A Mustard Seed

Time is indeed precious laden,growing older is a gift of awareness...a journey of love.

The Mustard Seed

Faith is not made of proof
Nor list of rules;
Faith is not found in genius
of mind.
Faith is not fear or sorrow's
tear...
Faith is not stone
set on this earthly ground.

Faith is wisp, that whisper
God placed in all our souls...

In Closing

Spirals of time,
Soul and mind...

In the depth of each
moment...
Finite and eternal both
reside.


Poetry is "the music of literature,"
May it always hold a place
in the halls of history...
and humanities heart.

hello LOVERME, ah, time and change, change and time-the future needs the art of poetry, more today than ever before... "tender is each day" and so the poet writes! The internet is still in an "evolving stage" and I think it has become, in a way, its own very strange sort of world. I have many concerns , but keep a very hope-filled attitude and heart.. I always appreciate your taking the time to stop by my page, thank you and keep well...

Morning LOVERME, I do not see that wiki has any sponsored advertising on my pages now, I do believe in this internet world that would be they way they would receive payment for any "clicking on" to read our works, but that is just a quess on my part.
My poetry has always been only about the need, the very joy, of writing.
I wrote poetry as a child,
and have always carried on writing, but never saved it before, and now it is saved, and copyrighted by the fact of publishing on wikinut....
(Poetry is my art, not my ego)...the whispers of my soul...

i finally wrote the finish of the poem, and here it is, as I promised completed...
_____________
Daybreak's,
Like a mother's comforting touch
as she lifts back the hair from her
beloved child's brow.
Morning, and windswept now are the clouds ...

Here is the Autumn depth of a blue, blue sky...
I feel an urgency in the beauty of this day...
It's an overwhelming understanding
of thie gift of growing old.

So much wonder inside me unfolds...

I am sure it is a message from my soul.

With a profusion of tenderness,
Grateful for this journey,
I travel on...

Happiness is not found within,
Spread some kindness,
and you,
yourself find it...

It is possible to be...kind and strong!

You are not the measure of potential...
You are already more!

I was surprised that wikinut still has so many reading the pages here.

Perhaps your poetry is the reason why.

Quality writing draws others to it.

Hello spirited, so nice to see you again...what a very generous hearted comment! Wikinut indeed has so many talented writers pages archived here! Your visit is very much appreciated spirited. I hope all is well with you and your family, and that you are as busy as ever writing. Wishing you spirited all the best:0) and many thanks.

Thanks Delicia.

Yes, I think the name "wikinut" helps. People might think that the site is something like the site, "wikipedia", and go there to be informed about stuff too.

Otherwise, how could I be getting still 200 to 300 views per day, when I haven't written anything here for many years.

I am writing on a site, called, "Mylot", and siva is there too. I know that you know him too.

Spirited, Siva and Loverme have been working together, to keep daily, a light in the window to mark the way back to Wikinut I do think... :0)

Yes, I can see that. I wonder if the moderators are still approving new posts though.

I have been testing that, and have a post that's been sitting idle, unmoderated for a week now.

I wonder if anyone will look at it, to approve it, or if the site is more or less dead to new posts now.
