The Poetry Of The Places - Poem by Masa MbathaOpasha


The wilderness is where it all began
Unclever beasts playing with eternity
Human iniquities becoming wise
Animal innocence constantly faithful
The sacred patience of oceans and seas
the liquid inspirations of dreams
Forests and mountains loyal guardians
of earthly secrets, treasurers of the world
Monuments, silent poets that tell
The fantastic mysteries of the human minds
The landscapes and the paths emanating,
The ancient fragrances of the universe
Every stone in every land, every dust
Canyons, desert dunes and every angle under the sun
Countries young or old, cities, towns, villages and Synagogues
Airports, harbors, bays, stations, neighborhoods, and Temples
Dams, rivers, streams, ponds, lakes and Mosques
Valleys, hillsides, green meadows, fields and Stadiums
Whisper the poetry of the places and reveal
The natural identity of God, a mighty ethereal energy
A jewel not yet discovered, a holy intuition
Of what living things are and might become
Sad songs at cemeteries to remind us that we live
And die for the sake of happiness and peace
A state of spiritual feelings beyond compare!
