Aufie Zophy Poems

I am a little purple flower
My petals so extremely small
I 've stood in the grass for many an hour
Enjoying a breeze most of all

It is dark, no moon, no light
Just darkness, a starless sky
The wind blows, the waves break
A single firefly passes by

My son, I can see so many good things in you
And here I am really honest and true.
My son, I love it when your caring heart opens wide
When I had a headache you came and sat by my side

Reflecting on my life at the end of the week
A tear leaves my eye and caresses my cheek
My ego wants to force a smile, but my soul doesn’t feel the need
This little sadness doesn’t taste bitter; it is sweet

At the time, I was a five-year old boy
A visit to my aunty, always a joy
My cousin was playing with cars at the back
He just had a new one, the body in black

I went to the sea of love, this noon
I took it and put it in a blue balloon

I brought this balloon, so blue

One day, I want to melt all gold on earth
And make a wonderful key with it all
This special key of incredible worth
Will be fit to unlock your heart and soul

I guess it was my aunty's fault
That before I was six years old
It were my looks that made me happy
She just never stopped praising me

Contemplation, searching for my soul
Silence encompassing all
Alone but not in solitude
Silence giving fortitude

Soothing, breaking one by one,
Peaceful brushing on the shore
In crescendo and then back down
My soul is asking for much more

Walking on a hot and scorching day
We meet a splitting of the way
A way downwards looking shady, some trees are there
A way upwards, sandy without trees, just looking bare

In the universe, a human so small,
Looking just like a speck of dust
But born with a mind and a soul
And able to think, love and trust.

I pray for love
We are all bathing in it
We just have to open our hearts,
to open our minds

While waiting in a queue or jam
Let's try to connect to our heart
And search for a lovely feeling


Words point at the Truth
Just as you can point
With your finger to the moon

Suppose you had a goose,
A goose that would produce
A golden egg a day
You wouldn’t want to lose

Praying with ego, or praying with soul,

The ego prayer is our ego, talking.
It sees prayer as a sacrifice of our time,


I dream
of a wave of peace

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

Food for the body

I know of men, who do not have enough,
Lacking food and drink, their life is rough

The Best Poem Of Aufie Zophy

Little Purple Flower

I am a little purple flower
My petals so extremely small
I 've stood in the grass for many an hour
Enjoying a breeze most of all

But, oh, what happened to my peers!
Just yesterday, it moved me to tears
While the children of John were playing their game
My peers were trampled to death, what a shame

When just before that, some bigger flowers were damaged
The children were scolded badly by John
But when my brothers were ravaged
It was noticed, sadly, by none

Today, however, I had a reason to smile
A nerd, or so he must be
Looked at this little purplish flower, a while
And took a picture of me

Even if tomorrow, to the worst of my fears
I have to die, as yesterday my peers
I will do so happily
since someone has seen the beauty in me.

I love the metaphors. The realizations. The deep thinking. The light thinking. The bouncy feel to some. The dredging feel to others. Great work. I like it! :)

A kind and wise person who is undoubtedly a true poet; who writes the words not from the mind but from the heart. Beauty and inspiration is in all the poetry that comes from this artist's loving hand.

Of four hundred odd poems AZ has written, I have read many and found most of them, if I say are eminently readable, it is not enough, many of them I enjoyed thoroughly. I wish him well.

Aufie Zophy Quotes

fighting for religion is like bulldozing your garden because someone stole a flower

A man sitting in the seat in front of me was reading the paper absorbing all negativity missing the absolute beauty of reality

Imagine a man, born with a heart full of kindness but it is hidden under a mountain of greed He has something within of more worth than all gold on earth, but he is not rich

Every human has within love for truth love for the good love for beauty

Soon there will be a huge wisdom revolution Soon there will be a huge kindness revolution This is now more than a dream of me It has become a knowing

very special are moments outside when the dark of the night gives way to the day's light

If we keep one eye on the hereafter we have only one eye for the task at hand here and now If keep both eyes on the hereafter we're walking in complete darkness in the here and now

Mom, can you help me? Sure can!

Start believing in world peace today a journey of 1000 miles starts with one step Getting peace for 8 billion starts with one believer!

J'aime, donc je suis. I love, thus I exist

When I was young it were my ideals that gave me greatest joy and they still do

When I have a hard time, my ideals keep me going.

Praying to be loved by God is like praying to be wet while taking a shower. We just need to become aware...

When all else will be gone, kindness will remain
