Analysis of Palm of God

Heather Lydia Thornhill 1981 (Manchester)

The light of peace came to the childs soul
And read its tiny palm with their life whole
They looked at the further possibilities
The ones they might challenge against the breeze
Then remembered the akash far back in Gods soul
And how many had surprised them to reach Gods goal
The child soul smiled as they both knew
the profundity of what their lives would do
I match my energy to thine said The light of peace in that purest of shrine.
