A Flower Was Offered To Me


This poem is written from the viewpoint of the Goddess who has received an offering from a young child, a flower placed at the feet of Her idol in the temple. 

A flower was offered to me
With folded hands she stood there
A little child but barely three
Eyes shut in sincere prayer

She spoke such simple words
Her heart so full of faith
The plea in love I heard
To change someone's fate

Though destiny has a different path
How could I break her soul
Compassion filled my heavy heart
While the young one did extol

What is inevitably written 
Even Goddess cannot change
But perhaps grant a short reprieve 
Within Divinity's allowed range

I took the flower in my hands
And blessings did bestow
I broke those firm destiny bands
And altered that life's flow.

~x~


I believe that what is destined is inevitable, but I also hope that God and Goddess can grant us a reprieve, a slight change in our path if we ask with sincerity, with no agenda, with love and faith and with the innocence of a child.

Joy

I searched for joy in places near and far
I left no stone unturned
But joy it ran like a speeding car
And all my efforts spurned

I thought I'd find it in my things
In exciting adventures
In all the things that shine and bling
In fortune fame and treasure

Perhaps I'd trap it in a Winter drift 
Or in February, May or September
Maybe it will be a gift
I get in a day in October

The more I tried, the more I failed
For joy could not be caught
I shouted loud and cajoled and hailed
Seemed like with me it fought

One day I left that battle field
And blended in with nature
With no expectation of any yield
Or fear of any failure

And then I sensed it all around
Joy always exists
It's not a thing that can be found
Within you it just is.

A Letter to Classmates

Last Sunday my school classmate passed away suddenly. He was much loved and will be missed by all his classmates.

I wrote a poem for him and for my classmates who are shocked and saddened by his tragic death. Sharing here with all of you.

When the Great Spirit in the sky
Called me back to my heavenly home
I found my wings to soar and fly
And through the cosmos roam

The melody that enticed my soul
And coaxed me leave my wondrous Earth
Led me to Him and made me whole
And showed me all my worth

I journeyed through life upon the sea
I laughed and sang and danced
But know that now I'm home and free
Life was just a moment that I glanced

My friends and loves I left behind
Someday again we'll meet
For in that great heaven you will find
A classroom with our seats.

R.I.P dear friend xoxo

Tranquility

For a few hushed moments. I sat in solitude
Watching majestic mountains, Giving gratitude

The silence so refreshing, Quietening the mind
My soul nourishing, Answers I could find

In meditative Zenning, Perhaps a connection I did make
A spark of self healing, In a Divinely loving state

I liked that quiet moment, When serenity prevailed
Tranquility so potent, Renewal it entailed

But did it really happen, Did I reach that heavenly state
Was it something I imagined, Regardless I celebrate

~x~

Written for:
Midweek Motif - Tranquility (poem to be limited to 3-17 lines in any form)
With Real Toads - Celebrate something that never happened. In my poem the "never happened" is more a question of did it really happen or did I imagine it.

If I Could Walk With Angels

Written for:
Animation with Midweek Motif
Artistic Impressions (photo prompt) with Real Toads


If I could walk with Angels
I wonder what I'd see
Dwellings made of fluffy clouds
Or shimmering cities in the sea
Perhaps flowers glowing in meadows
With prancing Unicorns
A crystal lake with rainbow lights
And golden baby fawns

If I could dance with Angels
We'd be flying in the skies
Through cities made of pretty gems
Through stars like twinkling eyes
We'd leave a trail of neon lights
And sparkling diamond bands
And swirls of jewelled moonbeams
Through mystical cosmic lands

Perhaps I walk with Angels
Each and every day
Perhaps they also dance with me
And speak and sing and play 
When life takes me through the woods
With falling leaves that startle
With Angel swish trees change to lollipops
And luck comes through a feng shui turtle

I wonder what they look like
Perhaps like you and me
Or the face I saw upon a board
Or like the sweet child running free
I know I walk with Angels
And dance and sing and play
And when I hear the swish of wings
I know they are here to stay.
