I Must Be Mad

I must be mad...I wonder if ants get tired as the weight of a crumb bears down upon them... for survival. I wonder if dogs think...I wonder if houses weary of their occupants. I must be mad...I wonder if houses weary of their occupants. I must be mad...I wonder if trees yearn to move - or do they never long to stretch their roots... See a city. I think too much - abstract thought that gives life to a rock. A flower is more than an ornament to a vase... Perhaps I think of ants and trees and dogs because they are so quiet. A tree never kills... The ant carries a crumb never complaining. Yes, I must be mad. Patricia Langston-Moran

How great is that are a 78 year old poet!! I am SO reassured, really, I'm 60 and act about 40? Loved the verse above..loved it and...sometimes I think the only sane people are mad! I am going to read more and more of you! Light & Love PS you still have time to figure out who He is who you are etc. Where there's life there's hope.
