Of owls and angels

Of owls and angels

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

May your heart be filled with bliss

"





















May your heart be filled with bliss

 Even in the ordinary

And with the fire

Nothing can be ordinary again

Smiling at your words

A smile that ripples like waves of magic through me

A connection so strong and alive

Even over these miles

I feel you closer than any around me here

Yes, words of owls and angels

Of God and higher things

Deeper things

More beautiful than a mind can imagine

Just moments ago I opened a book

Filled with ancient poetry and literature

And here is what I read:

O most noble greenness

You who take root in the sun

And who shine in radiant tranquility on the wheel

Whom no earthly excellence surpasses

You are enfolded in the embraces of divine mysteries

You glow like the dawn and burn like the flame of the sun”

How you come alive so deeply in the everything now

And I love to see you shine...

The owl is such a beautiful and mystical creature and to me as breathtaking as angels. Your words on this page glow with a divine radiance of their own, burnished by pure spiritual love and remember, what we give is returned to us many fold. I have been reading and re-reading many stunning lines in this poem but I especially loved these:

You are enfolded in the embraces of divine mysteries
You glow like the dawn and burn like the flame of the sun”
How you come alive so deeply in the everything now
And I love to see you shine...

May love and light and joy be yours always, dear Craig.

A prayer, a ballad, a loving reverie. Gentle, graceful, ethereal words and images..."words of owls and angels"-" of God and higher things"...the wise and the spiritual..the deeper love- "the fire"- that changes everything and goes beyond time and place so that "nothing can be ordinary again". Master Class work. Kudos!
