Searching

Seek and your life becomes clear,
Have no penitence, doubt or fear.
Unwind relax, and let the present flow,
The qualms, guilt and regret so
Worthless; they must go.
Now; thoughts free, no despair
No doubts, worries, to repair.
Be free, let go, yours words will prove,
You travel to a different grove,
Where fruits are pure and full of juice!
So write, create, have no excuse.
You have such stories to unfold!
Slowly, quietly, let the words be told,
Of tales of lives that have been sought,
In the language you were taught.

SINCE YOU TOLD ME THAT THIS WAS YOUR FIRST POEM, THIS MUST BE HAVING A SPECIAL PLACE IN YOUR HEART! THE TITLE IS VERY APT! WE ALL BEGIN OUR SEARCH WITH OUR VERSES, USING POETRY'S EVOCATIVE WORDS! AND IF WE GO TO THE GOSPEL OF St. JOHN, Chpt 1 verse 1, WE FIND THAT IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE - 'WORD', AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD, AND THE WORD WAS GOD! Best Wishes, - RAJ
A wonderfully commendable encouragement for all of us to 'write, create' with so much around us in this world of ours how could we not express our wonder. Thank you for reminding us Bob.
Wonderful, Great advice. Simply loved it. Warmest Regards Patricia
