The Writer

The secret of life, making old things new: fluffing the seas long flattened by sails… restoring clouds to the summits of mountains, not one worth the climb were it not for high mysteries I sit, pen in hand as if holy-- we are all priests of a sort (both light and dark) our sacrament that of creation.

And a writer in each of us. So much fun to compose poems and music, to paint and create with other mediums. Everyone should give something try. Thank you so much, Darlene. Blessings my friend!
