Whispering Praises to Love

I watch with a heavenly silence; see the rays

Of sunlight shimmering through the woods.

The verdant earth, mirrors a trail of shadowy

Trees and a residual trace of auburn.

The verdure of the foliage and surroundings...

The melody from the chirping of starlings, speak

To me of reverence. I gaze at the frolicking of

Squirrels, flooding my soul with tranquillity.

The Light of beauty spreads, like a canopy,

Covering the nakedness of the forest.

The tanned pines stand tall in their majesty,

Heralding the advent of summer.

An opalescent sky peeps through, as my heart

Dances with serenity, whispering praises to Love.

The Wonder Of Nature And The Miracle Of Creation

Above the undulating hills, white clouds disperse.

The vastness of a royal blue peeps though, blanketing

The plains with its splendour. My soul touches the breath

Of meandering streams, kissing the lushness of nature.

The trees rise to the beauty of surroundings;

Paying homage to their verdure and fertility.

‘pon distant trails I walk my dog, my soul soaring

On tomorrows, embracing the crest of the rising sun.

The valley runs deep –aqua-marine stillness,

Replacing my comedy of shadows. Green foliage,

Ever-anew, whispers to my emotions, of the solace

Of perennial Silence, tugging at the pulse of my Being.

I sit quietly with Maggie, gleefully wagging her tail,

While we both offer gratitude, for the miracle of Creation.

Your Sweet Kiss is Everything!

" Looking at the stars, the moon ... the

Perennial galaxies are not enough.

I gaze at Your silhouette, Your cheeks ... the allure of your smile.

I feel the redolence of Your breath; the rapture with which

You envelop my soul. It is only then I know,

That by obtaining Thy sweet kiss, I obtain everything!."
