It gathers on the wind
With each wave strewn,
Across the tiny grains of sand
To be washed out to sea.
And then deposited once more on a new shore.
Repeating, moving, gaining strength.
This one song-a Uni/verse,
Sung with a peaceful voice.
First a ripple, then a diverse chorus rising
Gathering once again to be born on the wind.
Our true essence shared
Free of judgment, compassionate heart
Turned inward on ourselves.
Serves all; one world.
This one song I sing-this uni/verse….

This poem …really a soulful song….sprung from me during one of my writing sessions recently. I have been contemplating a more compassionate way of life, and how to bring this way of compassion to more people. The word universe quite simply means, one song. And from this thought, the words came forth to be born and shared here…..perhaps giving people pause to consider compassion as a universal song.
I will not have a post this Thursday or next Sunday, but will be back on Thursday, October 22nd.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.
If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs.
Special Note: The pictures here are from a shore close by to me. Not the sea, but a wonderful lake across the street that I profiled a couple of weeks ago.
I leave you with a few additional thoughts about the Uni/verse. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
