The Beauty of Another Glorious Dawn. A Sonnet Offering to Ralph Schwartz


To my Dear Friend, Ralph, With Much Love.

Daybreak unfolds …;

I enter a rhythm of zest …vibrancy…

Last night the moon was so beautiful!

It still pervades my core with purest Light.

I walk to the front door, and

Like a great J'adore of Christian Dior,

I Inhale the crisp air… stretch …;

Drink from the sanctity of His Glory.

All is so simple today!

The garden is unkempt and yet,

My Heart soars, like an eagle,

To the splashing of waves, on the ocean’s crest.

Aaahh! Today hails another glorious sunrise,

And my Soul sings in the Temple of the Sun.

"When the Consciousness or Spirit rises, there is a compelling inner Energy that fills the eyes with jasmine drops, while the Heart sings a melody unspoken ... in the great Silence of the Soul." -Manatita

Where I come from, the sun always rises, but not everyone has the capacity to see it.

I'm both blessed and humbled by this dedication my brother. You never cease to amaze me with such an absolute up adulterer outpouring of love for your fellow human beings. Your friendship and correspondence has been very dear to me and your works so uplifting. Blessed be!

Much Gratitude, my Bro. We all need to serve each other from time to time. Good for our own Hearts. Giving and receiving is so important in this game of life. An 'adulterer outpouring of Love?' and I thought that I was good. Ha ha.

Ah CrisSp, what a sweet thing to say! And on Easter Sunday also. I will remember you at my Meditation Centre this very morning here in London, UK. Much Love, CrisSp, Much. Hugs to you in the sky.

You make the day extra special with your sonnets and dedications to someone. It's been a while since I've been here and to see this sonnet to Ralph adds freshness of joy to me after yesterday's 24 hr. Sabbath rest and today's praise and worship. What a rejuvenating poem with music at the end. May you both be continually blessed!

I love watching the sun come up through the dark of night. The beautiful pink and blue hues are breathtaking. Then the birds awaken and chirp their morning songs, bringing us a brand new day.
