The Poem of Life

the rhythm of days
defining seasons display

a promising rhyme
within the meter of time

the prose of perception
conceiving the
the meaning of conception

the art of existing
for the story sublime

embarking for sojourn
bless-ed of trial

with journeys
to fulfill
as seasons refine

returns do adjourn
the weight to abate

as twists n turns
become straight
along wisdom of miles

alas days will grow dim
yet this night glows bright

for it’s now held within
this celestial light

tis why we’re destined to recite
beyond mortal strife

the poetry of living
in the poem of life
