A Different Perspective.

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Asheville 1031 Realty 209970

As a REALTOR, seems to me that getting inside a different perspective (that of the client) is a valuable skill... Let me know what you think...as in this verse written on Memorial Day.

I remember today the young people.
For thousands of years they have gone off to war,
surrendered their lives for  the advantage of others,
And have not wavered on the way.

I think about the human drama-  where we fit in.
I wonder what would happen if we could find the place, in all of this,
where stillness flows as it does when we sing at the altar,
as it does when twilight settles in.

Where is that stillness that comes from open hearts,
that stillness that dissolves the rage and the clatter?
Where is that stillness that drowns out the sounds of battle,
keeps the lives of sons and daughters safe?

If only we could turn to the great trees,
so alive as they stretch to greet the light before the coming winter days,
ask them to reveal the secret of quietude, 
let their whisper run through the pounding voices of war,

so that within the angry chant, the life roots of energy might appear
as an infant, and breathe, and love,
and let each one of us see,
that the blood we shed belongs to all of us...........
