She Walked In Beauty... - Poem by Almedia Knight Oliver

From a distance:
East, South, West, and North
Surrounded and maintains balance
going forth.

Upon mother earth:
Supported and nourished everyone
and merits each one's respect

Under Sun god:
Your light shines and gives light,
Warms, and embraces lovingly

Surrounded by wind:
Sometime blows strong, sometimes
A gentle caress from your breeze

With water:
That sustains all life form
That all know not thirst

Under moon and stars:
Illuminates the earth, and
Forever watches over your clan

Be in harmony
with selves, forever
Strolling in your beauty!

[ In honor of my late mother on 'Mother's Day' May 9,2010]

    You have done the mymessis very well. Mother Earth bears so burden today as we the demons always try to give her an ultimate jerk to finish the journey of beings into the nothingness. Cruelty always carries the guilotine to identify us as the murderer of our mother with our own hand. Sad thoughts should not be uttered after reading so beautiful writing but can't keep myself dumb.
    Honourable poet, you have painted and personified the Ideal mother on so large a canvass,
    my passion is also to attribute a tinniest dropp of colour on it. Its the only reason of talking so much.

    Be in harmony: /'First with self /Now, All stroll in my beauty'

    Unless one’s inner eyes [feelings] see beauty [even in ugly = ugly beauty] how one can see beauty outside

    One has to pick up from way side unnoticed beauty…

    If one’s oscillation and wave length are not personalized customized and acclimatized in beaut ornamentation one is blind with full vision one has to programme ‘by default’ type attitude…lolol

    It’s a nice poem especially in the vibes of Nature [Mother]

    Its nifty tribute by an able progeny who cares and endears Mom…I’m sure your late Mom surely enjoying this glorification
