Peace for the Soul

A common space for harmonic peacemakers

 

needful things

 

i stood facing the East

my longings bared

and upon the surface

of my consciousness

seeking an understanding

that would fulfill

 

there were things

feelings

not only of body,

mind,

but of heart

 

needful things

 

we endure the lack

with hopes

that our cries are heard

while the tears of despair

stain our hopeful light

and pricks the bladder

that holds the air

of wantings

and desires

 

we are the ones . . .

for sure we are,

yet we cling

we let loose

we cling

we let loose

in our cyclic understanding

of our abilities

wedged betwixt the teachings

of our faith

 

needful things

 

yes,

matters not whether it is perception

nor illusion

the impact is the same

and when the Sun rises to greet me

i only wish to hear the utterance

of a name

i can call on

that requires not my patience

or the holding of etheric wishes

to greet me

where life’s authenticity resides

 

i am not hiding

yet there are shadows seeking

to engulf me

and what little light i see

about me

within me

 

and as a knight

in the night

i draw my sword of discernment

dashing it’s blade

slashing at my own

selective

and elective delusions,

those that i see

in the deceptive

reflective light of the Moon

 

waxing or waning

 

needful things

 

shall i be the Champion

of my own making ?

am i the Wizard

of this Soul Spoken Alchemy

the Masters,

the Mystics

and Sage speak of ?

is love truly the answer ?

and what does Romance have to do with it ?

and do i truly understand

the demands upon my call

for my evolution

beyond the presence

of what i call light ?

 

i stand in the Halls of the Holy

the moment of “NOW”

OPEN . . . .

willing

and ready

as best i can

knowing

as a man

and as a child

reconciliation

is the compelling nature

of my desirous essence

and suspect presence

 

so this is the moment

here i am

offering that which i own

the nothingness

the emptiness

that i may be filled

as i spill my request

for

 

Blessings

while Confessing

and the offering of Prayers

 

yes, i have

done it all

and still i have these

 

needful things
