Upon your last exhalation I hovered

over your empty beautiful vessel

while the warmth of your spirit cloaked me as a

heavy woolen blanket. Our last

communication of love will remain in

existence within the very fibers

that constitute this being of whom you have

invested so many of your

days here upon this dusty soil. Our last

earthly consumption, to drink of your love,

your grace, your prayers. A spirit which has reached the

heavens on high yet continues

to linger within my soul. I aspire, hope

to walk that path destined eternally

Hope

Cares not

If his load to bear

Is heavier than yours

He will continue on

Hope

does not mind

if you have no desire

to hold his hand

He will be there

For you

Always at your side

Just in case

 And if you must

Discard him

Today

You will find

His tears

Having fallen

So delicately

Upon all which has been

Blanketed by darkness

 For he knows what belongs

To each new day

And whatsoever direction

You choose

For your life

He will be there

For you

Lies hope in the

Everlasting truth

To keep your eyes upon the page

Your heart turned toward heaven

As a learned and wise old sage

Who, pray tell, will revel in?

It is not so much the example of others we imitate as the reflection of ourselves in their eyes and the echo of ourselves in their own words. ~Eric Hoffer

Your heart turned toward heaven

Within, your mind bringing beauty

Who, pray tell, will revel in?

Coming close, touching, to see

Within, your mind bringing beauty

Your fingerprints on our world

Coming close, touching, to see

Interior Radiance

Your fingerprints on our world

What are you made of Soul, divine?

Interior Radiance

In nature, pleasantries benign

What are you made of Soul, divine?

Gilt-edged sheaths, Red letters speaking

In nature, pleasantries benign

While roots lie in the deep, dark, earth

Gilt-edged sheaths, Red letters speaking

Where are you? Can you hear the sound?

While roots lie in the deep, dark, earth

I, too, went far away at times

Where are you? Can you hear the sound?

Closer. Come closer. Listen.

I, too, went far away at times

He did what he did, forgiven.

Closer. Come closer. Listen.

Mercy, grace, for you, ex gratia

He did what he did, forgiven.

From favour, each is as they are

Mercy, grace, for you, ex gratia

Significant Loyalty

From favour, each is as they are

Honey rendered from the bloom

Significant Loyalty

As a learned and wise old sage

Honey rendered from the bloom

To keep your eyes upon the page

At the conclusion of the world celebrating Earth Day, I thought it might be nice to spend a moment pondering the fragrance of heaven…

The fragrance of heaven fills the air

Like rose petals falling from the sky.

The sweet smell of spring

Brings new life to your soul

With gifts from God

That are forever and true.

Unlike the manna of long ago,

That was given only for the moment,

Any abundance would sour and rot,

These gifts are plenty

Enjoy until your heart and soul and mind

Are completely content

Then enjoy even more

There is an endless supply

You can have for yourself

With plenty to offer

Your family, friends, and guests

Who knock upon your door.

Fill yourself with love

Fill your walk with joy

And your mind with an abundance of peace.

Fill your vision with patience

Fill your hands with kindness

And your deeds with plenty of goodness.

Fill your heart with faithfulness

Fill your words with gentleness

And your entire being with self-control.

The breath of God is upon you

Like freshly fallen rain

Upon the earth of old

To bring new life

New blossoms, new fruit

For all and all to enjoy.

Come and dine with the King

And eat like a child whose eyes are too big for their need

For what is left

Will never, ever go to waste

Let the juice of the fruit

Run down your chin

And down your arms

Fret not when it stains your clothes.

When others look upon you

They will know where you dine

They will know at what table you eat

They will know they can join you

These gifts are plenty

Enjoy until your heart and soul and mind

Are completely content

Then enjoy even more

There is an endless supply

You can have for yourself

With plenty to offer

Your family, friends and guests

Who knock upon your door.

Enjoy the fragrance of heaven

That fills the very air that you breathe

Nourish yourself with fruit from above

Always ripe and ready for you

Wonderful, beautiful gifts from God,

Forever, eternal, and true.

But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal precession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him. For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life. And who is equal to such a task? Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, like men sent from God.   2 Corinthians 14-17 Thompson Chain-Reference Bible NIV

Hatred lies behind me

Kindness surrounds me.

Violence tries to hold my hand

My hands are grasping Love and Peace.

Gossip would like me to lend an ear

I listen to Forgiveness.

Dissension shows me many things

I see through the eyes of Compassion.

Laziness calls out my name

Hard Work is my friend.

Pride knocks on my door

I welcome in Humility.

Shouting yells at me

I speak with Gentleness.

Foolishness seeks me out

Wisdom is whom I search for.

Lying offers me a drink

I thirst only for Truth.

Death tries to grab me

I am in the palm of His Hand.

As one runs the path

Swiftly and grandly in peace

Embarking on love.

Each and every one of us must embark on the path of discovery, the path of truth. We are responsible for our hopes and our dreams to come to fulfillment. What are you searching for? What our your longing desires? Believe in yourself. Believe in the beauty that defines you. You are beautiful.
