I woke up with an urge this morning
to tell you what you already know –
while madness may afflict the planet
and troubles afflict the weary soul
my love for you never dissipates,
every day it is born awake.
Like a bird in flight, soaring free,
your scented light surges through me.
Won’t you hold my
hand a little while
in this sea of plenty?
Won’t you stroke my
heart with gentleness
and watch the flowers bloom?
Won’t you walk with
me without chains or ropes
and kiss the world awake?
Won’t you cradle my
head and glimpse the sun
woo the morning dew?
Won’t you feast on liberty
and let your senses
swell in gaiety?
Won’t you lose yourself
in the wholesome flow,
bathed in wonderment?
Won’t you be a star
near and afar
on this burnished path?
Like the mist clearing on a summer morn,
You wend your way, silky-smooth, newly-born,
The dew shimmering above the thorn
And all is ablaze.
Like the world waking up in a hum of sound,
Your voice vibrates across the sun-drenched ground,
Terror’s chains broken, forever unbound
And here I stand, amazed.
By the light of the falls
I caught my breath, enthralled
When out of the flow there sprung
And hung a shimmering rainbow.
How moments flash with meaning.
The gifts that course like blessings.
And always the heart is leaning
Towards the source, caressing.
Isn’t life beautiful when we stand back and reflect upon the beauty of it all? Isn’t life brimming with possibility when we throw away our fears? Isn’t life magical when we realise the blessings we have? Isn’t life exquisite when we raise a cup to the wonder of now? Isn’t life majestic when we dance alone or with friends? Isn’t life resplendent when we drink in the view from the top of a mountain? Isn’t life sublime when we create splendour out of chaos? Isn’t life swell when we give with unfettered joy? Isn’t life grand when we take the hand of someone we love and look at the innumerable stars? Isn’t life great? Isn’t life sweet? Isn’t life beautiful?
Rapt in wonder,
Your every word.
An ardent voice
I humbly succumb.
