Thoughts in the night

Our life is a maiden head
Each day we weave a subtle thread.
Extracted of the flow, discarded in the ebb,
Stored to what we know seeded in a bed.

Our breath makes dance the canopy,
While we watch and wait and see
We view each action and its goal
What food to feed our hungry soul.

The web evolves thread by thread.
It is our bed and water shed.
And all the treasures that are sown,
Are blown away like dust is blown.

The process is of Gods own hand
To fuse again with sky and land.
To meet the need of cede to seed,
With only wonder of the deed.

Each moment wove of slouch and right
Shrouds the soul into the night.
So do not fear the ravens glance
Or the shadows of the dark advance.

It is a process with a goal,
To mature the flower of the soul.

Seymour - I would say that the flower of your soul is very mature.
Quite a thought maker.

Sy,
Your poetry has taught me much
And I am an apprentice of sorts
In fact others feel the same
According to what they report
But this verse is extraordinary
Not just for the poetry
But for the wisdom of the soul
And how it is expressed exquisitly
This is one of my favorites!

Sy,

tender are the words you weave,
for you would have us all believe,
that we should not fear Raven's glance,
but the process IS God's circumstance.

Well done, dear Sir.

A lesson here for all to heed
When struggling with the darkest night
He'll care for us and meet each need
He fashions good out of our plight

A lovely garden He has planned
And we the seed sown from His hand.

Excellent poem, Seymour! Very comforting!
Thank you!

Marge,
You know some times I feel very old, *L*.
Ohme,
Fear not your on your way
You will make a full bouquet.
Sunshine,
You have seen the light,
For you there is no night. *L*
Denise,
Since you have a large wingspan
For you he has a special plan. *L*
Elizabeth,
To me you do a word ballet
Leaving me in twilight grey
I watch your dainty rhymes of flight
And go to sleep with them at night. *L*

The difference between
mature and 'old',
is knowing when
to pen again,
the golden words
you weave so well ...
to capture us all
in your spell.
Weaving us
within the web
of your soul's tide
that has yet to ebb.

Marge,
Your little poem went to my head,
And from there I went straight to bed.
Thank you so much.
Hoot,
I don't know about that ruth
If you want to know the truth.
Nan,
To me you are a special fan a special nan
If you weren't a women I'd say, you da man.
