The Poetry of Life

The Poetry of Life October 21, 2013


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.
