The Poetry of Life


Love is the poetry of life
Gratitude its prose

Kindness the sentences
In patience composed

Prayer is the syntax
As Heaven knows

Be silent then, or
Speak truly

As the moon does
As the river flows

As each breath
Of our life goes

And each day
Of loving kindness

Is better than
The one before

And life itself
Becomes a poem

Until our last breath
And the farther shore

Irving Karchmar is a writer, poet, and the author of Master of the Jinn: A Sufi Novel. He also writes the Darvish blog.
