Merge with me

 

Abandoned buildings merge with me

Let me feel your presence

 

Let every new coat of paint we brush

Touch the hearts of a thousand fold

 

Let every ever new meal

Fill our bowls

And

Feed our souls

 

Where every cut of the knife

Is a slice closer

To the heart of the divine

 

Let the labor filled days be coated with God’s ecstasy

And the country side nights be dreamt next to thee

 

 

Let these abandoned buildings become a sanctuary

 

Where these memories will play

On the playgrounds of our minds forever

    Thank you, Bardia. Good to see your poet in action again. I particularly like the line, “Let these abandoned buildings become a sanctuary” It says so much and with such poignancy.
    As ever in Him,
