‘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.

OUT OF PAIN

Blood Flowers Postcard by Elizabeth Vanduine

Your Suffering Is Not In Vain – Poem

Precious – Dare to dream beyond illness

Your song still needs to be heard

You leave us holy tracks

Trust your heart!

Heaven will spin you out of pain

*

I’m offering this poem to all who are being challenged with ill health including Chris, Vera, Beverly and Nora Linda.

KALEIDOSCOPE

POETIC THOUGHT

Kaleidoscope, be my crimson arch of prayers

be my yellow circles of hope

rejoicing warmly in the rainbow.

*

Scottish David Brewster invented kaleidoscopes in 1816 as instruments to polarize optics with properties of light.  He named this technique from Greek words meaning ‘beautiful form watcher.’

 

‘THE MANY WINES’

Persian Poetry on Wine by Rumi

The Many Wines

God has given us a dark wine so potent that, drinking it, we leave the two worlds.

God has made sleep so that it erases every thought.

There are thousands of wines that can take over our minds.

Don’t think all ecstasies are the same!

Jesus was lost in his love for God.  His donkey was drunk with barley.

Drink from the presence of saints, not from those other jars.

Every object, every being, is a jar full of delight.

Be a connoisseur, and taste with caution.

Any wine will get you high.  Judge like a king, and choose the purest.

The ones unadulterated with fears, or some urgency about “what’s needed.”

Drink the wine that moves you as a camel moves when it’s been untied

and is just ambling about.

Rumi

 

MIGHTY DANDELION

The Dandelion – Art by Janie Olsen

One of my favored things to do in summer is whiff freshly cut grass, but after reading this delightful poem, I will stop and gaze at the dandelions before I mow them down.

The Dandelion by Vachel Lindsay

O dandelion, rich and haughty,

King of village flowers!

Each day is coronation time.

You have no humble hours.

I like to see you bring a troop

To beat the blue-grass spears.

To scorn the lawnmower that would be

Like fate’s triumphant shears,

Your yellow heads are cut away,

It seems your reign is o’er.

By noon you raise a sea of stars

More golden than before.

*

Thank you, Christopher, for sharing this wonderful poem and art piece

 

A RE-BLOG POST – I Choose Joy……….

Dear Kamal, I am amazed by this joyous poem coming from one of my Haiku – you couldn’t have said it better!

Sincerely, your scribe for love

Boundless Blessings by Kamal

A beautiful Haiku on “I Choose Joy” written by my wonderful friend, Zaza from scribeforlove.blog who always inspires me with her imaginative words. We both have joined these verses together and I have penned few more words as a lovely poem on this theme. Thank you always Zaza:

I choose Joy

AsI stand unshaken

In the
midst of chaos

Oh!
Joy such a pleasure

To
have you around me

Soaking
me in your Joyfulness

Sunshine
reflected in my hair

Singing
along horizon’s mist

In
wonder and reverence

I am
joyful and happy

Dancing
in my pretty blue shoes

Flirting
with the shadows of love

Stir
me up with laughter

Your
surge in me is bursting

Propelling
me to write

Verses
of my delightful feelings

Filling
my book with raptures

And I
stand unshaken

As I
choose U, my Joy

Letting
you speak words

Of liveliness in my heart’s core
