A Pike Place Poem –

On Tuesday morning I drove up to the market and found some rockstar parking – but I noticed this guy running up to each passerby asking a question and it ended with them shaking their heads and walking away quickly.  Being the wimp that I am – I debated moving the car and looking for new parking.  This was a REALLY good spot – and I just couldn’t give it up.  So I busied myself in my car looking around and hoping he would go away – finally I had to get out so I put my head down and bee lined it for the meter, I didn’t make it. As soon as I heard his voice I knew he was nice – he was very young and seemed sweet.  He asked if he could write me a poem because he was working on a book and needed some inspiration.  So of course I said yes, I ran and got some coffee and when I came back this is the poem he had written.  (What a fun start to the day – I love people in the city!)


Before a mirror of perfection, A wonder of a smile in cosmic beauty Rests upon a mountain of dreams to Bring a golden seed into your Inner right, in an Embrace of burning rose that it grows to become, for your life’s most precious Truth.

    I love this story. It’s too bad you didn’t get his name. He might become someone someday…maybe tomorrow. Thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel
