BEAUTY OF CREATION

WISHING HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BELOVED CHRISTOPHER

An anonymous translation of a Latin poem by Augustine of Hippo

The Beauty of Creation

Question the beauty of the earth,

the beauty of the sea,

the beauty of the wide air around you,

the beauty of the sky; question the order of the stars,

the sun whose brightness lights the days,

the moon whose splendor softens the gloom of night;

question the living creatures that move in the waters,

that roam upon the earth,

that fly through the air;

the spirit that lies hidden,

the matter that is manifest;

the visible things that ruled,

the invisible things that rule them; question all these.

They will answer you:  “Behold and see, we are beautiful.”

Their beauty is their confession to God

Who made these beautiful changing things,

if not one who is beautiful and changes not?

…with my eternal love, mom…

They used to flow through me

Our love poems

I used to show them&

Some readers used to know them

And in the flow of them

Was the beat of a breathing heart

A wind in my sail that ceased to prevail

From this numbness comes a call

An outpouring that says it all

Pins and needle’s final fall

Come life

Come love

Come creative chest

My treasure

Flow and form our riverbed

Where streams&beams of love

Move us in stillness

Living out a poet’s dream

Gone forever silent scream

A RE-BLOG POST – Duties of the Soul

The soul is one of my favored topics to write about and the quote is perfect to compliment this poem–a perfect re-blog moment–hope you will like this.

DarylMadden

For matters of the soul
Things that we can do
Let us make it simple
Duties, there are two

The first is to wonder
Open to surprise
To be filled with awe
Unseen and with our eyes

Second, is to gently
Let go and let be
For our God is sovereign
Place our trust in He

Always taking pleasure
In gifts that He provides
Dwelling in the Spirit
In Him let us reside

The soul must perform two duties. The one is we must reverently wonder and be surprised; the other is that must gently let go and let be always taking pleasure in God.
~Julian of Norwich~

Dedicated to a courageous friend that has been willing to go through fear with me. Thank you https://scribeforlove.wordpress.com/

Beyond all that is vain

Behold, a pearl is found

Bestowed upon us

Behind us every step

Beloved in his hands

Bees appease

Breathing peace

Breakthrough through and through

Breaking new ground

Bonding friendship found

Benign

Forever kind ♡ ♡

A RE-BLOG POST- I Am From…………..

Bravo! Kamal, your first I AM poem is superb!

Boundless Blessings by Kamal

Image result for images of i am from

I
AM FROM

The
place where there is only Love

There
is no place to Hate

Nor
Blame anyone or anybody

Cause
all is Me

There
is no one but Me

I am the Universe, The Illusion, The Reality

When my EGOIC small ‘i’

That I think is Me

Is entrenched in my Soul

And keeps on buzzing in my mind

Needless
thoughts of selfishness

Maya
playing havoc at every turn

Coming
and going a never ending game

Will
after endlessness infinities

Realize
the Real ‘I’

Will
I the Soul then merge with

The
Real ‘I AM’ from Eternity

Where
in Reality, ‘I WAS,

I
AM AND ALWAYS WILL BE’

Eternal, Formless, Love and Bliss………………
