BEFORE WE KNOW…
By Aliana Alani ©2019
As the sun begins its shine upon the morning,
Sending flecks of gold light along its path,
I find myself grateful.
Grateful for the budding warmth.
Grateful for the birdsong building.
Grateful for this garden of life,
You and I call – home.
A slow-turning globe of endless beauty.
A world that dazzles with its diversity
And humbles with its call to greatness.
Yes, things sometimes fall away.
They can crumble and burn unexpectedly
Or ebb and tide when least desired.
Tears fall then. Hearts crack open.
And when they do, before we know,
Before we understand,
New life has begun.
A new dawn
And the garden, more abundant than before
Our garden –
A garden of Love.
