Our Shadows Cast down, Quickly Drift Away / Carbohydrates / Shakespeare on Friday

The best of poetry
has much of this kind of thought.
It is the poetry that stirs the souls
rather than the senses of men.
It is the poetry of content rather than of form.
But most of all, from this level of thought
are born the aphorisms,
that strange kind of thought
that is both poetry and something more.
For it stirs the thinking as well as the feeling
and thus integrates the best
of the whole man.

– Franklin Merrell-Wolff,
Experience and Philosophy

On a beam of Light
We were born away.
In the Blink of His Eye,
The Whisper of God’s Voice
Called our name.

The twinkle of the stars at night
Is the Sparkle in His Eyes,
The evening’s soft breath,
His soothing lullaby.

What is without,
is within,
Space enclosed by a circle within a circle,
Of Life within Time,
Where one thing
leads to another,
From a Gift to Sacrifice,
From longing to Love,
From Forgiveness,
To beginning again.

When we are born away,
With Love In our hearts,
We are born again.

Ever so gently,
Close your tired eyes,
Rest, find Peace again.
The Heart of God beats from Deep within.
His Love will bring to your life
All the hope, all the desire, all the joy
You knew as a child.

You are still a child,
My friend,
And will always be.
A child of God,
Forever in His Grace,
Forever in His Heart,
Ever and ever deeply Loved.

Players, we, upon a stage,
A one act play,
Much like a day,
With not much time to stay.

That life is lengthy
Is a grand illusion.
Our shadows cast down,
Quickly drift away.

We shall all be gone
By the end of our day.
Time is not
A generous bequest.

And in what is brief at best
Much of life and living
Can become unreal,
And remain so.

But your heart can learn to sing again,
Your smile can brighten the day
Of someone who comes you way.
You can be brought into
The Bright Light of a new day.
