For your love, service, ability to uplift; your innate delight in the joy of Oneness

Who said that marbles don’t speak?

Go and visit the portals of the Taj Mahal;

An epitome of glitter and wonder,

Would shine on the grandeur of your Heart.


Come! All those who tire and need respite.

Feel the serenity of this ‘Legend of Eternal Love.’

When the moon shines, a golden splendour sparkles;

Evokes the Spirit of Mumtaz and Shah Jahan.


Who said that nature does not speak?

Lay your head on the body of the Cascade Mountains.

Cup its soil with your feet.

Your heart will be enamoured with beauty;

Your Soul drunk in bewilderment and awe.


Who said that monuments don’t speak?

Iconic and breath-taking, the Eiffel Tower

Weaves an artistic tapestry,

Paints an internal portrait to all,

On the Canvas of the Parisian Soul.


Last evening, I visited the Louvre;

Went sporting to the Crest of Heaven.

There I was garlanded by Mona Lisa,

Who decorated my admiration,

While Da Vinci wafted her fragrance into my Core.


Who said that Peaks don’t speak?

I walked through the forests, the valleys of

Matlock, Buxton, Dovedale; Aylesbury...

The vines and stones whistled, banqueted

And danced with me;

I became immersed, in a flood of Delight!


Who said that the voiceless don’t speak? Who?

Yes Bill, I thought of you when I wrote it, remembered your love for those mountains, and well ....need I say more?

Love the Eiffel Tower, Mona Lisa and much more but nature has it over everything. My 'soul' place is the South Downs in Sussex. They are magnificent, provide views of sea and weald, and they are my 'home'.

I love this poem! It speaks the truth of nature's wonders which in turn speak to us of so many things; things you've captured here in a style only you have.

Bill deserves such a tribute; he speaks to us in so many ways too!

You have honored a friend with your beautiful words. There are many great places in the world and your poetry brought them close to the heart. A sunlit ocean is my favorite place to visit.

Natural art may not have a mouth, but as you point out, they do speak loudly. What a wonderful poem to dedicate to Bill.

Yes, Ann. It is truly beautiful there. Cheddar Gorge, Devon, The Peak District ... we have so many beautiful places! Thank you.

I feel so close to Bill. He tries and I try .. that's all we can do, the rest is in the hands of the Mother, really.

So good to hear from you again. I took about six weeks rest but am now on the real rest, my pilgrimage in NY. Love to your family.

Thanks Shauna.

I think only Ms Dora, perhaps, has got more tributes from me. A good man, Bill ...

Ruby,

Almost mentioned the Ocean, but then the poem would have been too long. But yes, you are so right! I mention the Ocean in many poems.

Marlene,

Glad you liked it. I have a cool one called Stages of Freedom coming soon. Perhaps tomorrow. Feel free to write. I start my pilgrimage tomorrow, and I am always inebriated with His mercies at such times.

We are surrounded by voices. We just have to train ourselves on the correct method of "hearing." It isn't always auditory. This is a great tribute.
