Today's Prompt ~ English Sonnet
The Poetry Pantry #48
To hold a gift of Nature in your hand
To be at one with tiny breathing life
To see the charm of water souls on land
To feel the pulse of peace without the strife
Is knowing that the treasures of this earth
Are not the precious metals that we think
Nor are they gems that promise wealth re-birth
Nor are they guarantees that pain will shrink.
It's understanding that we share our space.
We live to give a richer life to all.
Our mansions are our inner hope and grace
Where Eden gardens blossom strong and tall.
And no one knows the universe within,
A secret world beneath a clay like skin.
