Love's Sacred Sojourn: For Good Friday

Last silent, yet vibrant dawn,

I awoke with gratitude for Your effulgent love.

As my mind peeped through the dense fog of sleep,

The air felt good to my inspirations;

Yesterday’s sanctity a worthy flicker

In my receptive Soul.

‘Twas then I felt You most, in my aloneness;

Your sweet serenity my only need.

My mind, like clouds in a desert,

Nourished itself in Your embrace;

An intellect of rough seas on the ocean’s bed,

Now an epitome of Your sweetnes-light.

A once radiant heart now sparkled anew,

Its layers of turbulence, offered

In pranams at the feet of Thy sanctuary.

A Meditation

A Day for Sweet Reflections

Are all Sacred Days Meaningful to You?

Love's Sacred Sojourn (cont'd)

O Beauty unparalleled,

I see Your bright flames,

Even in my precipice of desire.

As the soothing stroke of your delicate fingers,

Reach deep into my bosom,

It rents asunder my garment of tainted love,

And I swoon in reverie, with a lovers delight.

O Pilot of the Way!

Your need is my fulfilment.

You strip asunder the wires of my tangled journey,’

Thus giving meaning to a purpose for existence,

Without which, I would most assuredly cease to be.

      Oh, my pleasure and yes I did, over on our wonderful MsDora's side of HP Town. I thought, well, I know him? And just knew I had been following, so not sure where I lost you along the line, but so glad to be reading once again!

      Lovely poem that reminds us that all we have to do is look inside to feel the love of the Christ.

      Hi Dora.

      Keats was exceptional at imagery. I must have been him! Who knows? Happy Easter Sunday!

      In celebration of Annual Poetry Month, I am informing my favorite HP poets of who they are. You are on the top of my list. Thank you for sharing your exceptional talent on this site.

      I just discovered that my love for your work is connected with my love for the work of John Keats. See my next article.

      So sweet of you.

      I thought Aspirations of Profound Love was better. NO? Read and let me know. Cheers and wishing you God's blessings on this sacred week-end.
