Gentle steps





Gentle Steps

Let my step be delicate as
I walk through the sand of 
time allotted in this given
life – let me disturb not a
single blade of beach grass 
as I pass –let me leave un-
molested the pastel-tender
wild- flowers sprinkling
the path that leads
down sea-ward
Let my step be
delicate as I
walk in the
sands of
time into
an aqua-
marine
sea as it
rises to
rock me
in an
end-
less
lulla-

  2. Dr. Pearl, this is so lovely and soothing. I esp love the ending from "into an aqua-marine sea... " and the format you used is so effective, like starting out strong and ending with a soft whisper.

  3. Ah --- walking with a delicate step during our allotted time...if only we remember to do this each day of living. I like the message as well as the form.

  4. Breathtaking, Pearl. You KNOW the mermaid in me adores this, in word and shape. :) Mine is a lullaby, also.

  5. Beautifully expressed.There are a few of us that feel this way, just wish there were a billion or so more.
