That Magical Haven.

Source

It saddens me greatly when I listen to the news broadcasts of today; the whole world over seems to be caught up in such escalating crime and the cruelty of wars.

I very often ask myself where will it all end???

Each and everyday there are news bulletins here in the UK alone so full of crimes with each one seemingly more violent and vile than the last.

We cannot escape it ;we cannot live in an invisible bubble where nothing can touch us again ; where we live on totally unaware of what goes on around us !!!

However I do think that it is important at these times to remember the beauty that is also in this world; Mother Nature's haven is all around and is free for us all to enjoy.

Take a few moments to look a round you ; look closely and the magic of nature will softly touch your being and will bring a little brightness to balance your world.

There is no need to travel far as we can find beauty and love right on our own doorstep.

Today's song 'The Prayer ' sung by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli is one that fills my heart with wonder and delight as well as bringing softness and beauty to my life.

I hope you all enjoy today's hub.



That magical haven

A world so divine;

Where love is the food

And music the wine.

x

That magical haven

So green are the trees;

Each gem so treasured

Playing in the breeze.

x

That magical haven

Deep in each everglade;

Mother nature ne'er far

Her love'll never fade.

x

That magical haven

Each heart now to share;

Wondrously real

So sincere the care.

x

That magical haven

I share from my heart;

My wondrous journey

Yes right from the start.

Moments of wonder

Life's so treasured and precious

Such beauty to share.

Source

Haven of wonder

A beat of my heart

Volumes are spoken

Eternal its charm

Never-ending a balm.

x

Oh how my heart sings

Free as a bird.

x

Wondrous emotions

Oh I hold them so dear

Never ever disregarding

Divine my appreciation

Evermore I'll treasure

Respect and true love.


Source

So coy

Almost a peep

A moment to relish

My haven's made my life complete

Sincerity flies to the heavens high

My solace has been my kingdom

Love now strengthens my soul

Oh such presence

So coy.

Source

Contentedly

I taste

the joys of life;

initial trepidation

replaced by instincts

of the realm;

of the kingdom

of Mother Nature's haven.

Each step to treasure

each moment of wonder.

A gift oh so blessed

freely mingling

with the treasures

of life.

Each footstep a moment

so wondrous;

so steeped

in the true magical wonders

of a life;

so wondrous;

so privileged;

so complete.

Thank you so very much Graham and as always your comment greatly appreciated. I hope you are keeping well and this British weather is being as unpredictable as ever !!!I don't think I have ever known it to be this changeable though. One minute raining in 30 minutes could be a mini heat wave.

Take care my friend and enjoy your day.

Crimes and violence sadden me too. I think as a society we have to think positively and promote respect and peace and hope that it will be sowed slowly but surely throughout the world and for the next generation.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful poetry, Eddy! Thank you for sharing your beautiful thoughts!

Have a great day!

Eddy, this opening stanza says it all. It is such a beautiful sentiment. Yes, the beauty of the world can be found right at our front door. We must never give into the ugliness of the world but always see the beauty and love of life.

Dear Eddy, this is a gorgeous tribute to Mother Nature and some of the glorious animals and magical sights that surround us. We are truly blessed, but you are right about the violence. It permeates everything, and it has been escalating more now I think than ever before.

Thank you for finding the real beauty of this Earth in both your awesome poetry and images. Have a lovely and peaceful day, my friend ;) Pearl

So very beautiful Eddy, Loved the video. As i watched the world news this evening, i felt like the whole world was coming apart. Chemical gassing of the people, mostly all children was heartbreaking to watch. I wonder how long before our government's intervene? That's one of the reasons to visit your page. I always see and feel beauty here...

I know exactly what you mean, Eddy. I can’t watch the news anymore; at least, not as much as I used to -- it is so heart wrenching and worrisome. I can’t help but wonder why they only report the negatives and rarely the positives…are these not newsworthy stories as well?

Your beautiful hub is so loving, inspirational and uplifting. I shall return to it often. Thank you! :-)

The Prayer song always brings tears to my heart and Celion makes it a beautiful expression of faith. I too am so tired of the news on abuse, crime, drugs, etc. and I pray we see an end to it all soon. May Heaven bring us relief.
