MOMENTS OF JOY
Riffling through sheets of random paper, sorting, organizing, and discarding duplicates of already published documents, I stopped stock still! I held in my hands a poem, I recalled it often....but then it had escaped into the archives of (oh no) hard copy storage.
And there it was in all its glory, a poem co-written with a mentor/friend of long ago.
MOMENTS OF JOY
A story is sleeping like a seed under the winter snow.
It is time to coax the flower to life with the coming of April.
* "That's a Book!" Are We Listening?
God Speaks to Us:
In whispers and thunderclaps,
In the quiet of gentle rain and autumn nights.
In crystal winters diamond cold.
Ice melts into April mist.
A mare nuzzles her newborn foal in the foggy dawn.
A kitten purrs furiously and rubs "good morning."
A puppy barks joyfully, running and jumping with his human.
The telephone rings, a friend's voice soothes, a letter comes
at just the "right moment" in time.
Louise reminds us: "God Speaks to Us in Moments of Joy ."
"Let the petals of your life unfold like a rose opening, one at a time and each in perfect order," Louise Watson, R.N.
