importance

van gogh

vincent van gogh

it is important
to love and
to hold tight
the smile of a
stranger
to breathe in trees
of the forest
cherish the hug
of someone
i love and
to listen
to the melodic
ripple
of a determined rill
for i am loathe
to let the dark
clouds of the everyday
shadowed valley
delay progress
toward the mountain top
surely i can
gather all
critical points
in life which
lined up shall 
make beauty
shine bright
and emanate
all goodness
