One Moment

By Linda Anne McGrath

Life begins, joy exceeds
a heart stops beating
leaving souls to bleed
In one moment.

An infant shoot bursts forth from fertile ground
flowers unfold without a sound
In one moment.

Earth shudders the weight of a slaughtered tree
creatures and birds for their life do flee
In one moment.
Words whispered sacred yet broken
haunted memories of some left unspoken
In one moment


Linda McGrath is a 48 year old mum. She lives in QLD, Australia with her 2 daughters.
