River Of Love's Offering

River Of Love's Offering

In the gentle lighting of the mind
The stage is set
Through creeks and rivers
Wearing away
At the smooth surfaces
That allow for personal pressures
To justify the succumbing to
Thousands of years
Of spiritual waves
Splashing consistently, unrelentingly
Upon 'the baptizer's' banks
Of holy grounds
And watery rituals
Promising
That eternity's loving embrace
Is not death at all
But Love's
Intricacies and surprises
Which call forth
The smiles
Of truly
Passionate
Comprehension
Of the unconditional Love
Offered,
By,
The Paraclete....

Hey Sweet T....I love the picture you chose to go along with your write...It all flows serene like the ricer of love's offering.....a journey we all go on and wonder what happens after death rings its bell...finding in true faith that eternity's loving embrace awaits and is not death at all....but the beginning of eternal life and intense love...a grace we have never experienced in our lifetime here, even in the most peaceful loving times....I love these original lines:

"To justify the succumbing to
Thousands of years
Of spiritual waves
Splashing consistently, unrelentingly
Upon 'the baptizer's' banks
Of holy grounds
And watery rituals
Promising
That eternity's loving embrace
Is not death at all"

A very spiritual flow just like a river in words..Love your mind's view of God and the Spirit of Love He exudes....Lovely, T.   Big hugs and kisses, xoxxx C

My Dear Brother Poet Tony,

Take me to the river banks
That run along my Soul
Immerse me in their "Holy Waters"
That I may love the World whole

Love you Bro,
Larry xxx
