THE ESSENCE / Poem by Maria Miraglia

 
Poem by Maria Miraglia
 
 
 
THE ESSENCE
 
I will not allow boredom
tomorrow
to bite my soul
pain to tear my heart
nor will I ever more stop
listening to howling voices
but the birdsong
when light they dance
under starless vaults
the rustle of leaves
at nightfall
or the murmur of water
where the willows are reflected
 
Then
In the echo of time
I will hear His eternal voice
and will no more
let life slip away
like candle smoke
that in the blink of wings
disperses in the air
 
Of my journey
I will grasp the beauty
of life
its essence
 
@Maria Miraglia
