Eternal Soul

The soul's forever—
As an eternal spirit.
Leaves this mortal coil . . . 
	 Again to the spirit world 
And home to Heaven’s Kingdom!

I'm a 5

Frail firelight flickers
on moon-pale skin, rosary -
fingers strung with stars,
small sparks of eternity.
The end comes with pure beauty.

Marks the end of life—
Transformation now begins.
The soul exits the Earth’s plane . . . 
	     A new journey’s underway . . . 
Heaven’s the destination!

Western Skies


in bare hands you tilt 
my earth to seek western skies
spirits set the sun
bare feet chase red jasper realms
from black-onyx sky

The discussion point—
I Be, I Am, I Exist.
Being is presence.
	 Philosophers Rejoice, Yes . . . 
The mortal plane is confirmed!

Positive Mindset

Never say never,
unless it’s to the Devil.
Keep your chin up man.
Have a positive mindset.
Trust in the Lord and yourself.

The Smile of God

Sunlight on my face
Radiance that covers me
His smile brings healing
More exquisite than the sun
Bestowed on his beloved

I don't deserve it
Darkness often allures me
I am not perfect
Simply because I am His...
He dazzles me with HIS smile

Eileen Manassian Ghali

Mattew 5: 44 - 46
44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get?

scattering ash clouds
i hum your favourite tune
rhapsody in blue
i look out at the calm sea
it seems to blend with the sky

A Spiritual Christmas Gifts to You

              A jolly old man
  Who makes your wishes come true
            A joy of Christmas
    Brings such special gifts to you
      She waits for him patiently

          Underneath the tree
  Sprinkled with faith and hope too
               My love is a gift
     Two are kindness and giving
       Three is a promise to you

           I give you my heart
        Filled with a decoration
             Now and forever
         A sweet communication
         Near to me or far apart

Imaginary Fear

when the light of youth

twinkles far above you

and death is just a breath away

you fear you'll just follow the same

stale breadcrumbs from life to life.

Tanka Very Much

     Tanka Very Much

Thirst dries the desert

Drinking fills the passion depths

Girl trembles with cup

Water flows up from deep wells

More than thanks are on the lips

Namaste namasti

Teaching what I learnt
From heroes and 
The known and 
I owe each each of you 
Which I know are not 

Namaste my gems-
Smashing spread and 
light my pen.
Shalom to you all.

A Forest Child

Tree seen in forest
Is one of many thousands
Showing its branches
Now to me, a forest child:
One needing Christ's redemption

Hard Workers

Flying souls, adrift in a sea of silver clouds. Their wings brushing God, carrying prayers to Heaven; messengers for the faithful.

Blessed Mother And The Lamb Of God

Mother of our Lord 
in your womb the Lamb of God
pain and suffering 
He knew He had to endure  
our redemption through His death

Blessed herbs cut cords,
Short circuit spells, cast off for 
Clockwise voyages

From fire elementals
The dead receive their summons

I was given the prompt of writing a tanka with these words or phrases: 
elementals , blessed herb , short circuit

Free Will

most everyone
assumes that we have free will
I guess I mostly agree
but what free will exists when
we can't tell salt from sugar?
maybe acts of charity. . .

All My Relations

in the sweat lodge
black elk solemnly says
welcome stone people and
thanks for sharing heat with us. . .
