet moment with a child at play
Given a home to a lost lonely stray
Found faces in clouds as they float away?
Held a lost moment hidden in time
Sucked on the juice of a tree ripened lime
Whispered a word in transcendant rhyme?
Descend in the depths and found yourself lost
Awakend with wonder to windowpane frost
Swallowed a slight despite the high cost?
Danced in the wind with a rose in your hair
Cried all alone with no one to care
Hoped for tomorrow with all you can share?
These are the moments that make life worthwhile
Knowing that living shares joy with the trial
And so much is solved when a face wears a smile.

    Have you ever found an old friend who's words are made of beauty. Looked at her picture when she was a cutie. Wished her warm greetings for the rest of the year. And wrote her a note sending Christmas cheer.

    Been thinking of you and hoping all's well! I had started illustrating a poetry booklet for a woman living in Ancaster. There must be something magical in your drinking water, Elizabeth. Keep well, love, Mikki

    I was thinking of you, Lizzie; wondering how you are and if you are okay. Your poetry and presence, your light, is very missed. I am praying you are STILL well and that things haven't changed, healthwise. Sending hugs your way...
