The author expresses how life responds

When Life Responds

The birds do not leave the nest 
My grandma gave us the best
Feeling her love from her heart
Was more enticing than being smart
She said what more will you learn?
Some will grasp life,
Some will forever yearn
Some will know it later and some never;
Some learn in school and some on the street
The most important - what will endure forever        

What is in the brain is not what happens in life
What happens in our life, we cannot see
We see only the smallest part.
The other one is what counts.

What we feel is the love that bonds
And hints to us where we are bound
Sometimes a sight, sometimes a sound
Will wake us up, as life responds.

Such a beautiful write my friend...inspiring indeed! Our life will reflect the choices that we make throughout life! A very warm and caring poem, I cherish my memories with my grandmother canning vegetables in the fall, planting flowers in the spring, scraped knees, chocolate pies, and later in life the wonderful advice that she gave me when my children were ill, or walking to church with her as I was blessed at that time to live very near her. I miss her much, but know that we will meet again when my time comes...touching and beautiful...enjoyed!
Blessings from Ky.

Emile - Love the title. Life is the ultimate judge of the worth of our choices. Especially liked the concluing stanza:

What we feel is the love that bonds
And hints to us where we are bound
Sometimes a sight, sometimes a sound
Will wake us up, as life responds.

We carry with us the things given that we will forever 'hold' in our hearts,, the nuture, love, and memories. Very Beautiful poem Emile,, so good to see you post.
Love, Christine

What beautiful images your words conjure up in my mind, Emile. I too had wise and loving grandmas that taught me much, and that I've retained in my Memory Bank, which, fortunately is very good and active to this day. I so enjoy the final two lines, and would add "sometimes an aroma...", as it was at the side of boths grandmas that I learned to cook, beginning at age 3...on step stools :o)
Blessings and Love ~~ Micke

"When Life Responds" is a warm and caring poem. It seems that many of us remember experiences with "grandma" more than anyone else. I recall grandma in the kitchen, passing out hot biscuits to us kids. We'd poke a finger in the edge of them and fill the hole with sugar cane syrup. Thanks for the memory.

How beautiful are your words Emile as you take us to another time in our life and make us realize the important things. Thank you for sharing.

Newfie Hugs, Rose

It makes me thing of a little boy playing alone with his marbles wishing he had a friend.
