send a poem--By jani johe webster--United States

send a poem

send a poem
thru the snowflakes
    of dawn
and the sun of twilight

listen to the seagull
talk with the night

draw a golden circle
around each heartbeat

while you watch
    the doves of peace
        carrying blue lights
            of shimmering hope
a beacon of light
for the soul
of the earth

Thoughts from Nila Webster--My beloved mother, jani johe webster, wrote this poem many years ago, without fully knowing the incredible manifestation of Karen O'Leary's online journal Whispers.  This poem reflects the beauty of Whispers:  that poets around the world can send their poems "thru snowflakes of dawn", sacred messages of lyrical beauty, and treasures that, in dark moment, illuminate the way.


  1. Hi Nila. It is always a joy to read your mom, jani's poetry. "send a poem" glistens with reflective images of some of Earth's most natural beauties: snowflakes, dawn, twilight, and so forth. I enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing it and continued blessings!
