Good There

Dark comes

Piers piled

Waves crush

Timbers split

Souls rent

 

Floods steal

Scenes lost

Fires bury

Moments fog

Places bent

 

Rubble stirs

Hearts beat

Light flows

Beams scattered

Flickered flight

 

Good shines

Pure strength

Beauty blooms

Memories birthed

Lift night

Great tragedy opens doors for great spirit.  Have you seen it?  Shoot me a comment.  I’m looking forward to hearing all about it.

    This was beautiful. I didn’t know you were a poet, too, along with all your other talents!

    I think every “bad” thing that has happened in my life makes me a far better parent than I would have been otherwise. I like to tell my teenaged daughter, “I’ve already lived your life. No need to do it again”.

      Since we are bound to make mistakes, it’s a great idea to learn from them. Certainly, all of our experiences, good and bad, shape who we are and the parents we develop into. It’s too bad that teens, mine included, aren’t more willing to learn from our mistakes rather than repeating them themselves.
