The Sands of Time

The Sands of Time

A Poem by Phil Sanders
"

General musings....

"
Slowly the shifting sands of time pass by
Grains of opportunity to be grasped
Decisions like the lottery of life
Cascade from deep within your soul
A moment’s hesitation and its lost
Nirvana washed away by swirling winds
Happiness cast out to all the corners of the earth
To blow around the desert that is strife
Redemption from the darkness of the mind
Enlightenment a ray of sweet delight
A chance to live again in ecstasy
Contentment flowing softly through the veins
You see the seagull soar into the clouds
No worries just simplicity divine
The azure blue reflecting on its wings
And forging such exquisite peaceful flight
The mind is floating there upon the wind
It sails with such an open beating heart
Allowing all the sense to respond
Waiting for the patterns to unfold
A rainbow of bright thoughts gush forth
Watering the brain’s perception
Amending the spontaneity of life
Within the depths of your very being
Such instants provide profound remorse
Or tantalising visions of maybe
If lucky they fulfil desires untold
And still life’s journey sallies forth

You are a man who understands your own soul of contentment.
There is such solitude within you, and therfore you have been
given the greatest gift. Your words flow on calmness, and a gratititude
for life. Excellent! I love this line:

It sails with such an open beating heart Allowing all the sense to respond Waiting for the patterns to unfold A rainbow of bright thoughts gush forth Watering the brain's perception

These are inspiring lines..AD

*And still life's journey sallies forth.


Your poem pretty much wraps up an ordinary woman's life. Yup and yup. I miss you.
