MORNING WALK


I couldn't take a walk today
For a dam broke in the sky
And flooded all creation
With rain-storms rushing by.

So I went to roam instead
Through meadows in the mind
And found forgotten flowers
On hillsides I once climbed.

Within there is a universe
As boundless as the one we see
Divine Mind, in us, infinite
Where, rain or fair, we wander free.

  1. This is so beautiful. I want to copy it and include this poem in a letter I am getting ready to send my mother. She does not get out and she has a walker to get around in her apartment. I think she would relate to the Divine Mind in us. Your poem reminds us to rejoice in beauty all around us including inside our minds.

  5. Dear Margie,

    To you so fair of heart
    From within a beauty to start
    A morning walk you do share
    And known is God's loving care
    Words to greet this morning sweet
    And here our hearts this moment meet.

    Thank you for a delightfully inspired "Morning Walk."

  7. Oh Margie... this is so incredibly wonderful... a boundless universe for sure... so much star gazing to do when peering inside, and at times discovering a few black holes too :)

  18. Such a good and powerful thing to know - that we can create our own fields to travel in, even when others are not available to us. A poem of hope.

  19. Hi TechoBabe
    Thanks for your kind words and I am flattered that you want to send a copy of my poem to your mother...that is perfectly fine with me & I really hope she enjoys it!
    Sometimes all we have is the Divine Mind to show us many beauties when we cannot get out to enjoy all the glories of nature!
