Today's Beautiful Gem: "Images of Life" by Ernest Hemingway

"Dying was nothing
and he had no picture of it
nor fear of it in his mind.
But living was a field of grain
blowing in the wind
on the side of a hill.
Living was a hawk in the sky.
Living was an earthen jar of water
and the chaff blowing.
Living was a horse between your legs
and a carbine under one leg
and a hill and a valley
and a stream with trees along it
and the far side of the valley
and the hills beyond."

Om Santih! Peace! - J. K. Mohana Rao
