Stephen Jarrell Williams - One Poem


So many of us wilting
under our circumstances,


a quiet pause,

flower by the stream

sipping cool water,

our strength coming back

again young...

and for a moment we are there,

no numbering of days,

timeless in the sun,

no questioning heaven,

falling into the future


we bloom forever.
