MY PEACEFUL CORNER
With sky at night, twinkling stars and moonlight
I sit in this corner of the Universe
Observing in awe, nature’s creation
Somewhere across the land
At some distant village
A bush fire is started
I pray that human life will be spared.
My eyes drift back to the sky
There’s a milky way
I see a shooting star
And quickly make a wish
I hear crickets around me
And frogs in a nearby stream
Now and again a dog barks in the neighbourhood
I see fire flies with their gorgeous green flames
Flashing here and there
They are beautiful to watch
I feel peaceful and content
In this corner of the Universe
Here there are no modern roads
Just plenty of foot paths
For villagers as they go about their daily chores
Cattle, sheep, goats and horses are now resting
Quietly in their kraals.
Dew is now beginning to form on this lush green grass
It is time for me to go in and rest my body
There’s silence in the village now
For the night beckons all to rest now
TRAVEL WITH ME — FLY WITH ME
In my mind’s eye I fly above
Way up into the clouds
As I go through I see below me
Beautiful white clouds
All flat and forming a lovely white fluffy soft blanket.
I look up and see a glorious peaceful blue sky
The sun shining and a feeling of harmony overwhelming me
I go beyond — floating gracefully
Searching for lands, planes I have not seen
I see further below me
Seemingly creating a plane of their own
I come across a land of flowers
Flowers of different vibrant colours
Masses of fields, stretching as far as the eye can see
All gorgeous colours of the rainbow
And stunning colours outside the rainbow scheme
Such beauty, such wonderment
I look at mauve, blue, pink
Indigo — my eye is just overwhelmed
I am on my own in the midst of this
Wonderful bliss — such marvellous colours
It is a round and yet flowery land — I am happy here.
I now look up and I fly further up
Wanting to see more
I come to a land of BLUE
It is very peaceful here
There are blue buildings — centres
There are hospitals — blue hospitals
There are places of learning — blue learning centres
This is a lovely misty blue I see around me
It is very peaceful here
I go to the place of learning
I know that I have to learn to be still
Peaceful and harmonious
I thank the Knowledge around
I thank the Invisible and Visible Presence
I see patients and doctors — ALL IN BLUE
I am thankful and I wake up with a jolt
Someone just opened the door and I am back to reality.
LOOK AROUND YOU
Somewhere — with an orange glow of a sun setting
Look my friend — beyond the haze of nightfall
There comes tranquility — for the day’s humdrum
Is but disappeared.
In the silence of the trees, the animals taking refuge
For all night — and the nocturnal getting busy
For theirs is not the day — For Day and Night
Are but an illusion to my eyes.
With mind’s foresight and power — all can penetrate
The yet — seemingly incomprehensible
But my friend, hear and listen –
Go deep within your Being — your Soul — You will find
Inner peace and all that you search for.
In your quest for wisdom and love
You will find stillness and knowledge
That will illuminate all of your being
Let the night be, amongst other times,
The time that you can find stillness
By opening your mind, heart and soul.
And do not forget to look after the temple.
Your GOD/ALLAH given temple
For this is the most important
Vehicle in your present life
While you are on planet Earth.
Look after yourself, love yourself
Have sweet dreams and be embraced by love
From the Universe for you are an aspect of the Universe
And you are the Universe of your Soul — BEING.
Listen to the rhythm of your Soul, your Breath
In times of weariness, just for a second, know that
You are never alone — there is always love around you
Only if you would just open your eyes and look around you.
There is so much abundance in all of nature’s presence
Open your eyes and your heart, everything around is alive
It is energy that will interact with you whenever you
Open your mind, your heart, above all YOUR INNER EYE.
Take care now, Love yourself with the Universe’s Blessings.
Thank you for taking time to read these words. Stay Blessed.
