It must have been a good day for the devil, for he granted me one last wish or wishes, seeing that none except one with excuse Christian, were willing to bail me out. I may write one more poem, one more article and story, and a blog, and so before I leave you in eternal darkness, one more of my glowing embers.


A precious gift from poet’s quill,
When like the blooms of rose,
Or Jasmine, all of those,
A fragrant sense my nostrils fill,
When like a kiss of mother dear,
Cuddles me in arms so near,
And strokes my hair,
Of memories near,
When brook and stream do wet bare feet,
Kisses, bushes, shady trees,
Long grasses trees of willows bent,
My lover in my arms does sleep,
Hallowed halls in silence rest,
Candles burning in a niche,
Whispers where a quiet voice,
And angels with me rest,
Where hills and fields aglow in dusk,
Where bock and zebra graze,
And eagles fly,
And all is God in trust,
Where children’s tears I wipe away,
Enfold them in my arms,
Still their hurt and fears,
And find them happy play,
Where rascal devils I address,
Of souls are kin to me,
Fathom deeper, higher realms,
More wisdom then I’m blessed,
When God in kindness visits me,
And all his kin that he create,
His glory witness in my heart,
His stars and heavens let me see,
Dear poet dear, when you spill ink,
And scratch a note to me,
In words I understand,
You lead me on to feel and think,
Devils, Gods, may hold your hand,
Angels, demons, common man,
Further help us see the light,
And help us understand.©01/11/2009

You have 'simply' stated that which philosophers cannot convey in words that are clearly understood. And YOU are simply a great poet!

God bless you. Kathy

Jasmin you are ever the philosopher,
with an empathic heart and soul;-)
Reviewed by Eugene Williams
interesting how you mixed several philosophical and bibical precepts into an emtional walk through thought. Hummm
Reviewed by John Flanagan
Simple it may be, Jasmin, but it is filled with rich images of the world interpreted with feeling and longing.
