beautiful. I love reading poety with such depth.

I'm not a poet myself (just wait until I decide to write one for the challenge and you'll see), but I started out on this one feeling awkward and a little lost. As the poem drew me in, though, towards the middle I finally began to catch the meter and feel the pace. By the end I was fully engrossed and pratically absorbing it rather than just reading it. I made me think of the way our relationship with God progresses. I'm not sure that was what was intended, but that's how it worked for me.

Your poem gives hope and reminds us that without it we are lost. The rhythm keeps our mind focussed on what you are saying and draws us into your mood.
