TEMPLE BELLS


Serenity envelopes quietly
like a soft shroud
made from the softest
and whitest, baby cloud

They hang low over rolling green hills
ensuring a beautiful silence so deep
creating a meditative sleep
my eyes, they begin to weep as
a Divine love, closes my eyes with a kiss
and covers me in absolute bliss

I sit, eyes closed, senses fully alive
to natures beauty that surrounds me
I feel it with all my.senses alive
My tired body and mind revive
While I meditate silently in joy...

And then I hear them
the beautiful chimes
of the musical temple bells
the magical sound swells

resonates in the whole valley
till even the trees bow their branches
in a holy reverence
The bees and butterflies sing
with soft temperance

No sense of time,
peace sublime,
I feel cleansed and pure
of His presence so sure
In unison with a divine energy
that pervades my entire body
loth to open my eyes
with pure joy I realise
the joy and serenity of
MEDITATION

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
