Hallelujah - From the Mouth of Babes - with Silent One

The Guardian
		Melodic lullabies echo	
		As heart strings strum secret chords
		As transcendental images appear
		Stargazers are lost for words
		Kaleidoscopic Illuminations
		Paint the sky in optimistic light
		Hope descends in serene silence
		Floating through shadows of the night
		Dancing spirits move to dulcet tunes
		Shadows can be seen against the moon
		Oh Redeemer do you hear their call?
		Take with you those who have gone too soon
		Hallelujah- Hallelujah 
		Hallelujah- Hallelujah
From the mouth of Babes	
		To hallowed ground we trip hand in hand
		A new chapter to embrace in its splendour
		Ring out voices on notes sweet and clear
		To the universe our souls will surrender
		Fragments of the past spun into flags of freedom
		Our Victory March erased from strife
		Away with the racing winds ever so bold
		Singing Hallelujah to hail a new Life
		The lighter the air the higher we climb
		No more the fetid chitter chatter
		To the fading strains of a repetitive tune
		Not broken -We rise - We matter
		Hallelujah-Hallelujah
		Hallelujah-Hallelujah
The Guardian
		Cyber conducts no hateful words
		Whisper soft winds only of love
		Ring euphonious echoes of Rapturous joy
		While Heaven beckons from above
		Finally free from those who judge,
		Eyes glow as laughter begins to vibrate
		Running together through fields of freedom
		Babes hum rhapsodies that liberate.
From the mouth of Babes
		Jubilous our shouts as onward we go
		Skipping, laughing as each other we chase
		Heaven embraces as we run to her arms
		Soothed we feel in her cocooned embrace
		Dissipate grey clouds from this Promised Land
		Our Hallelujahs peal out sweet and light
		Celestial Symphonies reach a crescendo
		As the stars twinkle lustrous tonight
		Hallelujah-Hallelujah-Hallelujah-Hallelujah

Acknowledgement:
My deepest appreciation to Silent One for his contributions and collaborating with me to bring this message of Hope to parents and loved ones who have suffered the extreme sadness through loss of their innocent children and the dark despair that follows. 

Tragic as their loss is, this poem is to offer solace and perhaps help them understand their child has not totally gone. In ‘Hallelujah - From the Mouth of Babes’, this is what I envision it to be beyond the void of criticism and bullying, where Ethereal beings welcome them back to another innocent realm where they readily resume childlike exuberance. Perhaps, they will return in another time away from their dark experience.’

For my friend Kate Pennington an amazing lady dedicated to helping the youth in ‘Beyond a Joke’ Anti-Bullying Center, Australia, for whom I wrote ‘Starry Starry Night’ some time ago.

Maria ... as you mentioned this piece in your comments on SO's poem today ... I went to look it up. I am so moved by this beautiful write. I can only empathetically imagine the pain but I instinctively know there can be no greater loss. The serenity painted in these words of the beyond are indeed comforting. An amazing collaboration and so perfectly matched! And I abolutely love the music you have chosen. Always a beatiful song... but on a violin ... just wow!

Thank you Judy for your visit and your comments. It is sad indeed when this terrible loss happens. I just hope that the people left behind can take solace in what I tried to portray...Maria

Maria - Little can compare with art in acting as a balm to the sadness of loss, particularly of a child. For myself it was music - Ravel’s ‘Pavane for a dead infanta’. Your poem takes a situation of great sadness and transforms it to acceptance and optimism. This is only effective because of the art with which you created it - the quality of words, images and form, and harmonics that produce sympathetic emotional and aesthetic vibration. Congratulations on this beautiful, valuable creation.

A gorgeous poem with glorious words, phrases and lines! I don't know how you do it (write like a master poet), it's hard to envision the way you do. And bravo to Silent One as well. Loved the music too!

So you did. Thank you so much Demetrios, both for the faith and the lovely comment. Its people like you that keep us here, and for that I must say a huge thank you my dear friend...Maria. xxx Ps I'm sure S1 has already been in touch. I am so grateful to him for collaborating on this sensitive issue, and making this poem what it is. Spoken from the heart
Date: 7/9/2017 5:22:00 AM
Yet again, another excellent poem, this time in collaboration with S1, though I have a feeling that you, Maria, were the instigator! This is touching, meaningful and written from the heart. The topic chosen is a modern world sad reality; the way you present it gives hope eternal to those who suffer through no fault of their own. ~ Regards // paul

Thank you Paul so much. he is an incredible poet, and I knew that neither of us were going to be able to match styles, so thats why I split parts.This poem is going to be shared in a news letter going around Australia, so hoping its going to touch many families.Frankly im quite sick of the hate going around this site, and I wanted to pick the one that I collaborated with, well. I feel that I made the right choice . Always appreciate your visits and kind comments Paul...Regards Maria
