Reverence


Quote of the day: 
In reverent pauses, when we slow down and think about the gift of life, we may briefly touch humility. -Bryant McGill

What if life was all just a dream.
A fantasy within a trance.
Perchance, tributaries will eavesdrop.
With castles built in heavenly utopia.

Frosted sun squandering its light beam. 
To rivers flowing down stream. 

If not for the rain.
Of what use, would be the clouds.
If not for the brain.
Of what use, would be the protoplasm and core.
If not for peace.
Of what use would be war.

A knife piercing a fossil memory.  
If nothing lasts forever.
May I awake from life's reverie. 


Peace & Serenity always*

  1. This is like a bird-eye view of a transcendent meditation on the simplicity, beauty,perfection and longevity of nature. There is something bigger and more stable, and there is always a reason.

  30. Solid piece, and full of matephysical wandering. At times I hope not to awake, others I hope to live beyond the moment. If only we had a greater use for peace, you know. Hard to think of purpose in all things, even war.

  31. Very thought provoking. If life were a fantasy within a trance, I wonder if we would have the ability to alter reality.

  41. Cause and effect.... One pulls the other and one would not exist without the other. A stronger us there wouldn't be without the struggles and pain we so abhor. May our provoked thoughts birth change...

    ReplyDelete
  42. I enjoyed your poem very thought provoking as my mind wanders a bit. Could life just me a dream in the big scheme of things? Life is about dreams and dreams allow us to travel the multi-verse.

  48. What if life was all just a dream.
    A fantasy within a trance.

    Great opening lines blogoratti!It is leading to a lot of philosophical takes. One gets to be discussing with seriousness and of high stakes!

  49. Blessings....
    almost turned around, thought I was in the wrong space but the name clarified and assured i am where i intended to be. Is the change an echoing?

    Life is life my friend, you take each day as it come and remember in spite of its a blessing.

    peace.
