How will I savor this day

How will I savor this day

A Poem by north star

This is the first sonnet I have written in years...I am rusty but wanting feed back from those who enjoy and understand sonnet...thanks for sharing your insight


How will I savor this day’s grace filled light?

My heart and mind, flooded to overflow,

Feared the fleeting nature captured by sight

And losing God’s whisper if I’d let go.

In the gray, uncolored minutes of life

Lost to time, wounded, I embraced the night

And dark so cold, to numb that caused by knife,

Breathing only in hope to stay upright.

And yet, muscle straining, each step I climbed

Breathless stepping atop granite hard place

Above valley shadows, limits, space, time.

Now, how will I savor this light filled grace?

I lean into your heart, feel warm, see light

Even after my eyes are closed at night.
