Whispered Winds on Hallowed Ground

Whispered Winds on Hallowed Ground

A Poem by Bright Ocean Star
"

Have you ever been to visit a monastery or a spiritual retreat center and felt the incredible sense of peace that just permeated the air right down to your bones? These Godly places still exist....

Whispered Winds on Hallowed Ground

 

Whispered winds trip

Across hallowed grounds clipped

Peace descends like a blanket

Where evil forces, blind

Cannot find

Amidst their roaming

Tries

 

Spiritual force fields

Shield those souls

Who live and

Work amid

The sanctity foaled

Meditation

Prayer, love, Peace

 

Horses munching

Grasses green

Special havens

Sight

unseen

 

God’s chosen

Servants fare

Retreats from life

To heal the strife

That internalizes blight

Healing of the spirit

Respite

 

Monks and Nuns

Work and pray

Daily devotions

Make their way

Silence streaks

Peace

Transcends

All iniquity

 

There are special places

Such as these

Hidden away

In countryside glens

Like precious jewels

To be sought

Blessings found

For those who are called

To seek

They are the

Spiritual Retreats

 

They heal the spirit

Soothe the soul

And Strengthen

weary hearts

For life’s stresses

That threaten

To pull us

Apart

 

They are worth

Their weight

In Gold

yes they are!! worth far more than gold ;) i have been to a retreat ..and to a monastery ..both held unique and spiritual experiences for me ..but i have found "spots" out in nature that gave to me what your poem reflects ..when we find ourselves in such a "hot spot" one absolutely feels it ..there is a sense of responsibility one feels to protect it and savor that blessed peace that only comes from God ..your poem has bent my mind in a fine direction this morning ... so i would give you A + without hesitation :))

I liked how you defines this place. Giving beauty and blessing to the place.
"They are worth
Their weight

I agree with the above lines. People who serve, not require profit. Are the Angels upon the earth. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

I myself, have never been to a monastery or a spiritual retreat center. I do understand they're a place where people can find retreat from the stresses of life. If people benefit from them, I'm sure they're worth it. I would leave the poem as is.

not sure i would mess with it...sometimes better what just comes out naturally...i like the feeling of this...regardless of the strife in the world...if we have a calm spirit, we are prepared for whatever happens...the restless souls are the ones who constantly fret about tomorrow, or if there will even be a tomorrow....

i read this and thought about Harrison's "What is life?" and "my sweet lord"---

good write, Anne.
