Cascading Love

By the breath of God frost is given ... Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? ... Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it? — Job 37:10; 38:22,29 Standing in the winter cold, tasting the small snowflakes that fall I think of you, my God ... and your boundless cascading love You revealed to me the secret treasures of the snow How each small act of kindness is like one little glistening snowflake that the wind blow Your love so heavenly dispersed across the whole earth Billions and billions of countless snowflakes, I open my mouth wide to taste So much heavenly love cascading down; I see the virgin snow shining all around, as more snowflakes of love fall to the ground Your godly wisdom shows us that the heart of man wax cold So You reveal the warmth of Your endless love in the form of the falling snow Your evergreen shower of white love covers the whole earth Each small snowflake represents an act of pure faith birth love given to each individual Billions and billions of souls, and billions of countless yet-to-be more Be fruitful and multiply God said: Let the whole earth abound with love I see the snowflakes of cascading charity shed abroad from the heavens above Such pure, falling white love Oh, how the cold feels so warm! So much infinite love cascading down Your love, my God, truly transforms And more snow, more snow ... more snowflakes keep falling out from the storm — like hoar frost manna falling down from the sky They’re heavenly tears of joy ... descending, gently melting in my mind Of whose falling, I now know the meaning why

This amazes me because, well, it just does. All those images, feelings, thoughts, everything that you covered happens in one moment, maybe less, to me. When I see the virgin snow piling, feel more still actively falling, I experience/feel all that you wrote. Amazing job. Two amazings. Hugs ... CayCay

Btw ... Romantic Warrior me is presently listening to a very cool love song called "Hypnotic Love" by Maysa. Check it out whenever you get the chance. Romantic Warrior me wouldn't give you any bad heart medicine. Love and more love always.

Ty, everyone for your gracious comments, and for upper management bestowing upon me this high honor, of which I am humbled by. Often, we see such acts of kindness, charity and love when the snowstorms come ... people helping one another ... moving stuck cars, shoveling neighbors and strangers walkways. It is a beautiful thing for the spirit to see such love displayed on a large scale. Just a thought. Love and much respect to all of the talented Poetesses and poets here at PSoup.
