Hear the silence
the night’s mysteries
into the embrace of time.
Like strands of pearls
the moments of joy
and the moments of pain
are silently joined together
to become the colorful mosaic
of each life
and of all humankind.
And you will know.

This was a nice and easy poem to read. It reminded me of the need for the joy and pain to mix together and form a mosaic of life. Those were beautiful words. Sometimes, I look back and realize what I thought was pain was the opportunity to grow and see life differently. It was a necessary part of becoming a more complete person.
Thanks Ivon. I agree that often it may take some time to see painful experiences as growth opportunities – looking back we may distinguish the more beautiful pattern that resulted from such an experience.
You are welcome. People have enjoyed this post.

The way you listen to the earth and the places your feet takes you speaks of a sensitivity to our shared humanity which I think is precious. This poem is beautiful. May we all learn to listen. Sharon
