Seen And Unseen

Poem By Rose M. Griffin

Words softly spoken with compassion,
Still fall harshly on my ears.
The sentence is imposed not for any crime committed,
Unless in unknown karmic sense,
But rather by my doctor who, healer though he be,
In this case cannot heal.
Duty bound, he must impart the truth,
"Your sight cannot be saved."
By whomever spoken, truth must be told,
And also be accepted.
The doctor's voice goes on,
"You will see light and darkness."
From somewhere comes a message,
"There are other ways of seeing."
Oh, seen and unseen--light and dark,
I shall choose the Light.

The Child I Was

The child I was, so many years ago,
Too young to understand my loneliness
Or know that sorrow as well as joy
Are commonplace in life.

Eternal Spring

In days now weaved together
In memory of eternal Spring, she waits.
Still loving earth
Yet ever more atuned, accepting.
