Awakening

FORGIVENESS

 

Forgiveness sparks the soul—

when, in surrender,

I find strength to freely give

the love that God has given.

 

Love is for giving,

unencumbered by condition—

rendering blessed peace,

relief from stirring hunger.

 

May we truly spend this life,

with time still left to wonder

how forgiveness, humbly—

inspires the soul from slumber.

 

PRESENCE

 

Turning from Presence, the path fades away—

until remembering, I follow,

intuiting how and where to step.

 

The wellspring rings eternal, finding entrance

as I peer through the entanglement—

to the radiance of fertile ground.                          

 

Presence lights the Way for eyes just awakened—

through the rowdy playing field,

up the still silence of Heaven.

    I’ve read this a dozen times since you sent it. Each time I get something more from it. So deep, so beautiful.

    thank you Diane
