When the Heart Cries Out!

26 July 2013 - 11:45pm -- charles

"Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life." Proverbs 4:23


When the heart cries out:

The hidden and apparently weak

Spring up and to the fore

The chains that bind no longer hold

And iron grips melt away


When the heart cries out:

Like the pupa hatched from an egg

The spirit emerges

Reflections: Wondering the Sea of Life

3 July 2013 - 5:22pm -- gisella

 I am sitting staring out at the sea. As I watch, it waxes and wanes, to and fro

                              I wonder how far beyond the distance of my sight the water stretches, where it begins and where it ends

                             I wonder how deep the depth of its belly really is.  Waxing and waning its belly churns, at times bringing fear, at times peace

                            I wonder how wide its arms are that its breadth should embrace all the earth.  As it surges forward it brings countless granules of sand    ashore and on withdrawing it returns taking just as many away

As I ponder upon the sea I am left wondering of life itself

                           How far beyond the distance of my eye’s reach it stretches
