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
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.
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
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.
The sun and the sky are mine.
To breathe in the light of life and fly among birds to the rainbow.
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
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
