A Heavenly Night of Beauty
It is a warm night with a cool breeze –
The air is filled with the scent of newly cut grass.
In the sky the moon is aglow with light flowing into
The darkened sky and lighting up the heavens.
Many stars in the sky are twinkling and seem to
be dancing in a waltz of joy.
Clouds are lazily floating across the sky
Creating an unreal luminous veil as they
Drift towards an unknown destination. We
Gaze at the heavens, and let our senses
Beguile us into a dreamy state of mind.
The night has caressed us with its touch to the
Senses. We embrace this night of beauty and
It will remain in our dreams forever.
Hearts That Are Broken
Sadness may fill a heart with longing —
Longing for the sound of a baby’s laughter
Or the sweet chirping of a bird outside your window.
Sounds of nature bring a pleasant relief to a
Heart that is feeling so alone.
One’s heart is so entwined within our emotions
And we need to let the purity of nature
Fill us with joy as we immerse ourselves in the
Gifts of nature’s beauty.
Then our heart will know the peace that comes
With becoming a part of nature’s delight.
What is the use and Who Cares
A dark winged bird flew to me
With a stark and frightening message.
My precious was leaving me and a
Knife tore through my soul.
My emotions became that of anger,
Jealously and hopelessness.
Where do I go and what will become of me.
My days became those of despair and melancholy.
My nights are sleepless and my mind goes crazy.
In all this despair, I began to want to end this agony.
My thoughts are still with this idea and one of these
Days, I will be no more.
Where do we go
There is a saying about “any port in a storm”.
When our lives become like the rough undulating
Waves of an ocean—
We try to smooth our own waters of
Frightening peril and dangerous moments.
We cry out into the darkness surrounding us
Because we don’t know the way.
Suddenly we see a light illuminating this
Darkness. We begin to realize that we
Have found our port in the storm.
Our faith in that light has brought
Us safely home.
