Have You Ever

Summer 2012 007

Poem number twenty NaPoWriMo

 

Have you ever heard the ring of a bell

that tolls from a distance

clearly echoing on a quiet morning

in the stillness of the air

 

have you ever seen

the fiery red of sunrises

and the orange glow of sunsets

that are a part of each new day

 

have you ever thought

how quiet and still

are the days

when all the song birds have flown away

 

have you ever wondered

what is behind the gray clouds

that seem to cover

every winter’s day

 

or perhaps to consider

how many trees make a forest

or how many fish

must be in the sea

 

perhaps to decide

where each new road leads

and where to find the happiness

that people seek

 

the answers lie in our heart

and in the love we share

the knowledge comes

from many centuries past

 

we must never forget

to hold onto our dreams

and look for all of life’s treasures

that will fulfill our life and make it so much better
