I am

I am
the wind in your hair
the salt on your lips
the shiver up your spine

no I am not
the divine
or too much wine
or anything sublime

I am
that fine silver thread
that unwinds in your head
uniting everything instead

I am
nature
and nurture
kindly concern

I thrive in your heart
deep within
evolving despite sin

some try to bury me
but kindness can liberate me
so simple to set me free

coz I am
innate
endless
unlimited

I am
a resource
resilience
compassion

you know me
but not immortality
until you unite unconditionally

d’Verse, I am …,Β  Grace

  4. PPS…I thought you were writing about grace and then clicked on the link and saw the prompt was from someone named Grace.
    I’ve reread your poem and I’m still thinking about grace…because grace and mercy bring about peace, kindness, civility, unity, harmony, respect, honor…etc. πŸ™‚ And we need to have all these with other humans AND with nature. πŸ™‚
    More HUGS!!! πŸ™‚
