Vision's Journey - a poem by Brian Snell

Written by Ryman Healthcare
on April 21, 2020

I have spent

This week

With creative,

Innovative,

Sensitive people

All with one desire:

To reach higher

Than before:

Even to deserve an encore.

           ……….

Somewhat orchestrated

By the sweet Claire

Who was there

With ‘phone and text

Never at rest.

            ……...

Then Melanie –

Asking  the questions,

But always knowing

That meaning was flowing

Through her direction.

            ……….

So I have been blessed

But humbled,

Inspired,

Yet comfortable

With such creators

In the heat,

In the cold,

In the inconvenient settings:  

Even the dangerous settings;

With such careful steppings,

To see their devotion

To their ultimate ambition—

Their creative vision.
