Hi all, here is page 2 of sixteen of my contemplative poems. You can access the other three pages via the contemplative poetry link in the main menu above, or the pages links immediately below.. I have joined up each poem with a matching painting. I hope you enjoy them.
Happiness found through sight unseen,
through pencils and pastels of blue and green.
Silently singing their songs of praise,
through awareness uplifted and joy upraised.
to know and see in the presence of thee
is the gift of joy bestowed upon me
Waiting and watching , I await so near,
always listening with patient ear.
Expectant yet still, I bide my time,
I come when I will, you’ll yet be mine
.You know when I’m here, you’ll feel the thrill,
of the urge to make, to create and fulfill.
No rest or sleep will you want or need,
in the grip of creation, no nothing no creed.
The light of completion brightens a smile,
that warms the heart with innocent guile.
To sit and see the deed that was done,
is the joy that is found when creation has won
A sunlit still morning, pregnant with the pause of the day,
instils its sweet softness upon the scent of my soul.
Uplifting and caressing in its quiet soft strength,
I uphold its own yearning for its own long ascent.
not here or there, but everywhere, never very far
Kaleidoscopic views of cascading sounds,
fall upon a childlike wonder.
Oohs, aahs and unspeakable perception,
settle within a silent ocean of calm awareness.
Knower and known fused together, yet separate and distinct.
Slow burning joy descends, suffusing outbreaks of
conscious delight, with every minute sensory touch.
