I first had "Than", but my spell checker said "Then". Two good "oldsters" can't be wrong, so I changed it back to "Than". Sounds good, don't you think?

Nice! Babies' cries, the wind whistling, seagulls calling. I like this image a lot.

Maybe instead:[b] And I know: I am part of the pattern [/b]?

soul mates

Have you ever felt that you are, naturally and spiritually, part of something bigger than yourself?



I notice a distant sailboat silhouetted


Against the static pattern of the sun upon the water


The pattern catches me for awhile


Random flashings of dark and light



I am like that I realize,


And sense that the lake and I have more in common


Than I usually believe. 2 comments


And I know, somehow, that this is right




Seagulls ever searching for a new crumb


Cry upon the wind like babies 1 comment


Their cries linger upon my soul


Like a distant, haunting rite



I hear the waves beating upon the shore---


Repetitious in their cadence


A sound that traces its pattern through long, long ages


It merges with my soul and grounds me.  O vast delight!



The lake keeps on touching me


As the cool, moist breeze plays with my hair.


It causes my natural curls to tighten,


And I know.  I am a part of the pattern 1 comment
