Spiritual and Inspirational poetry that touch the heart and soul, and provoke the mind.

JOY

The joy of
Living I
See in
Kitten’s play,
A spotted fawn’s
Run..
The kick of
A new foal..

The joy of
Living I
Hear in
A small child’s
Laugh..
The fragile bird’s
Song
The lonely wolf
Howl!

They know
Not of spitefulness
Or hate
Of revenge
Or greed
And their
Tomorrows
Are
Now!…
