Beyond The Beautiful! - Poem by Denis Martindale

Whatsoever strikes a chord in the human heart,
Be it the ponderings of sunshine or rain,
Will never be as beautiful
As the true love that blossoms like a rose,
Or the thrill of that first perfect kiss...

Yet if a poem can capture that magic
And compress it to just a few lyrical lines,
With all the majesty of a holy psalm,
Then the inspired poet or poetess
Has served both God and humanity well...

For having seen the beautiful
And sharing it afresh with others,
Delighting in the cosmic carousel,
Is that not the expression of harmony,
As with one's own kindred spirits here on Earth?

Therefore pray for poets and for poetesses,
That their visions and their dreams are blessed,
For they are loyal to their vocations,
Blessed anew when you sigh or smile at winsome muse,
Shed abroad for your eyes and ears to perceive...

And perhaps, anointed with precious prayers,
A prophecy or two, a wondrous promise of good tidings,
An undeserved godly favour, a word in season,
With translated interpretations the Holy Spirit shares,
Customised to your life's journey, meant just for you...
