Fragrance of Roses

Pure white petals

Laced with a dash of pink

Twirling in the golden rays

Blushing rosy at the kisses

From the morning sun

Your perfume intoxicating

Draw in bees and butterflies

Mesmerized by your fragrance and beauty

Even the glorious sun cannot resist

Showering his sparkles on you

A Sunlit Morning

It is a glorious morning. After a spell of refreshing rain during the past few weeks, it feels wonderful to see the bright and cheerful face of the sun. I can hear the soft flutter of wings as the birds, in their multitude of colors, fly past my window into the lovely blue sky. The white puffs of clouds remind me of vanilla ice cream and cotton candy.

Nature comes alive in all its vibrance as the sun rises and its warm rays touch all things living and non-living alike, urging them to fulfill their purpose to the best of their ability as if it was their last day on mother earth. Young sparrows chirp in their nests while being fed as if in gratitude for life, trying hard each day to strengthen their wings to lift off in flight.

The trees and little plants look so tranquil in the fresh morning air, gently swaying in the soft breeze. Drops of dew on their lush green leaves shine like diamonds as sunlight kisses them tenderly. They seem to be drawn to the sun as if in love with the life-giving golden light, propelling their happy, smiling faces upwards to grow, blossom and flourish for their Creator.

Holding On To Serendipity

The flowers and birds seemed drawn to her
She looked so pure and lovely

Twirling with happiness
In the meadows
Free under the blue sky
Sunlight kissing her face

She was hugging the wind
Arms open wide
Taking in the perfume of wild daisies and poppies
Blooming in profusion around her

I stood watching her face overflow with deep content
I’d planned our surprise date with nature
Knowing full well she’d be thrilled

This gentle yet strong woman
Had chosen to give her fierce loyalty and love to me

All I want is to cherish and protect her
Keep her close inside my arms

She brought out the best in me
Made me want to overcome my darkness
She was my light

Her eyes sparkling
Hair dancing in the sunshine
She walked towards me

My heart leapt
I fervently wished I was the gentle breeze
That caressed and touched her face forever

The Ocean and the Seashore – A Love Beyond Time

Ours is a tale of love as old as creation.

For you are the Ocean and I am the Seashore.

The music of our joy, our song besprinkled,

In seashells across the earth.

The waves and the sand merge together for eternity. The Ocean returns after a weary trip round the world into the arms of his beloved Seashore, who waits earnestly and patiently for him to come home to her. Their union brings happiness to their human children as they frolic and play in the dancing, lapping, majestic waves and bury their feet in the warm, healing sands.

The Ocean and the Seashore are inseparable. Without boundaries, they blend and mix, entwine in such harmony that it is unfathomable where the Ocean ends and the Seashore begins.

Thus are you and I joined together forever. Sure as the sun that bounces golden above the waters.

Sacred is the place where I met you and you professed that Your love for me “is as vast as the sea, the ocean that spans this earth” and I was overcome and conceded, “You have me that loves you forever”. I saw your face light up in the most beautiful smile of thrill and contentment that my heart melted.

I rest my head on your shoulder, sitting beside you in the soft sand and you hold my fingers in yours. As I watch the blue waters stretch out to the sun and the endless sky change colours, I can’t but feel at peace with nature and with myself.

Your Eyes

My heart misses a beat

As she approaches me

Evening sunlight breaking through her hair

We stand there and talk

I look at her

Our eyes meet, get locked into each other

And the world stops spinning around us

Those few seconds feel like an eternity

Everything around us dissolves

Nothing exists but she and I, our eyes gazing steadily into each other

We can’t look away

Lose ourselves into each other in those few moments

The depth of her eyes, unfathomably deep

The way they looked back at me

Could consume universes

Our eyes glimpsed, pierced, looked into each others’ souls

We recognized each other from a bond beyond time

This could blossom

Into one of the deepest, most profound bonds ever

Greenhouse, My Muse

I sit under the pleasant sunshine

Dancing rays sparkling down my being

Washing and bathing me in its splendor

 

Hugged by lush greenery

At my perch in a greenhouse

My spirits lift up and soar

Towards the blue skies and

Floating white puffy clouds

 

The blue heavens call to me

To fly and play 

Like a child on cotton candy clouds

Accompany their journey

Guided by the winds

Bouncing, frolicking with birds

 

Wherever they go they’re happy

To crash on a mountain and get blown away

Or to cushion the sun

For a beautiful scenery

 

As I sit amidst the creations of nature

I muse on

Nature’s happy obedience to God’s will

Fearless, with complete trust

In their Creator

 

Basking in the sunlight

Absorbing nature’s essence

I wish I were as brave too

My faith absolute

To fulfil my given mission
