Here We Are (poem)

Updated on January 19, 2014

Wonder with me

Wonder hits home

Did I do enough with my life

Could I have done more

-

So many people

So many heights

Reaching out for that something

Deep within their soul

-

Numberless talents

Numberless goals

Confusing are the currents

In a sparkling stream

-

But here we are right now

Sharing a touch of something

A break perhaps for thought

A chance to step back awhile

-

What made this jewel

Master of its unique rainbow

Shining new colors

Shining places missed

-

This fragrant flower

Who fashions the breath of life

Some live in fields

Some die for kisses

-

There amid a smile

Rests the only true answer

Wonder with me

Wonder hits home

Music only

      Many of us at my age (60) have wondered if we could have done more. Very well expressed and a nice poem.

      One could write a whole book just on "Wonder."

      Many famous authors have. I thought your opening was very powerful.

      "Wonder with me

      Wonder hits home

      Did I do enough with my life

      Could I have done more?"

      I love the wonder that opening stanza provokes in the reader. "Could I have done more?" A heck of a writing prompt if I have ever heard one!

      Good poem, with nice music to accompany it.
