A Gentle Soul

Silent stars shine under misty moonlight-
I call onto Capricorn to ease my flawed heart,
and I am a woman longing for peace,
a soul shining just to be stoned with grace,
fearing not what lies ahead.

I gaze upon sills and see photos not yet taken;
homes with rooms filled with empty promises
that perfume the air-
seeking a smile that could end a war.  

But-

I carry a scent of tender hope-
a sight to be seen when ease of mind is 
hungered for.
Gentle souls live forever,
and that is what I am…
               A GENTLE SOUL.

                              
                                   For I am an echo in time-
              wearing soft grains of kindness only an 
                                        hourglass could envy.
