Heart  Thread for Short Poems
Figured I'd make a thread for some short poems. If anyone has anything sweet... feel free to share!

My first one...

The inner divinity in its infinity is radiant.
Its waters are vast. Its origin unknown.
The great mystery pervades creation.
Its rhythms are flawless. Its heart beats for eternity.
The Light conceals Itself to reveal Itself.
It's the essence of goodness and source of all truth.
The Light is you. The Light is me. The Light is all there is.

RE: Thread for Short Poems
Thank you for sharing your poetry, Henosis. I think it is quite clever and communicates the Law of One in a neat way. I especially like "The Light conceals Itself to reveal Itself."

I've moved the thread to the Artistic Endeavors forum. Also, there is another poetry thread here, in case you weren't aware. Just sharing. Smile

RE: Thread for Short Poems
Recollect

we float like a million chinese lanterns
against the salt-strewn canopy

sparks of divinity
housed in paper shells

nearly indistinguishable
from our forebears

eager to burn

we do in death
remember eternity

You get what you concentrate upon.

RE: Thread for Short Poems
This Poem is Short
So is God
If it was Long
It would be Man
It is thought, therefore it is.

Nature is Everything
Everything is Nature

Nature is all I see,
as I look around me;
the moment contains love,
unity reigns above;
relax and watch the show,
exult in all you know.

"I am all that has been, and is, and shall be..."

RE: Thread for Short Poems
The Setting Sun

So what can I do now
But follow the setting sun
Smoldering at the edge of day
And brilliant in its final hour
Bulging like a bursting heart
As it slowly sinks with
Coppery passion and quiet longing
I can feel the last, long
Golden rays beckon
With sad fingers
My life revealed somehow
Such as it is
In the evanescent light
And with one crimson flash
The sun plunges and disappears
And I know that time has
Caught up with me as the
Light fades to gray
And stars begin to form 
Out of the darkness

RE: Thread for Short Poems
Scooped

two men came
to my door
asked where
I’d been

their sunglasses
made me nervous

I told them
the truth

they asked for proof
so I showed them
the scars
below my knee

one leaned down
traced the three dots
with his finger

Orion?
the other asked

he shook his
head and smirked

Cygnus

You get what you concentrate upon.

RE: Thread for Short Poems
unnecessary association between enlightenment
and physical inaction.

young, virile enlightenment
is surely far closer to the truth.

Q: Is there no end to self-discovery?
M: As there is no beginning, there is no end.
