I tasted the dawn of promise

Life is so much more than ME

I looked into the eyes of BEING

It encompasses all of creation

All of which cries out for notice

Notice of what requires thought

Thoughts that edify heart and soul

Souls that need spiritual embracing

Humanity hungering for food and love

Landscape that needs careful tending

Animals that we are all responsible for

Our planet and all of its elements are

Our concern, we need to be aware

Of all things besides ME that has needs

We are obliged to do more than complain

Expand our vision to include universe

Take our minds off SELF to improve US

Inspire each other to see with new eyes

Open our ears to sounds besides music

Come out of our cocoon to see the world

A world that is dying for lack of our care
While we complain our cubbard is bare

A very unselfish poem, Eileen. It gives us directive on the preservation of our planet and guides us with instruction on
co-op ecology and environmental awareness. A welcome write that places the kettle of Self on the back burner.

Spot on.... Just wish those in power would agree and help do what we need.

Eileen! I, too, am struck by the snychronicity of your poem's message with that of a huge biography of Mother Theresa, which I've almost finished listening to. thanks for helping us to turn our attention to where it is needed most. Dawn

You pen with exceptional wisdom and compelling poetry; you put our (trivial) problems into perspective in the grand scheme of things. BRAVA!

This is just erie. I woke up this morning feeling depressed with sore muscles. I said to myself, "this day is all about me and I don't want it to be! I want to get my mind off of myself." Your poem put things in perspective. I should read this everyday. Fantastic write, Eileen.

Noble and worthy sentiments expressed here, Eileen: "Give and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, overflowing and poured into your lap" is one of my most favourite scriptures... sounds like champagne, don't it?! :)) Feels like it to!! LOL Kate xx

Don't really get the picture's correlation, but then, I don't much like photos on poems anyway. Your poem, now, that's another thing altogether. I agree with you about a world without care, and we here in America are blamed for most of the uncaring, when the fact is if all the world cared and did as much for the world as we do, there would be a lot less problems. Yes, we polute, but we also try to clean it up. Not so the hate-filled third-world countries and leftover communists in Russia who polute BIG TIME without the world on their asses. Boggles the mind. Sorry to get into a mini-rant.

Truly it is Love ad Compassion that is in short supply these days Eileen, and it is up to You and I and Others to redress the balance !
This composition is a clarion call to the Faithful, to actually demonstrate their committment to aiding our planet and its dejected inhabitants !
The cyclonic picture indicates the turbulence and volatility in our world !
Reviewed by George Carroll 1/23/2006
When we empty ourselves for others in compassionate and loving care. God fills our empty cupboards with His love that He knows we will share. Most edifying poem for all of us to heed and practice.
