Each Spirit’s Revelation

The Spirit Newly Woken
. Those words Their active . Generative Power . Moving The soul . Again and again Hour by hour . As if newly Spoken . As if the spirit Was newly woken . From a mindless Sleep . Now soared And plummeted . To endless Deep. . Image by TheOtherKev from Pixabay
Beyond Yet Found Within
The spirit sighed For transcendence Finding at last The God who waited Beyond infinity’s grasp Beyond the beauty of sunsets Whose love remained Found within.

Before the Beginning
. Before The beginning . Did the Spirit Still dance? . And was the breath Of life . The Word Whose echoes . Still now Sing? .
The Spirit’s Reformation
. I’ve had my day of death My day of grief’s initiation I’ve seen the spirit’s Reformation All I ask Is a daily celebration To awe The rebel ego To prayer and service Jubilation. .
Bridge Between Two Worlds
~ Bridge Between two worlds . Earthly Heavenly . Light And darkness . The human Being . Poised As body and spirit . Contemplating All that is made. ~ 'Vitruvian Man' Leonardo da Vinci
Source Of All
. In the beginning I call . On the one Who is from the beginning . The source Of all enlightenment . Truth Whose spirit . Hovers Creatively . Over all Our dark waters . Whose word Is with . God And was . God From the beginning. . Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay
