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.
I carry a scent of tender hope-
a sight to be seen when ease of mind is
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.
