My Silent Annunciation
There was no special star Arising at my birth ~ No Magi travelled From afar ~ No angel made A revelation ~ And yet that time’s Still sacred - ~ My life’s unique And only blessed ~ Silent Annunciation. ~ Annunciation, Fra Angelico
Discovering True Life in Appreciation
As if there were No connections . I shrivelled And died . To a careless world As a way of staying alive . Now I know more Of creation . I seek the art To thrive . In God In love . Discovering True life . In Appreciation. .
Life begins In God . In the power Of creativity . In the endless Love of infinity . In the growth Of our complexity . All life Begins in God. .
