pinnacle of prayer

Rassouli - Sea of Serenity

The presence of the Beloved
is the pinnacle and rising answer
to all prayer
Each morning when I sit quietly
and open my heart to my God
I feel the Silence surrounding me
tenderly sliding a morning breeze
around my shoulders
softly brushing my lips..
a deep feeling of love slips
into the sanctuary of my soul
prayer becomes a Joy ..
soaring beyond words
for pure love carries
its own promise
of presence
whatever comes…..

writing messages with light

the spirit settles lightly in my palm

spreading the wings of the Soul

O my Beloved spreading the wings of the Soul
you glide into my heart with a glance
knowing the secrets of my deep longing
this piercing awareness that your existence
permeates everything upon this earth
as the heavens tell your story in the skies
for there is nowhere you are not my love
my very life clings tenaciously to the breeze
your gentle fingers like spring ruffling my hair
caressed by the soft sigh of your every breath
bringing the glory of the seasons of love..

the song of morning

Perhaps the dawn is but the radiant light
spilling from my Beloved’s eyes,
coloring the skies with love,
and I have passed the night safely
in the grace of a sheltering embrace,
the darkness gentled by moonlight to give me rest,
the Beloved keeping a sweet vigil of peace
as I align with the pulsing rhythm
of a greater heart, feeling the warmth of loving care
having the faith to know thy spirit is there.
Nestling in the harbor of your arms to await
the whispering song of morning love.

endlessly creating…..

endlessly creating

And the Creator brushes
the sky with Light
combing the long silvery strands
of silken hair
touched by the moon
into the Universe
with gentle fingers
open palms
warming the world
with love
that gives new life
to spacelessness

God humanizes
the stark beauty
the pristine silence
and coaxes
the color and light
into form
giving birth
to belovedness

trembling breath
as a whispering heart
awakens in divine arms
in deep wonder
and innocence

we flow into life
being created
moment by moment by moment

Oh…the precious silence of these early hours
softly arousing sleepy wildflowers
the Beloved bids my soul to rise
drawing me beyond my eyes
a spinning flight
into glowing light of inner sight

the touch of spirit
is empowered
by faith and longing
………by heartfelt love…
soulful devotion…
by a mystery infused
by divine grace..
a transforming alchemy
that moves us beyond
what we can truly explain
in words…
kindling the flame
and hope
of creative vision…
and inspiration…

Breath of Silence

~ The Breath of Silence..

The heart hovers
like the quivering blur
of the hummingbird
sensing sweetness
in the blossom softly opening
to the light
the innocence of the flower
lays itself open
to the warmth
of the sun
as some divinely given instinct
summons the seeker
cloaked
in flashing colors
waiting and watching
in the stunning vision
of whirring wings
to taste the virgin freshness
of the heart of beauty
both yield to their destiny
in the freshness of dew
at dawn
giving and sharing
the holy essence of communion
