A Writing Journey

Poetry Corner – I Am

I am the willow –

Mourning that I cannot

Reach the sky like my kin,

Yet compassionate enough

To provide shelter for the heartsick.

I am the stone

Beneath your feet –

Cold and hard, cracked and

Weathered by time and cares,

Yet a firm foundation to stand upon.

I am the stars

Shining even in death,

Sharing beauty from beyond the grave,

Blazing through the night.

I am everything and

I am nothing.

The universe converges within me

And I am huge.

The universe embraces me

And I am minute.

I am one –

We are one.

All is one and

One is all

In the Universe.

I hope you all remember that life is good, and that we are much more than we sometimes seem.

Take care, fellow travelers.

    A wonderful poem (:

  2. Willow trees, stone, stars–some of my favourite symbols! This poem feels rich, ancient, and ageless. It encompasses all but yet targets the small. As always, your poetry is a delight to read 🙂

  3. Beautiful images created by this poem.
