An Offering to all My Father-Friend's Here on Hub Pages


I always say how much I care for Mother’s: Their Love, their sacrifice; their enduring and selfless Spirit...

Today, on Father’s Day, I wish to express this same depth of emotion, for Father’s as well.

We are all the children of the One, It’s Light and goodness shines in our efforts, our joys and glories, our tribulations or constant gain and loss. Most abundantly, it glows in our Spirit.

Life has offered us a unique opportunity to serve in a very special way; to be matchless; to offer exceptionally, in a way in which no one else can. We truly have a say in manifesting the Divine; in glorifying God’s Light, and in that sense we are all radiant lamps, revealing our beauty, to a greater or lesser extent, in this wonderful world of the Supreme.The promise, innocence and purity of children, offers us a unique opportunity to do this.

Today I am using poetry, to sing and dance the beauty of the Heart, of the happiness in man, in Father’s, in all the Mother’s children, and in the mystery of our world. Alleluia!

A Meadow of Light
A Meadow of Light | Source

I wish that I could tell you, of the joy in my Heart,

When the raindrops, fell on my window.

It was a quiet spring weekend,

And I lay in bed with my Beloved,

Anchored in the beauty of Love Divine.

I wish that I could tell you,

Of the melody and resonance of the poet sublime.

Weaving and dancing in the Heart with elegance,

He paints a tapestry,

Into the magna of enchanted Souls.

I wish that I could tell you of the meadows,

And their lilies swaying with the Zephyrs.

There, Grandeur waltzes to the cadences of Mother Earth,

And I feel their healing balm,

Deep within my Core.

I wish that I could tell you of my last dream...

I sat on the Elysian lap of minstrels,

Floating on a carpet of celestial Light.

The Delight of a distant Seer lifted my Consciousness;

I exploded into fragments, of ever-effulgent beauty.

I wish that I could tell you, of the pain once burning in my Soul.

Forlorn and desperate; in isolation from my Beloved,

I cried and cried, broken, like a jilted Lover,

Until my Mona Lisa returned, and

Blessed me with Her Bliss-Delight.



I wish that I could tell you, of the charm of Mother Nature.

Ah! The scarlet rainbows; the Cascade Mountains,

A horizon glimmering like radiant lamps!

The bluebells, the hummingbirds; the bamboo shoots,

All singing their songs of freedom in my Spirit.

Finally, I wish that I could tell you,

Of the Beloved’s dream, while cradling my Soul.

An unspoken Light of Love,

Ascends from His Heart and permeates my Core,

Showering His Gratitude, into a trillion words of Silence.

      Thank you, Deb.

      Thanks for the advice. I'm better now, but the fall-out is still playing itself out. The Divine's play is a mysterious one. Much Love this Sunday.

      I am so sorry that you had to hear something like that. You see, not everyone is well, so please let it roll off your back.

      What a wonderful statement, Deb,

      And quite a sublime one, too, I must say. You are always there for me. I will truly remember this.

      P.S. Your comment is so different from that of a Hubber in my Hub Poetry: The Descent of a Higher Consciousness. There a Hubber accused me of stealing his work. I felt so sad and I'm still in the state of recovery. Have a great evening.

      As I read this, a smile washed across my face, for it was in the light, the essence, and the dawn, that beauty can be made into a song such as this.

      I actually didn't with mines. But we are all human and weak and God bless him in Heaven. Now I can say: 'Chuckle, chuckle' to your comment (first part)

      Thanks Dee. I am always happy when you stop by and it's good to know that you're there for me. Here's wishing you some very special sweetness. Feel it?

      Me again, Bro.

      My comment seemed to have disappeared!

      Thank you so much for your kind and loving share. Yes, I know of your dad through some of your Hubs. I feel that he would be very proud of you in Heaven, and I do wish him well. I do not yet know what things are like up there for Father's Day. Perhaps they have a lot of spiritual-nectar-wine. Much Love, Bro.

      My father died when I was nineteen. I still miss him today. There are so many times I wish I could sit with him and talk...but then I realize he is still here, in my heart and mind, speaking to me.

      Beautiful tribute, my friend.

      I thank you for your kind and loving contribution here. Yes, Father's do an excellent and loving job. It is for this very reason that I wanted to highlight them on Hub Pages. Much Love my Friend. Salaam!


      Thank you. This Hub is for all Father's and those here on Hub Pages, with whom I'm familiar. Thank you so much! In Joy and Light.

      'Sweet,' Shauna, isn't it?

      Only a parent could think like that. Putting the child first with much innocence, laughter and true fun. Your contribution is noted and highly appreciated. Om Shanti!

      Wonderful, wonderful tribute to all the fathers! Your excellent expressions are praiseworthy as always!

      I feel that most of us show plenty of our affection, love and gratitude to our mothers, but fathers do not get their share of emotions and affection as much as they deserve.

      And I know and I have seen my father and my husband--Their whole aim in life has been to make it possible that the ambitions and desires of their children gets fulfilled by all means. And for that they have toiled for their whole life.

      My respect and regards to all fathers on this special day and always.

      Thank you manatita for this excellent hub

      Beautiful hub manatita. I am in the middle of a tribute poem to my father as well, even though it is not Father's Day here until September. I realised I have written a tribute poem to my mother but never my father, so I have to rectify that. Voted up.
