~ THE HARMONY ~

~ THE HARMONY ~

It is in the harmony between man
And nature
Where beauty is perfumed
And glitters
As a twinkle
Where, with the frolicking of fairies
Waits as a flicker
Between morning's delight
And the momentary perception
Of the kindly shawl
That rides the supple shoulders
Of night's protection
Warming
The ever-morphing
Energy of life
And the seeds planted
To the benefit of men
Like Siddhartha
And his enlightenment
Revealing
In each season of the year
Its own
Particular
Form of beauty
An image never seen
But for a fleeting moment
When the penetrating eye
Is most discerning
And supported
By The Harmony
So inspired
Deep within
This most delicate ballet
Where ladybugs play
And the gentle caress
Of God's
Sweet breath
Comes alive....

I like the blend of romantic, and transcendentalism in this
work.

It takes the mind down a (much needed) detour from the
mundane realm of typical human affairs. Into a world where
the only impossibility is what man deems to be impossible.

great work brother.

Beautiful Tony... it has an old world romance feel to it.. Like actually a lord and a lady. and it has a characteristic... imagery that is lovely. I think you know
your way around alchemy.. because that is what this is.

So eloquently written...just love nature when it's described like a fairytale. I believe Nature is magical. 

Favorite lines 

That rides the supple shoulders
Of night's protection
Warming
The ever-morphing
Energy of life

I also liked the reference to, Siddhartha. I remember reading some of his work while in school many years ago, his writings were very influential in the early sixties or seventies. Excellent format and metaphors.

This speaks to me of those marvelous moments I sometimes experience when I am truly at one with nature, my surroundings and I am truly in the moment, know it, appreciate it and am grateful for it. I love those moments ...I don't know if this is what you are trying to portray but that's what I got from this work...marvelous Tony, thankyou...pinned 💕

Hi Tony, this is awesome...the yin and the yang... balance and harmony are the basic principle of wisdom... i. e. Everything in life blends together in balance and harmony; how nature responds to our doing- the giving and the taking...

My favourite :

" this most delicate ballet where ladybugs play and the gentle caress of God's sweet breath comes alive " ,

My Dear Tony,

In the air was an aroma
That brought "The Harmony"
It was the sweet breath of my Creator
Bringing perfect peace to me
