       Don't look for a particular rhyming scheme here, or any kind of rhythm. If it's there, it is simply random. There is a pattern, but only in the number of lines in a stanza. The poem is about...well..you decide.

    In an echo of words

    The silence stirred to dawn
    Nothing more, nothing less
    A keepsake that was found

    The tumbling of the clouds
    The innocence of the rain

    A world overflowing with deceit
    Transient delights that tempt the soul
    Pass them by, pass them on

    From the reticent mirrors of truth
    Into the distance of it all

    Without a doubt
    With no regrets
    For silence is their fate

    Such trifle things
    Lost in absent thought

    Breathe and let it live
    Smile and hide it no more
    The endless calling that envelops

    For what of the time?
    Let it beckon away

    Of that which holds so true
    From silence given through
    The echoes danced away

    Enough is said of rapture
    For the hopes of what might be

    In an echo of words

      This poem speaks to me of all the religions , philosophies , theories etc. , about everlasting life , or the eternal soul , ("A keepsake that was found") . How they so often preach abstinence from evil as the way to this permanence , ("Pass them by , pass them on") . And then how you can miss out on the true beauty of life when pursuing these thoughts , ("Lost in absent thought") . Sort of living life in-absentia . Then you seem to reconcile with these thoughts , ("The endless calling that envelops") , and with that they seem perhaps less important and more easily understandable , as the echos of all those words dance away . Because , perhaps
    "Enough is said of rapture

    Maybe I'm way off the beaten trail here but I rather liked it as I thought it went . Definitely too many people on God , and not enough realistic humanitarian endeavor .
