The Essence

(http://promisingpoetsparkinglot.blogspot.com/2011/11/perfect-poet-award-week-56.html)

From the moment we open our eyes
To the instant that we sleep at night
A miracle unfolds in front of us
And yet we are oblivious

The clouds at dawn rise
And the sun rays shine through
Dew drops on flowers shine
And birds fly high into the sky

The inspiring beauty of morning
The ball of fire rising
A gentle wind blows by
Amazing , wondrous and spectacular

Looking at natures splendour
My mind cant help but wonder
If so captivating is your creation
Then how infinite must be your beauty

You are the essence of life
You create, sustain and destroy
The life force that enlivens everyone
Unborn, indestructible and immutable

Inconceivable, pure and eternal
I cannot fathom you
Yet I seek to know you
Every moment of the day

Shower your grace upon us
So that we revel  in your love
So that we may feel your presence
Every moment of our lives

Shower your grace upon us
So that we co-exist with nature
So that we learn to share and care
Every moment of our lives

    True, we need to say thanks everyday just for the fact that we are alive, for yet another beautiful day on earth! Loved these lines a lot, “You are the essence of life
    You create, sustain and destroy.”

    Super. 🙂

    Isn’t it amazing! Your words made me enjoy what we are and what we greet. We all come from the same source, before definition. 🙂
