POETRY By Fr. Pedro Arrupe, S.J.

Fall in Love – Nothing is more practical than finding God, than falling in love in a quiet absolute, final way.  What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything.

It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, whom you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.

Fall in Love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.

Poem by Rita A. Simmons

We are the Sign

The Word is lost

and cannot be retrieved

like a prophet tossed

into a warring sea

then swallowed whole

by an enormous fish

that swims away

and leaves no trace.

The keystone gone,

we’re crushed and caught.

We breathe the dust

the absence brings.

No other way to know the cost.

How can we live

if God’s cast off?

Yet we’re alive

and so remain.

This sign He gives

to an evil age.

Be my colouring bud

Splash me with your golden rays

Of mischief and excitement

Splash me with your magical hues

Layers of colors brightens my Soul

Unfurl your tender pastels of love

Like a rainbow in the blue skies

Spreading true joy and happiness

Sending purple ripples to gleam and smile

Sunflowers and daffodils that shines so bright

Lavenders and daisies that add to their fragrances

Colouring our world with beauty

Embracing brilliant rays of colours

As sweetest hearts fall in love

With gorgeous colours of vibrancy

Let us splash ourselves lavishly

Drown in the colours of Joyfulness

Come one and all with tiny steps

We shall make our own music

On pretty tips of blossoms lips

And make our world a better place to live…………………..

In my half-torn pockets

I hide overflowing waves

Of little chits in different colours

Reds, greens, yellows or blues

Of a smiley face full of joy

As I love to see happy smiles

On beautiful faces

That have forgotten to smile

And pass it on to anystranger

I come across on the street

With a handshake or a hug

Or stick it on someone’s car,

A bus, a gift box or a doorknob

People do frown in the beginning

As they think who is this strangeman

Is he a robber or a madcap out to kill us?

But as soon as they open the little chit

And see the smiley face full of joy

They give me a beaming smile

That brightens them up

Laughing at my little silly trick

And in return I feel so happy

Like I am in a carnival, on top of the World
