A Cup Runneth Over

When I hear the chirping of bizarre birds in the morning, And see the sun gently rising; golden rays adorning; And feel the graciousness of the almighty upon me, Who, by his abundant mercy, gave me a day to see; My heart overflows with joy like water from Angel-falls, From unknown, brightest heaven, for a fullness of life, calls...! Neither in riches did I crawl; nor in poverty, blaze; Health and wealth, like rhythm in a melody, filled my days; Love of kinsfolk, like honey from flowers, I did cherish, Sorrows and sufferings, though like moths appeared, did perish; Respect and reputation, like shadows, walked with me, Fears and panics, like flies before fire, fearfully flee...! I have my values; I live them; I find my goal attained; My body, mind and soul are nourished; I never feel chained; God-given potentials keep me young; I esteem my strengths, Each moment has its surprises; joys have no breadths and lengths; Mindfulness has been minding me; I am Zen in my deeds; Gratitude has become my concord; God sees to my needs...! 5 July 2022
