The Symphony of Being

Overview

This is a book of poetry by Patrick J. Leach. It focuses on the symphony and meaning of being.

The Symphony of Being
(the deliverance)

Compelling the way it plays out inside
Once born the mystery derives
Gathering momentum
In the educated mind

The value of learning goes well beyond
Money earned and influence to wield
Getting lost in library stacks
Letting the mind go where it will

The powers of discernment
Like snowflakes building up on steps
Leading up to my house
The morass plays on

The symphony of being
The myriad of experience
Like instruments playing mournful, soulful music
To tantalize the mind

Being human, an unknown journey
From distant place to distant place
Writing symphonies on flesh
The tapestries of life

In a lifetime given to gathering
Money, people, and things-
The ultimate goal is to let it all go

These poems are born of love, heartbreak, experiences, hope, disappointments, all the things that any of us here on earth go through in our lives in varying degrees over our time here.

I hope it makes your journey a little easier to appreciate, a little wiser, more loving. We share so much in common, more than we think, living here on planet earth.

They took her into hospice today
Promising it would be a short stay
Before returning home
