Where streams converge...

Free from demanding compressions
fleeting still,is the sliver of a moment
which brings together impulse imparted
where the absolute, and the eternal meet,
as tears of imperfection cry in streams
in the image of our most perfect creator,
why?...why to be in such favor,yet,made to suffer so?

The crucible of self,
can be a daunting place
but doubt not the fiery purpose,
as impure thoughts continue as a contagion
our fleeting moments become our eternal now...
where melancholy rides the back of depression,
spurred on by an ineffective spleen
as we traverse toward the spring of purifying waters...

Then the dawning shall brighten our shining purpose,
when heaven on earth shalt not be just a utopian dream
but,a new stream of enlightenment...

    A visual write that I find very well achieved with your wording! Your beliefs shine through loud and clear and you leave the reader with hope. Thanks for sharing, and for your comments on my latest. Yes, we need to forgive that is true. Still the presence of a Mosque, or even a temple or a church, presents a biased point of view, that reflects the division among religions. We need to realize we are one family under the same God. Until then, there will be no peace. Caroline. :)

    the usage of the spleen has a double meaning,which one being the obvious,as malice...but the other,is intended as an anatomical/biological metaphor,since the spleen itself,is an organ which streams red blood cells and destroys them,only to regenerate new ones...out with the old,in with the new (way of thinking) :)

    These lines really spoke to me. "as tears of imperfection cry in streams in the image of our most perfect creator," They reminded me of reflections of a time before. The emotional level we normally maintain through circumstnce becomes unable to control when in the presence of the light. Thank You for Sharing These Words~ Best Wishes to You and Yours~ Peace~ James
