Within galaxies
The mind of the Creator
From darkness evolve.

Thought as creation

Voluminous vortices
Holding to the light.

  1. your haiku brings me
    to the heights of eternal
    praise to the Mother...

    birthing to life and
    giving her milk, warmth, and love
    i am loved, i know


  2. The mind of the creator - thought as creation - something we cannot even begin to fathom, isn't it? Yet you have captured it here for us to consider with our weak human understanding. Thank you for elevating my thoughts this morning.

    Have a blessed weekend.

  3. Hello Rose Marie:)


    Fist of all let me thank you for a wonderful poem left as a comment in my blog. A lovely impromptu writing.

    Your above poem brings to my mind Genesis in the Bible. It is said that God created everything from darkness and a void. You remind me of the inscrutable marvels which we see every day including the sun, the moon, the stars and the functioning of the human body. We take these things for granted. I am reminded of a flower. Whether the flower is in your vase, or in a well maintained garden, or in a remote place where no one can see it, the beauty remains and does not diminish. It doesn’t matter if there is no one to admire it. It sings God’s omnipotence, omnipresence.
    It is only people who take these things for granted. Your beautiful poem is a reminder for us to pause and see the awe inspiring beauty lying all around us and admire God’s power and sing HIS praises.

    Have a wonderful day Rose:)

  4. W.W., such a delight to receive your visit and be graced by a responding haiku. This indeed is a blessed dialogue. Thank you ever so much.

  5. Dave, Thank you - knowing how much "food for thought" you serve, I am happy that I can add to your plate.

  6. Karen, "thought as creation" is becoming accepted in more and more scientific circles, now that technology has put forward discernible measurements. Esoteric is no longer so far afield.

  7. Joseph, and I quote you: "... reminder for us to pause and see the awe inspiring beauty lying all around us and admire God’s power and sing HIS praises." With you dear Joseph, I sing and in glory give gratitude for all HIS gifts bestowed in grace upon us.
