JOAN NOELDECHEN, POET & AUTHOR

A SELECTION OF POEMS 
BY JOAN NOELDECHEN




The First Thought

In the dawning moments
of each day
my heart fills with gratitude:
thank you God
for my space.





Destination

No one knows
where they are going.
We only know
we're on a journey
to our own true selves.






Unconditional Dividends
I remember
to embrace
love
in all its forms,
especially
when
I forget love
always
flows back to me
after the giving time
falls away.


THE PROMISE

A plot of earth
waits for me
to plant my seeds
before the sun.
The garden calls
to my heart,
as I play joyfully
in the soil,
dreaming of
their sweet flowering.


The Inner Flame

I am not  more than
a wisp
      of
smoke
to the world,
but
to God
I am a flame of hope and promise
in a darkened room.
