Haiku 235 by Melba Christie


Once only should we ask

is forgiveness enough

Your heart will respond

Pure Thoughts


“All that we are is the result of what we have thought; it is founded on our thoughts; it is made up of our thoughts. If we speak or act with a pure thought, happiness follows us, like a shadow that never leaves us.”

– Buddha

Pure thoughts

rare like sea lions

drift among us

at times, they try to become embedded in our hearts

because we need them to survive in the wildness

of our times.

Deafening but ignored somehow

are the chants for peace

Powers of persuasion

bluntly lie to tie

us up, unable to move or feel

the true grief

of what is missing:

LOVE!

The purest thought of all

Despite the potentially dangerous situation

of more divisiveness and stubborness

I remain inside my world of hope

As I think of hate as fire

and love as water

I search in hopes

of finding

the fountains from which

we will allow the waters to flow

to heal our swollen hearts

and to allow for pure thoughts.

Love Will Teach Us All Things Or Will It?


Love will teach all things

it will teach us forgiveness

it will teach us to understand

the deep pain some people

suffer in silence

“A loving heart is the truest wisdom.”

 

Love will teach us all things

the things that truly matter in life

It will teach us to  accept others

It will teach us

“Peace is not a season but a way of life'”

It teaches us that we must learn

to cultivate human relationships

and the ability to live and work together

on this planet

because it is all we have.

 

Love will teach us  all things

like being faithful to ourselves

it will teach us

the greatest love of all

is learning to love yourself first

It will teach us that sowing just one seed

might bring us a love song strummed on a guitar

 

Love will teach us all things,

like Sam says to Molly

in the movie Ghosts,

“It’s amazing Molly,  the love inside, you take it with you”

It lasts forever. It is eternal.

It is aligned to the Divine.

Love teaches us all things in time.

 

 

 

 

Detached From the Soul


 

 

Nature took its course finally today

indifference replaces love

broken promises cannot be fixed anymore

that search for peace of mind totally undone

dreams’ shattered pieces are recycled into a mosaic

forever to be forgotten

and detached from the soul

Forgiveness?  No!
