Euphony

Posted on

 

the world is in our hands

is it not a gift?

a blank sheet

to compose symphonies

of grace,

one cosmic chorus

born of our own untainted hearts?

let us not be mute

but join in songs of light

when evil seeps

through cracks

 

 

A quadrille for dVerse Poets Pub.

De has given us the word “crack” to incorporate into our 44 word poems. Join us!

Out of Darkness

 

Clouds speak in silhouettes

Embellished by the gift of light

Sunbeams stretch to infinity

Trees soak in the serenity

When sapphire skies mimic

More than a glimmer of hope

 

Peace – Haiku

peace

 

peace prevails on trails

sunbeams stretch to stifle darkness

silence speaks volumes

 

 


 

A beautiful place to find peace…

Where The Sun Shines

Posted on

This is where the sun shines
In lower ground
On weeds and weary souls
We’ve all but given up on

Beacons of hope
Brilliantly borrowed from
Selfish fools unable to
See the light

This is where the sun shines
On shattered hearts
Wide open to receive
The greatest gold of all

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light

Rest in Peace, Nelson Mandela

September 2011 741

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

‘A Return to Love” (1992) by Marianne Williamson

Missing Hope

Posted on

DSCF2180

Somehow the sun

Sneaks in

Unnoticed, even shunned

By those not ready

For the flicker

Of a flame already snuffed

So many times

By paralyzed thoughts

Of reality known

And dreams departed

Somehow the sun

Slips gently

Making contact, though rejected

By hearts still twisted

With past and pain

Blocking rays, restricting light

As life gives moments

Short yet sweet

To collect and keep

Or resist and release
