Great Un-manifest


An awesome power without form
In silent atoms slowly drawn
Sometimes pure and innocent
Or total evil, malcontent,

Its opposition holds it fast
Like Yin & Yang
Or Light and Dark

This presence in a sunrise felt 
In friendship's smile or anger's wrath
In mountain's height or oceans depth
The in and out of every breath

In every wind that stirs a leaf 
And every life, however brief
The constant earth, the shifting sand
All feel this mighty, gentle hand.

I had thought it was about God... and then reading your response to Andrea I guess I was right. I just love how there's so many intense statements and acronyms, all to end on those last two words... gentle hand. The same hand that formed the moon and stars is at the same time caring and gentle... very well penned!

I am glad that came through. When I was on our farm and closer to Nature I felt closer to God. He really does seem closer at hand through his natural marvels. Thanks for your encouraging comments I missed you.

this one is very mysterious, Suz. What inspired this?

It is really about our Creator...something that came through from meditation a few years back. Thanks for reading, dear.

'yeah...it happens all of a sudden...I guess so much of a woman's power is in her beauty. I hate that I have become 'invisible' to men when once I got wolf whistles most of the time...lol
