HERE AND BEYOND
There is something beyond the mountains
Beyond the sun, beyond the stars,
beyond my burning, longing heart;
A yearning for Cosmos to fill the soul
with its song so pure and serene.
Sounds from oceans, lakes and forests
fill us with joy and peace,
how can there be more beyond?
I just know there is.
Looking at the complexity, the beauty of a rose
residing on the table as I write,
Does it also long for more or does it know;
The wonder of the Whole.
May I never be blind to the universe
held in a flower, a tree
nor to the glory of a human heart.
I feel the greatness of the Whole
is beyond the understanding of our minds.
Still, it is there, giving its gifts each day.
