Absorbed in Light

O radiant Light!

You that sparkle in the daytime;

You the stars at night.

Exquisite Petal; enchanting Flower,

May Your dancing form and unparalleled fragrance,

Engulf my aching heart.

Come walk with me on yonder meadows.

And, like a gentle dewdrop on a flowering dahlia,

Embrace me tenderly on Your nestling arms.


Never a dull moment!

For even when my lustre dimmers,

Your bounteous Grace still flow;

I see Your opalescent glow.

O Jewel of my eye,

Pour into my heart Your Silence-Peace.

25th April, 1998. Copyrighted.

Thanks Nellieanna.

A charming endorsement. Thank you so much!!

What do you think of a book of poems? Do you like the titles of Songs of Inspiration or Inspirations of Love? What do you think of a book cover design? Let me know, thanks.

I think a book of your poems would be a wonderful treat for the public, Manatita! Either title would be appropriate. Perhaps one as "the title" and the other as its subtitle? They do seem to relate to each other.

The book cover might feature a somewhat stylized version of the kinds of illustrations you use for your hubs: - ethereal, vast, inspirational.

Perhaps you should talk to one of our more experienced and/or professional colleagues about book publishing and design if you’re serious. I know of a few, but there are probably others of whom I’m unaware with such experience and expertise. There is abundant talent among our group.

Nellieanna,

About the design, I was actually thinking about You! (Smile)?
