A RE-BLOG POST Unfolding the Rose……..

That Rumi touches our hearts together is remarkable, and so I must re-blog it here to share this lovely poem.

Unfolding the Rose

I came across this beautiful poem by 13th century Sufi Poet – Jalaluddin Rumi.  I would love to share it on my blog.  The poem goes like this:

It is only a tiny rosebud

A flower of God’s design

But I cannot unfold the petals

With these clumsy hands of mine

The secret of unfolding flowers

Is not known to such as I

God opens this flower so sweetly

When in my hands they fade and die

If I cannot unfold a rosebud

This flower of God’s design

Then how can I think I have wisdom

To unfold this life of mine?

So, I’ll trust in Him for His leading

Each moment of every day

I will look to Him for His guidance

Each step of the pilgrim way

The pathway that lies before me

Only my Heavenly Father knows

I’ll trust Him to unfold the moments

LOVE IS IN THE AIR

Creation by Monique van Wyk

If you keep your eyes on the heavens, there you will find Love planted everywhere.

Poem by Jamie Lash

Stay, stay, I love you this way.

Resting in My Love, and hearing from above.

Stay, stay, I love you this way.

There’s more that I have yet to say.

On this happy note, I wish to congratulate everyone who will engage in Love through…

Baptism, Marriage, Anniversary, Birthday and Graduation!

…This month and throughout the year…

A SERENE POEM

POETRY By Father Elias Friedman, OCD

Doves in the Courtyard

“They stop breathing, as they eye

my shadow, this side the window-pane,

though I meant real well by them,

scattering good bread and meal.

“I leave their world to start my day,

they murmuring mild antiphons,

to turn to man’s, of groan and grief

and healings of the Holy Spirit.”

These doves replicate the quails that feed early before the sun rises on the back deck, then quickly take flight as they feel my presence.

SURPRISE WITH LOVE

POETRY

“Each morn through dazzled window

Anew, the sun above

In bursting, blazing splendor

Surprise me with your love.

“Descending over chaos

An eagle, then a dove

Forth-bringing, powering, filling

Surprise me with your love.

For sunburst, friendship, mercy

In life’s design now wove–

Fresh virgin gifts forever new–

Surprise me with your love.

When my life is done

I’ll wend my way above

Sin-scarred and empty-handed, then

Surprise me with your love.”

–Father James Geoghegan, OCD

“Only for today, I will be happy in the certainty that I was created to be happy, not only in the other world but also in this one.”

–The Decalogue, Pope John XXIII

DOWN THE PURPLE LANE- EMBELLISHED

This post is wonderfully embellished by Kamal’s comment to this poem.

“I am the One you are always searching, I am Love and Light in all its magical Oneness.”

POETRY

The trail is bleak on both sides

I follow the light in the purple sky

Night creatures advance on me like nightmares, but keep walking.

Things invisible float above me

Then I hear a whisper, come my child

be still and revel in my light.
