The crown of God

IMG_0304

  

   Hope adorn the firmament

   Words extol its splendour

   All could see the glory

   As hearts leap in amazement

 

   The journey into eternity

   Sufficient for many lifetime

   Everything adding-up in shape

   Two dancing the songs of gratitude

   

   Fulfilment glow within sight

   Joy entrenched in bones

   Trudging ahead mouths agape

   And grapple how to carry the blessings

 

Enter the wind of rage

As ugly king of hell frowns

Venom of pain spills to annihilate

Dryness prevail as tears rain in the desert

 

Heaven rouses to shield the broken

Spikes of evil kaput beyond salvage

Pillar of despair drowned by favour

Assured victory certain to reign

 

One and five miles down the path

A tiny smile salutes mother earth

Howling a baggage of love and grace

The crown of God that fit

                                                         –  In His Grip

Living by giving

Giving shares a life 

Depriving self of the whole to keep a piece

Passing-on what the flesh yearn to retain

An act that subtract at dusk

A sacrifice rewarding at dawn

 

Giving spreads love

Dispersing boundless care for others

Generosity amidst personal craving

Blind to the failings of greed and egotism

Bridging boundaries of lack and plenty

 

Giving brings health to the body

Like a convivial alley of bliss

A soothing wind that caress the soul

Drawing strength from the lifted life of another

We power on bloated by the joy we extend

 

Giving is an exercise in goodness

A need creates the burden to share

Prompted by a facilitator on His throne

The giver touches a receiver

A glorious life we live when we give

                                             

                                                         –  In His grip,
