In search of grace

05 Oct

The thirsty soul
Seeking , searching
Hands held together,
Fingers entwined.

Palms raised upwards
Grace to receive
Knees bent humbly
Peace to find.

Eyes closed,looking inwards
Observing the fleeting breath
Trying hard to figure out
The mystery of life and death

Their voices mingle
As they pray
To the source that sings
Through night and day.

The longing to be
Secure and free
The yearning to drown
In Love’s boundless sea.

It’s so easy to see
It’s all the same
Yet we choose to hate
In religion’s name.

    A powerful message in these deceptively simple lines. –one which we chose to sideline but which remains the root of friction is most parts of the world. The end punch is superb!

    Your poem starts out in beauty and love which I felt at a visceral level. Then at the end you deliver a potent message. Very powerful. Thanks Nadira

    That was all lovely, particularly the three refuges (which I try to follow) thank you.
