'Listen' has the exact same letters as 'Silent'. Coincidence?

A Poem for Weekend Reflection

Rainbows

Take my hand. Come to this vast and endless sea.

Observe the universe of unimagined possibility.

Where, with all the radiant beauty of the rising sun,

An endless river of dreams and thoughts come from.

Now come to the top of the falls. Sit with me a while.

Lean back, relax, - think thoughts that make you smile.

Reach out as far as you can and catch a dream.

Hold it to your heart. Does it make you beam?

You’ll be so happy when this dream comes true!

And what it takes is faith in God and then you,

With that dream in heart, plunge to the pool below.

There, to rest with dream in hand. He’s made it so!

Through the mist on the tranquil pool I see the sun

And the smile on your face, you’re sure having fun!

Look up to the sky! See the rainbows overhead!

Or do you see their reflections on the pool instead?

Now that the dream you’ve chosen is become reality

You’ll be drawn into the stream of “HIS STORY”.

Hang on to this dream too long and be swept away

Or take my hand and dream another dream today!

When you become complacent and you know best

With a gentle hand He will show you the rest.

He will dip into that sea of possibility and show

Love in your life beyond what you could ever know!

As the rainbow on the pool images one above

God has created you in His image with His love.

Waste not your life in the future or the past. Write

Of the witness in your life -- His love and His light!

Take my hand. Come to this vast and endless sea.

Observe the universe of unimagined possibility.

Where, with all the radiant beauty of the rising sun

An endless river of dreams and thoughts come from.

La Vita Nuova

La Vita Nuova

In that book which is
My memory . . .
On the first page
That is the chapter when
I first met you
Appear the words . . .
Here begins a new life

“A boat beneath a sunny sky” by Lewis Carroll

A boat beneath a sunny sky,
Lingering onward dreamily
In an evening of July —

Children three that nestle near,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Pleased a simple tale to hear —

Long has paled that sunny sky:
Echoes fade and memories die:
Autumn frosts have slain July.

Still she haunts me, phantomwise,
Alice moving under skies
Never seen by waking eyes.

Children yet, the tale to hear,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Lovingly shall nestle near.

In a Wonderland they lie,
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die:

Ever drifting down the stream —
Lingering in the golden gleam —
Life, what is it but a dream?
