! ! Life

Rating: 3.2
This life,
this energy,
this consciousness,
we sense in
we touch,
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.

I support your sentiments and views. There are so many things that we can know and appreciate and so many ways in which to accomplish that. It would be most helpful if we could always be aware of how everything is interrelated and, hopefully, know how it contributes or doesn't contribute to a better life for someone and everyone. This should be the subject of our daily meditation. At the same time we must regretably realize that some things can be annihilated - never to exist again.

I feel things intuitively and your insightful poem is what I have sensed since retirement. This is spellbinding writing Bob, and I know I feel like shouting from the roof tops about the interconnection between all living things. You have an amazing knowledge and vocabulary and I think your words will be a great comfort to so many people. 10 Karin Anderson

Dear Bob, the beauty, uniqueness of one and all, awareness of ever changing facets of all living things comes with maturity. respect for all and learning lessons from life makes us who we are. your poem evokes feeling of serenity at this midnight hour. always. your poems have that kind of effect and bring about a shift in perception. thanks Regards Mamta
