  Song of Hope – Shernaz
 
doors and windows rattle
chilling gusts enter through chinks
as huddled under blankets, I listen
to lashing rain and thrashing wind
the only guests on this April dawn...
 
Few souls stir out in such fury.
 
Then I hear it. Faint at first,
slowly swelling in sweetness
-  the thrush’s song of joy and hope
 
Song of Hope – Avril
 
In the world of chaos around me,
with uninvited thoughts filling my mind,
I can only pray that
my own inner space
will always be filled with light and joy
and that all of mankind
will drink from the well
of love and compassion
so freely given by the Creator of all.
 
Tapestry
 
huddled under blankets
in the world of chaos around me,
I listen to the lashing rain and thrashing wind -
few souls stir in such fury.
 
Doors and windows rattle.
Chilling gusts enter through chinks
like the uninvited thoughts that fill my mind -
the only guests on this April dawn!
 
And then, as I pray,
I hear it -
the thrush's song of hope,
faint at first, filling my inner space
with light and joy
 
Which slowly swells in sweetness
so that all mankind
may freely drink
from this well of love and compassion
given by the Creator of all.

Comment Seshu, you have supported our efforts right from the start with your comments and appreciation. Avril and I value that greatly. Always grateful.

I had posted a reply yesterday along with the one to Padmaja, but for some reason it didn't get published so am sending this again.
