ANCIENT MANDALA

HAIBUN

A favorite habit of mine is to peruse the infinite gallery of pictures I save for writing.  Thank God, I had saved this ‘rose quilt’ from Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral, now in smoldering ruins waiting to be restored which experts say will take at least 5 years.  Generations have viewed this spiritual awakening, as I have, to gain knowledge from above from within.

Pattern of infinity

Scintillating body and soul

Discovering self

‘Hey
beautiful life

Be
gentle on yourself’

Do not
be harsh

Like
the blasting winds

That hurt us no end

Release the morass of mistakes

Flounder
not in regrets

No
stranger are you among us

‘Hey
beautiful life

Be
gentle on yourself’

Caress
your tender leaves

That
quiver in the sun’s glory

Unfurl
your beauty as fragrances

Let
our hearts sing love’s pleasure

Your
mysteries are unfathomable

It is
way beyond our reach

‘Hey beautiful
Life

Be
gentle on yourself’

The
noontide is upon us

Take a
moment of rest upon the wind

Sing sweetly
in your gentle voice

Stretch
your hands to gather us

Let
your bending in the Mysterious hand

Be for happiness and joy…………..

Thank you so much my beautiful friend Zaza from scribesforlove.blog who always encourages me to extend her wonderful Haikus into a poem.
