Posts Tagged ‘Still Pond’

I would like to share today 2 poems that I wrote last year and posted in March.  They are a duet or I call them a “poetic couplet.”  They are meant to be read together as they express my love for Spirit.

Still Pond

It is in the whisper of the willow that I hear your words;
And in the reflection of the water that I see your face.
The ripples that dance across still pond
Reveal our Divine bond.
As I gaze into the sky I see you winking back at me.
You who has painted sun and clouds so perfectly,
Bathed in warmth of a luminous light,
From within I know all things are aright. .
It is at this moment that I am one with Thee.
It is my knowing that all you do is for the love of me.
Today I kneel in my garden that blooms.
With outstretch arms I embrace my Heavenly Groom.
It is with my words that you so graciously gave,
I now speak this poem in loving praise.

Dance In The Night

Sitting in Darkness I feel you running through my hair,

Like fingers twirling with an intimate loving care.

I look into your eyes as I watch the sparkling of the stars.

And feel your essence consume me.

As I listen to your words in rhythm of the chimes,

I settle into the silence feeling our love entwined.

The crickets are humming a love song so sweet.

I slowly rise to my feet.

You take my hand as we dance to their song.

Swaying and moving me along.

You bring me deep into your essence of life,

It is there I meld in a blissful delight.

It is a dance we have performed so often before,

And in this moment Lord our divine love is eternally adorn.

I had a wonderful visit from my dear friend Peter.   He has an incredible gift of hearing and seeing patterns where the average soul does not.   Thank you Peter for your kind support and editorial assistance.  Together we smoothed out the bumps in this poem that was driving me crazy.

It has been interesting that I have had some people who love this poem and the next poem “Dance in the Night” and others who feel very uncomfortabe with God as a lover as described in both of these poems.  On Sunday July 8, 2012 I attened a service at Temenos Church at Broad Run in West Chester PA  and was delighte to hear and read the Unison Benediction,  “The unfathomable mystery of God is that God is a lover who wants to be loved.  The one who created us is waiting for our response to the love that gave us our being.  God not only says, ‘You are my Beloved’ God also asks, “Do you love me?” and offers us countless chances to say, “Yes.”  Henri J.M.
