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...

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!

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.
