LIGHT OF CHRISTMAS



Let your light, sweet Jesus  
Into our souls’ crib to shine  
Bless our hearts, divine infant 
Your love, forever to enshrine!

THIRST FOR LOVE



My thirst for undying love I wished to quench 
Drinking from the source of your enviable lips  
Few droplets of nectar my soul was able to sip
That ample were though my craving to eclipse!

FEELINGS

FEELINGS


Feelings,
Masters of my destiny
Lords of my life
Strength of my dreams
Instigators of my actions

Burning fire you are 
Consuming my whole 
Being:
My heart
My mind 
My soul
My spirit,  
As you relentlessly
Demand: 
To be conceived
To be formulated 
To be understood
To be expressed!

A Herculean task it is,
I swear, 
Such an enterprise,
For how one could ever
Constrain, you, the unconstrained 
And mold you into:
Phonemes
Syllables
Words
Phrases
Sentences 
And still retain 
Your explosive 
Dynamism?
 
No language exists,
So vast
So deep
So accurate
So supple 
As to pay justice,
To your intensity
To your desire
To your beauty
To your love!

Thus, having no
Alternative, 
I turn to the only language
There is,
The one that the 
Cosmos speaks,
And
The universe alone
Comprehends:
The language of 
Harmony,
That we humans 
POETRY name
BUT 
Even then 
To describe you
I AM UNABLE!

AS PURE AS POSSIBLE








Help me, oh Lord,

The soul you have entrusted me with, 

As pure as possible to Thee, 

With 

My last breath, to surrender!

AN ADDITIONAL REASON






With,

Each breath I take, 

An

Additional reason, I find 

For 

Thee to thank, my Lord!

DAWN




Light’s resurrection

           Nature’s awakening
 
                                  Beauty's pride:

SEED OF CONCERN



My Lord,

Give us the will
To overcome our heartless indifference for
Those who suffer 

So as 

Able us to be,
In the ever-stretching desert of apathy, your  
Seed of concern to sow!

I AM CHARLIE-JE SUIS CHARLIE



Fall snow fall,
Over the moaning Paris’ ground,
Let your descending snowflakes a 
Healing blanket for the city
To weave
And
Charlie’s slaughtered cartoonists 
To enshroud!

YOU AND I ONE




You and I,
Looked at each other,
Eyes met 
Hands clasped 
Lips joined
Hearts beat in unison
Minds connected
Souls united

The “I” disappeared
The “YOU” vanished 
The “US” appeared
The “WE” was born

Inseparable
Undivided
Whole
One 
March forward

Ours the joy
Ours the happiness
Ours the life
Ours the destiny
Ours the bliss to
The end of 
Times!

SOUL EYES




As my eyes, with age, are losing their sight

And able I am not, clearly, anything to see 
 
My soul’s eyes, in wonder, are opening wide 

Praying, my Lord, a glimpse to get of Thee!

GOD'S GIFT

A miracle in waiting my friend you are
Possible it is all you wish to achieve 
    
Just

Use God’s planted talent in your soul 
He is expecting you, His gift to retrieve!

WHAT DOES THE LORD EXPECT




The appropriateness of our actions, the Lord

Expects from us to see


Not


The eloquence of our masterfully constructed

Verses, He to hear!

ONCE AGAIN




Once again, My Lord,
Towards Thy Wisdom I turn 
For
An answer to find

Why the many, instead of seeking
Thy eternal Bliss
 
Chose

With the pleasures of phenomena 
To bind?

HEAVENLY TUNE



Your soothing voice echoed love’s 
Heavenly tune

And  

In my fiery heart, at last, melody
Refuge found!

HER INDIFFERENCE



Certain it is,
That her rejection, untold suffering upon   
Him, would bring
 
But

Her indifference,
Would be the one, his condemnation to 
Unhappiness to sign!

SUNRISE

 
It is not in the east
That the sun rises, for me, my love

But

In the unfathomed beauty of your
Enchanting soul!

DESTINY AND I




Lost,

At a crossroad of my life,

Destiny I met

Smiling, she inquired where I was
 
Heading to 

“I am waiting for you to tell me.”

Was my reply!

When

Paved life’s way is, with the suffering of Man?

IS IT TRUE




Tell me, my Lord,

Is it true that seas and oceans, 

Created are by Thy tears 

Which 

Thee have shed, since the beginning
 
Of time 


For


All the suffering humanity has

endured

And

For all the afflictions of mine?

Pondering

As I ponder my weak bladder, you see.
I travel around the corner from thee.
Be careful if around the corner you go.
Please for your sake, watch for yellow snow.

UNDYING LOVE

 

The whisper of your passionate voice
Was amplified by my ruptured heart

That

Into ecstasy of undying love was thrown
And now can’t, from you, live apart!

Make me a prisoner of your blistering love

So

In the dungeon of your arms, my freedom
To find!
