Bruce Mundhenke- Three Poems
In a moment of beauty I looked around
And all I saw was You.
If that moment could have lasted forever,
Forever it would have been new.
Have you not heard the Word,
Sighing in the breeze,
Descending with the rain,
Singing in the trees?
All that is heard came by the Word.
There were trees there in the garden,
They flourished in the wind,
Placed there with love,
Each to the others companion and friend.
Heavenly dew on their branches,
Not a rain drop yet had come.
Their joy was exceedingly full,
Knowing where they were from.
There was as yet no time there,
The past and present were one,
No evil yet had been done.
And they knew the Ancient One,
For He walked often in that grove,
They loved and were loved in perfect love,
And none with another strove.
Some still visit the garden,
For a brief time now and then,
And all of us long for the Ancient One,
He will walk among us again.
