Sunday poetics

Renewal of the bones
           of all that moves you
your soul fabric
           the flesh and blood
of your imagination
           words turned
to known purposes
           movements of the mind
in art and dance and music
           each breath valued
each beat of your heart
           and in your poetry
a kindness of understanding
           a yearning for wisdom
lines layered in love
           as petals to the rose

John Lyons
