! ! Life - Poem by Bob Blackwell
we sense in
we feel, we smell,
we hear, we see,
we even taste?
This life energy,
flows through every
creature, plant, tree,
mountain, river, sea;
it flows through us all
and everything we see.
Everything on earth
has conscious movement
nothing’s really dead.
Everything that has
the mask of death,
is recycled, to grow
to renew, to change,
to be unique; an ever
changing pattern that
multiplies, alters to
create new life from
what was discarded, or
now thought deceased.
If we look with seeing eyes,
we will see how trees, plants,
and pretty flowers, appear to
radiate, to emit the glow of life.
We will become aware of how
life’s energy has so many faces,
everything’s unique, each
flake of snow, a different pattern,
each flower face is not the same.
All creatures great and small
distinctive, each a one alone.
When we really notice things, we
become more alive, we are excited
by the love for life itself; we also
understand, the join of things,
the bond, the link, the stream of life
which flows, to make all we see a
whole, a spiritual union of it all. We
see the Oneness of life’s energy is
materialized, that everything is One.
