A four stanza poem that should have been more?

Step back from the abyss,

take a look,

it's free,

behold a monarch in flight.

Watch two dogs at play,

an infant's face as it sleeps,

gaze deeply

into your lover's


Enter a room where

one is dying,

not alone,

notice the power

of hands tightly


Breathe in the

true beauty

of life.

    From this poem, Ma, I can tell that you are a woman of worldly experience and truly appreciate and love every day.

    The last stanza seems to finalize the poem,

    although more could be added before it.

    Really, there's a whole world to contemplate

    with this theme, but you don't want to drag

    it on too long, or some may lose interest.

    Rather, let it stimulate the imagination, as it does.

    Are you asking me to use my senses and get reeeeeally educated!

    The world is full of what needs an observant eye, highly receptive ear, sensitive palm skin, and most importantly pure heart and open mind that soars high above the wanton flesh demands and greed.

    You spoke the truth in a straight forward manner. Thanks!

    Stepping back and breathing, watching what is around us. A good feeling. We forget sometimes. Good reminder and nice poem.
