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.

WOW! WOW! And WOW! This is very powerfully written! I love it! There are only a few times in life when we get blessed by such a connection as you beautifully describe here. Many imaginative ways to SHOW instead of tell.

Thanks a lot always my dear friend.
Though the quote from the mystic at the end might give the impression that the entire work is a praise of God, I believe the one to whom the words are addressed is another person. While I cannot say whether the love professed is entirely of the spiritual, platonic sort, I believe there is a highly spiritual quality to it. The imagery is beautiful. Would that all of us could have such words spoken to us. Well done.
