Speak Without Voice

.

“We can speak without voice

to the trees and the clouds

and the waves of the sea.

Without words they respond

through the rustling of leaves

and the moving of clouds

and the murmuring of the sea.”

.

~ Paul Tillich

hear

the silence

earths quiet rhythm

can the stars speak

listen

Haiku:

the snow has melted

crocuses show tiny heads

robins announce spring

Poem:

.

can we always describe the emotion we feel
one word, one definition would be the ideal
there is always a but, or, maybe, could be iffy
sad, happy, glad, changes in a jiffy

feelings that make the lovers sweat
blood pressure rising when one is upset
how do you best describe clammy hands
are we sure that everyone understands

how horrible when one feels ill
can you have faith in one little pill
only when confronted does it make us feel small
how much time do we spend having no feelings at all

at what level do emotions become drama
who is to argue that it may be trauma
some shrink needs to develop an emotions scale
from one to ten, to measure from success to fail

must we have feelings on someone else’s demand
will Big Brother have all emotions banned
mothers have shed enough tears to fill the oceans
above all, please, avoid the explosions

can we avoid the feelings if we stay in bed all day
will the god’s make us feel good if we pray
bewilderment, embarrassment enough feelings for one day
how does the piper demand his pay

today, just be safe, guard your emotions
give the feelings to God in your daily devotions
may all of your feelings be wrapped in rainbows
may they be only good feelings from head to toes

But Only Tired

.

“I was not sorrowful,

but only tired

Of everything that

ever I desired.”

fragrant

smells good

stimulates the imagination

pleasures for all senses

aromatic

seeing you again

dreams relived

old feelings renewed

Poem:

.

can you hear it, the song of the universe
music that stirs every atom of the heart
chords and melodies your being to immerse
every emotion intent on feeling its part

can you see it, heaven aglow with brilliant stars
their dancing choreographed with every note
glittering light reflected by brilliant feldspar’s
words softly sung through a velvet throat

can you feel it, a touch of heavens euphony
sounds that touch the ends of each nerve
every tone becomes a celebrated jubilee
sung by pure voices that angels serve

can you smell it, fragrances carried by varied sounds
from idyllic pastures to the cannons roar
music knows its place, from forefront to backgrounds
every nuance designed to make the spirits soar

can you taste it, songs that stir the imagination
from the ice cream truck to the commercial jingle
a symphony written as a part of the creation
when you are in tune it will make your spine tingle

let the music of the universe invade your  being
allow the children’s laughter to be your first sign
permit your body, mind and soul to be set freeing
enable yourself and the universe to align
