per amica silentia lunae

Lineaments of Grace

The eye may see these subtle marks
But it takes a soul, a heart and mind
Entwined, to perceive- know, feel,
Limn these moments on the delicate
Enduring leaves of the books we
Unknowing, unwilling write, each
Waking breath of the cycling arc
We trace, bright and dark, against
The storm of the world. Mere sight
Loses these sparks, jumbled in dross;
Must fail to find wonder in the ordinary.
What jumps the gap, what mates meaning
To coincidence- call it vision.

Being picky: Put an apostrophe before "Grave". Otherwise it looks you're referring to a hole in the ground where a person is buried. And that doesn't really flow.

Point taken. Thanks!

But the apostrophe thing bothered me so I did something else...
