Oh, that time would stand still!
In those moments of bright clarity
Treasured in our hearts and
Seared in our memories
Of those we hold dear
For life and love and family
Friends and church gathered ‘round
God’s holy ground, simple and true
We open eyes to brilliant color
Ears to laughter and tears
A gentle touch and helping hands
Life’s essence … caught in a fleeting moment.

This is good — in content and craft. I finished a book, Every Day Is a Poem, by Jacqueline Suskin. She has a unique way of teaching the value of poetry and she recommends to all writers to read poetry every day. So I’m glad to find your poems in my email inbox. Thanks.
