13 Meditation Prayer


Out of the sea the sun aborning Not adorned but all adorning
With His awesome light of morning Says to you 'Come! My Mavoorning! '
*
Spiraling blue spruce spires... their steeples point to blue star fire.... the Breath of Spirit moves their lyres
*
The sun does nothing but meditate.. yet flow his rays
in 360 cubed ways. He is focused on one point, but his energy
transforms..all points.
*
As he saw.. his fears were allayed..for there was the sun
in mornlight arrayed.. there were the trees with springblooms sprayed.... answered were the
prayers.. that he had prayed
*
Sunrise does night shadows shatter.. for all are Spirit
not their bodies' matter
*
Knowing that if he took any more animals in his ark would
sink, he began to pray.
*
Jack in the Pulpit has taken up silence.. to his new sermon none said
'ahem'...many said 'amen'...
*
Pen chisel carves tunnel out of feelings' mine cavein
*
God and humans both know of love unreturned. But about
this God is unconcerned.
*
Held the dew the concave butternut better than the convex buttercup
*
Dawn drawn dandelions sun-summoned... spread gold parasols
... another sundown will bring.. a diaspora of dandelion down
*
From all eyes shines God's light... from every human, bird, fish and mite
*
The mind of a genius is a sky piled high with lightning
forked thunderclouds. The desireless mind of a master is blue with nary
a cloud.
*
She was not forced to walk the plank into the ocean of her Self
... she was ready to wade into the waters of Love.
*
Deity winds blow into the Lungs, the Temple of Breath
*
Sipping from a teacup he mulled over the day's deeds
... from tea brewed with red clover seeds
*
Trees of January like Job continue to lift their arms in prayer
though they are powerless, unable to speak or move, their leaves stolen.
*
He took off his boots, but still the discalced elephant's tread
caused harm and so he decided to meditate in the pond.
*
As a telescope turns the pinprick of light
into the jewel of Jupiter, meditation gives tangible
proximity to God who indwells all
*
He feared when he died he would slide to hell
down a slippery funnel but God told him he'd rise
to him... through a lightfilled tunnel
*
the bees' buzzing omkar to blooming little stars
*
One thought Britannia once ruled the waves. Another thought: India rules the quiet depths.
*
Into the chasm of your desire God pours His divinity fire
... assumes His liquid gold the form of your wish mold
*

-
Out of the sea the sun aborning is to Ethel Lynch
Blue Spruce Spires.. to D Billow
The meditating sun is to Marty Solomon
India rules the quiet depths is to B Pinkus

Omkar: repetition of the sound of Om
