what is this thing
that sings in the darkness
that flings itself around
my heart like a golden
ring that dulls the sting
of careless words and
spiteful acts that wings
itself around this globe
to bring us face to face
to cling together linger
in the pale light of faith
mingle with a universe
alive with promise

  1. I really enjoyed the sound qualities of this poem, the repetition of -ings gave it a circular movement. Such an important message too.


  2. “a universe alive with promise” what a wonderful image. This piece has such a hopeful tone and a great pace, the reader flows from beginning to end like a leaf in the stream. Great writing…Loved it. Thanks for participating, I appreciate it.
