Forward to the Source

The Golden Shore is beckoning me,

The helmsman steadfastly holds the key.

The scenic horizon flashes at sea,

As I lie in the boat with a plea.

“Keep me in this, your vessel, my Lord,

Let me row, or sleep, or be free,

From lower desires that makes me bad,

And keeps me away from Thee.



I have sensed your poise in the distance vast,

The Light of Your Crown I see.

Full speed ahead as I part with my past,

I am as strong as the huge oak tree.

The call of communion I feel deep within;

By Faith I am touching your Face.

I long to commune with things Unseen;

To be free from this earthly place.



Harken o Lord, to Thee I do pray,

Free all my shackles and chains,

Pilot the helmsman, that this boat does not stray,

Touching Your shore, I’ll be free from my pains.

O Friend of the lowly, childlike and sweet,

How I long to sit at Your lotus feet!

A blindingly perpetual, infinite sight,

In sweet ecstasy-cosmic, radiant-light."

-Manatita 1st May, 2013.

      Welcome. Good to see you here. I feel that you will benefit from my other works: A Song for my Beloved; A Moment's Peace; We're all Guided by The Light, etc. Have a look at my Hubs. Thanks for your input.

      The Golden Shore is our destination and whether we are sailing through troubled waters or climbing steep hills in the process, what glory it will be when we reach that shore. Bless you for your lovely poem.

      A great setting, literal or figurative, for communion with God. And again, some excellent literary expressions. Thanks for the beautiful share.
