Soul Substance


Soul Substance
©2018 Susan Noyes Anderson

The spirit finds home
inside warm flesh and bone,
taking ownership,
giving direction.
Should the formula fail, 
appetite will prevail,
driving action
without due reflection.

More blessings abound
when the nexus is found.
Spirit breathes, and
the body is whole.
Sacredness is defined
as the two are combined
in God's greatest creation:
the soul.

How beautifully stated! Even the problem "Should the formula fail,
appetite will prevail," is succinctly included so you can lead
up to the rousing conclusion. So true!
