                Shangri-la

My life of late seems so complete,
Wrapped in a package of love so neat.
But has brought me, to an impasse of dwell,
Which time is for which and which is well?

I live the one and I dwell the other.
Something never taught by my mother.
I try so hard to savor them both
And tender both their loving growth.

It is a garden of amassing grace.
With two entrances to the place.
In one door and out the other.
My shangri-la of discover.

God grant me the wisdom of a Buddha
I am the sculptor and the author.
For I hear the nightingales troll
And Its trill has captured my soul.

And I pray the lord my souls upkeep,
Until the time of my permanent sleep.

Wondrous verse my friend.

 Now and forever, my heart hears ~one voice~.

Seymour -
Lovely place ... that Shangri-La.
You linger in the garden for a long time,
you hear?  Beautiful thoughts.
Hope you and yours are enjoying a
wonderful Christmas.
Love ~Marge~

Sy,
Life is not a Shangri-la
For Shangri-la is just a dream
But there is sure within each heart
A secret garden it would seem

For what is life without a dream
Without a sense of life's complete
But soul must choose the garden gate
To lead it not to right's defeat

It is by far the better road
Of following the course it knows
But now and then along the way
It's nice to stop and smell the rose

Love ya,
Liz

...and here it goes UP again! May God grant us all the wisdom we need. Merry Christmas, Seymour!

 Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!

I hear three voices in this, Sy.

Something not taught by my mother - LOL!
The voice of the wry bemused.

Wrapped in a package of love so neat -
the voice of the tender.

God grant me the wisdom - the voice of feeling helplessness.

A complementary mix incorporated in a beautiful poem - and I guess that over your words, I am one of those swooning ladies that Liz describes...!
