Special Feature Collaborative Poem--By ayaz daryl nielsen and Peggy Dugan French—United States

home again

By ayaz daryl nielsen and Peggy Dugan French

thrumming our melodies
the earth sings her tune in harmony with us 
we can hear the winged prophecy
calling us to dream
as compassion’s witnesses
hope rises as formless
being, being healthy,
being home again
just, to
be.

  5. Before I saw that Karen had posted it in my e-mail, I heard a "whispering" early this morning,in the twilight zone; your name, Ayaz. I wondered why I had heard that name and didn't connect it with yours until I came to my e-mail this morning and saw it. Duh!!! At any rate, yours and Peggy's wonderful inspired collaboration was confirmation of the journey I have been on, which has included the compassionate witnesses of Jesus Christ, even angels, and I am finally "home", having found rest in Him. Thank you for sharing your inspiration
    Love, Charlene

    An example of a beautifully written 'diminuendo'

  8. I wonder if Ayaz and Peggy are referring to the sound that reverberates ceaselessly, as their beautiful lines seem to indicate. I find this poem enigmatic. Thank you to the two of you.
