PostSubject: Weathering Heights (rare heir)   Thu Mar 30, 2017 3:35 pm

It is rare
Uncommon…
No warmth in a cold unbelieving stare
So indeed…
It is rare
When something heard or seen in a dream
And a prompt accompanies
And a voice is heard
Then shared
Received… in belief… accepted as “true”
It is rare
Such long roads traveled
To get us there
The miracle apparent
Melts cold stares
And tears prevail
When eagles dare
There is a boldness before us
Refreshing, restoring…
That only need be grasped
Hands clasped together
Gather more
Than freed hands
Without guidance
What is rare
Is only rare
Because we have too easily
Accepted the common, mundane, uninspired, routines…
As exceptional
Everyday miracles abound
All around us
Unannounced…
In arrival
Without a sound
While standing where feet may have gotten temporarily cold and wet
Remained focused, intent, obedient, Persevered, elevated…
Moved on when it was the hardest thing to do
And a backwards glance over a shoulder reveals where once stood
And others feet along the same path had blistered, seared, despaired
Sunken slowly and drowned
Where once was a puddle
Now stands a lake…manmade
