Perseverance





An amazing, awe inspiring phenomenon, is life
Born from cosmic dust
Evolved from a single cell
Growing, ever changing
The will and desire to survive, fierce and powerful
Instinct drives and demands
In the face of all odds
That the miracle of life
In spite of human indifference or exploitation
Shall continue to adapt
Moving ever forward
'Till the bright light
Of the cosmos is extinguished for all time

That is an eerie picture, Pam. Is it life that is sifting through the cupped hands? Very effective and disturbing. Your poem is lovely and puts things into perspective.

Wow, Pam. I am so impressed. You have really captured the essence of life, in my opinion.

That photo is really haunting and fits the kind of work(soil and water conservation) that I do. Do you sell your art?

Hi Pam,
I love the photograph. I agree with Laurie that you have captured the essence here. Sometimes I look at my cat Tarzan, and I think to myself "He is a miracle, a measure of beauty and kindness, how did he come to be?" The photo holds that magic.

Thank you so much for letting me use that picture in my PowerPoint Pam. It is the first slide and it looks awesome! I used the poem too. I can't wait to give the presentation. I know it will be a big hit!
