Treasure Island

Fleurette Elaine Harris

(September 23rd / Port Antonio Jamaica)

The Awakening


Awoken like a bloom in a sacred corner of the earth
Land of the Fair Isle
Xyamaica

My heart spreads its wings like a free eagle in a playful dance
Splashing up water
And mother’s discipline.

I thought this place was my little country
Until I met a map of the world

On the mountain top
I flew
To call upon my invisible neighbors
No one answered
I was talking to myself and to my God

Then I found a way
A heart abounding with limitless love
A showering of goodness to all beings
This became my meditation

There in solemn surrender
I beheld angels on tip toes
Decked in all splendor
Heralding the unification of all people
Sanctioned by the will of God

Thus I rose to my higher self
And heard a voice singing
“There is no religion higher than truth”
A truth that says
“We all are one”

Out of this oneness emerged
Diverse nation’s united
By the common denominator called Love called
Aspiration for truth.

Then I began to see a time where
Illusions are transformed into
Reality
And the world became as it was ordained by
God
The arena of the greatest celebration

Thus I rose to my higher self
And heard a voice singing
Rise up ye mighty people and know

That

We are all reflections of each other
Bound by the destiny of love
Graced by our service to each other

    And that is why I am suggesting that we replace Black History used to describe February to Empowerment month as everyone, of every hue needs that! (Report) Reply

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
