The dove of truth


The dove of truth is sitting in our garden
Our gaze inside the room
Light and truth just outside our window
Our eyes see only gloom

The dove of truth is making dovely sounds
Our ears like better beat and drum
Love and truth just outside our window
But our ears are deaf for them

The dove of truth is still sitting in our garden
Her message clearly there
Love and light just outside our window
But our egos would not care

If just our ego could be silenced
The dove of truth is never far away
Truth, light and love is all around,
Our soul will pray.

    You are on the right track. However, we should always follow our feelings. Do not try to be what you are not, because of the influence of the world.
    I see the beauty of the soul surfacing. Wait upon the Lord patiently, and some day it will be clear. (Report) Reply

    Yes, if we could only push Mr. ego aside and tap into our soul/our truth our lives would be so much better. Thank you for this message. Peace, S. (Report) Reply

    Why should this dove of truth remain in one garden? Let it fly in all directions.

    The style in the selection of the words in terms of etymology really affects the whole poem and additionally there are important messages as to the structure of divinity... Thanks a lot for such a wonderful sharing... I am looking forward to others to be excellently written by you, my poem friend... (Report) Reply

    Truth, light and love have a way of piercing the gloom, only if we allow each to penetrate. The soul is so easily damaged, just allow the dove of truth to cross the threshhold! A beautiful, meaningful poem.; D (Report) Reply
