In this hollow,

The valley of my soul

I lay my conscience bare

Waiting in patience

For wisdom, strength, healing

To climb this summit again....

Lovingly embracing this solitude

The dawn of another day

Fruitful with possibilities

The spirit of gentleness

Before the world opens

It's eyes to awaken ...

Feeling the sunlight like love

Caressing , cascading

Embracing me

Filling the hollow with abundance

No longer alone nor wanting

Benediction pronounced...

Life is not just about an achievement or name

Money, luxury or a beguiling fame

It is all about those small and ordinary things

For a contented living, they lend wings

In our day to day life we find

Many small things of this kind

Which can create a paradise on earth

For exhilaration there is no dearth

The gentle caress of your mother when you are sad and morose

Heals a thousand wounds in its course

A lean against the strong shoulders of your father

Gives the assurance of security like none other

The tender smile... Read More

I lay on the hospital bed staring at the ceiling

With an unknown anxiety and an eager feeling

The twinge of pain swirling in my abdomen

Freezing my intelligence and also my acumen

I closed my eyes and went into the reverie

Of those nine months I had passed so carefully

Conscientiously I browsed each moment

For that priceless joy, throughout it had lent

The day when I came to know that I was carrying

The first gift that God had blessed us after marrying

My ecstasy knew neither bounds nor limits

It was an exaltation... Read More

A tranquil sea shimmering in the day light

Flaunting its waves with pride

The waves danced their hearts out

Like a newly married bride

A little wave artless and gay

As fresh as morning dew

Sang, danced in the bosom of the ocean

Until a wind of madness blew

It saw a group of humans

At a distance by the seaside

With buildings and structures in the background

And golden sand beside

It had seen people sing and dance

And be merry as much as they could

And dreamt its stay on the land

Would be... Read More

Murderous nurses hacking vines with cold steel,

the gruesome toll for a grisly war...

Metal scrapes across riveted floor

like the scraps of prayers

broken upon steel bars.

Here it is dark...along the row blind men go round in circles..

Language is useless here.

The destitute beg in mime for kindness and

each day ash falls along the bitter earth.

I am a dreamer of bountiful dreams

Many never coming to fruition

I've watched them silently flying

Into the vast unknown chasm ***

Still I have dreams I realized and they bless me

So I dream on...

I am a prayer of endless prayers

Quietly I wait looking for this

Sweet redemption to bless my heart

They go unanswered***

Still many prayers were heard and justified

So I pray on...

Often I have trusted a friend

To be betrayed and left weeping

A betrayal to my heart

Scarred with pain***

Within this serenity Listening to the echosOf many choices and voicesSpeaking to my essence ***The rhythm of life drummingLoudly singing it's refrainPainting a masterpieceBreathed into existence***Bathed in purity of heartA holy chalice of graceShining it's magnificent Abundance of harmony***Floating to a quiet nestJust me and the moonAnd the blue sky of hopeListening to the voice of truth***In this place I hear God whisperReminding me to breatheTo fold on firmlyKnowing everything will be okay*** Copyright © 2012 Barbara MacDonald
