Being

Poem By Theodora (Theo) Onken

The day arrived without much pomp or circumstance
....With clouds curling and dipping 'cross the heavens
While the sun raised her gentle arms in greeting - with warmth
......The river below flowed in a perfect rhythm
......And it's sound was such a comforting anodyne
....'Twas absolute music to the denizens ears
The tree's - graceful leaves swayed in anticipation- -
......Moved by the gentle southern breeze
....................The deer were grazing
....................The squirrels were playing
....................The raccoons were dancing
....................The rabbits were romancing
And the birds, yes, the birds were feathering- -
......While fragrances emulated through the summering air
......With hints of Jasmine & Honey Suckle- -
......Such a marvelous ambience - created this day
....As upon yet another STAGE of our life- -
......Where living and breathing and giving thanks
....................Are as they should forever be
....................Grateful for waking up
....................Alive for yet another day
........................'To Simply Be'

Gorgeous! Absolutely gorgeous! ! It's Wish-I'd- Written-It gorgeous! ! ! It is such a huge blessing to wake up to this world God has created for each and every one to enjoy to the height and depth of our souls. Which verse is the one that rang my chimes the most? All of them. Which image lingers the most? All of them. For innovative use of a word- -I would pick this one: And the birds, yes, the birds were feathering- - That is pure jewel-writing!

(((This Thing Of Ours)))

In the twilight of this quiescent moment-
I peruse this thing of ours-
Querying this palpable abtruse connection-
Am i deluded or wrongly perceived by the stars?

(((After The Rain)))

I missed you the other day
When the dew left its diamond glitter upon the grass
And the squirrels and frogs were frolicking merry
When the silence of daybreak calmed

(((Advent)))

It was in the Dawn of new beginnings
In a field so full of you
Armoured bouquets of Love
Covered by Heavens baby blue;

(((Early Eve Of Remember))) !

It t'was in the early eve of Remember- -
Before twilight had come around...
Where i found you with a basket of love so true...
And in the air t'was a melody of new loves sweet sound! ;

(((Beloved)))

An ancient river carries your name-
In silver caverns so deep-
A Princess sits crying her heart out-
In the depths of sorrow, she continues to weep.

(((An Aubade)))

</></Oh such bitter sweet regret-
Comes the breaking of dawn...
'Tis much too soon, my darling
For you shall soon be gone;
