Existence

The raindrop clinging
to the last of leaves in fall.

The sound of snow
melting in a moonlit garden.

The cotton candy clouds
capturing the first pink of dawn.

The scent of oolong tea
in a library a cloudy winter day.

All of this and more
is grace of my existence

  1. I enjoyed your reading, Bjorn, the image of the ‘raindrop clinging
    to the last of leaves in fall’ and I tried hard to hear the ‘sound of snow
    melting in a moonlit garden’, which was very calming.

  2. Oh, Björn! I can’t tell you how excited I was to see you added a recording of the poem on here! I’ve missed some posts because I was on a rather long holiday and avoided all technology for most of the trip, so this was fun to have as the first piece to read now that I’m back.
    My favorite part, “The sound of snow
    melting in a moonlit garden.”
    Excellent poem! 😃

  3. “The cotton candy clouds / capturing the first pink of dawn.” Grace’s other names: Eos and Phoebe! The first, bending light of dawn is evidence of life-giving grace for sure!

  4. Oh–this is lovely, Björn. Soothing, somehow, and I can smell that tea and hear and see it all.
    I liked your reading. It was interesting reading it in my voice, and then hearing how the words sounded when you said them.

  5. So good to be back reading your work–this is excellent! A similar take to my own on this prompt, a reminder that all of life is special, if we take the time to notice.
