day's awakening
eternal sunrise of soul
rejoice in glory.

gone the echoes and laments of days past
anew BE this mind, this heart, within soul cast
a child of the universe and Creation's grace
ever evolving within the depths of soul's place
confront and resolve be the calling command
within this faith held is libation's hand
nature's knowing and guidance true
life in new splendor brought on to you
shackled no more for I am free as the wind
silent no more for I am the thunderous storm
despairing no more for I am the dawning day
thirsty no more for I am lakes and rivers clear
lost no more for I am each guiding star
confined no more for I am vistas wide and far
hungry no more for I am bounty and harvest divine
this the awakened faith mine
the awakened
the awakened
the awakened faith mine.

  2. HI ROSEMARIE - another fellow blogger wrote of 'silence' this day. There was a time that silence roared and I needed to escape, and now, and for a long time, I am at peace in my silence, having surrendered to truth, and blanketing it all with love, perhaps forgiveness and I am my loudest in silence as I revel in the freedoms and mystery of faith, hope, and silent truths.
    Love Gail

  3. Dear Gail,

    Yes, dear friend... hear the silence, dance the stillness... Love on to you and yours,

    Rose Marie
