DUST AND CLAY
and post notes and photos about your poem like Dorian Petersen Potter.
The oceans shores with their rocky paths,through which,
I can can still see a shining ray of light.
Far away sinking into splendor, too great for a heart
Was to hold.
The heart has its own memory, like the mind, to keep afloat
Its faith to fight it for you through, alone,
The giver's loving thought, and fearless heart who fights
Again the foe.
Pleasures come but not permanently stay, even this moment
Now shall pass away,
In that all the rest may be cast away, and that all our mortal
Flesh, must go back to where it came from, to dust and clay.
Dorian Petersen Potter
