Valsa George

'This is My Prayer to Thee'

Make me a flower
delicate and sweet, spewing fragrance
into the blowing breeze.
Make me a violin
from whose strings melody flows
to soothe the ailing nerves.
Make me a rain cloud
sailing over the breadth of skies
showering cooling droplets
on to the thirsting mouth of the Earth.
Make me a lamp
shedding beams of light
dissipating darkness
from the mazy depths of gloom.
Make me a vessel
full with love to pour out into empty pitchers.
Make me a barge
with sails filled by the wind
that in me, I can ferry the sinking souls
to far safer shores of life.

Let every atom of my being
throb with Thy filling love
Let it spring forth in jets
to form the gushing stream
Let many drink from that fountain
and taste the sweetness
of Thy nourishing love
Let the land be watered
Let the dirt be cleansed
Let the Earth wear a celestial charm
Let the plants celebrate the carnival of colours
and in my basket shall I gather
many a fragrant bloom
to be offered at your feet with love
and remain squatted in Thy presence,
not losing in the pageant
of this transient life.

    It will take me a while Valsa, but I am willing to give it a go. Far better than being asked to just put a couple of shelves up.
    I adore your imagination and the jewels that it pours onto your pages. (Report) Reply

    Is it better to pray or not to pray at all.There are steps up the mountain and when you
    arrive there you will find you are short of God. The steps are faith the top of the mountain is belief.
    But you are still short of the glory of God. But your faith leads you to the top and belief ensures your
    convictions. And while you are at the top would be a good time to pray. (Report) Reply

    Oh Unknown Thee! Why don`t Thou come out of Thy cocoon for a while, speak or do something that may fulfill some of the wishes of Madam Valsa? In next Universe Thou will be Judged, I prophesy... I am not joking here.
    A good human being you are Valsa.. (Report) Reply
