Healed by poetry

Poetry heals
How you say?
The same way music uplifts you!
The same way a piece of art intrigues you!
The same way a song speaks to you!
The same way a story moves you!

Is communion with the ‘Divine’
Poetry is sacred
That’s what I’ve been taught

Rumi, Hafiz, Tahirih
Nourish my soul with magical words
Words like diamonds, priceless and pure
Words like rain, wash my pain away

Poetry heals
Poetry guides
Poetry teaches
What needs to be taught

And when I hear a poem I need to hear
It shakes me to my foundation
Truth is revealed
Growth occurs
Someone has touched my soul!

The instrument of the Divine
Complex issues
Are laid out

Poetry colours my world with different hues
Poetry guides me and helps me cope
Words have always accompanied me
Now, this is the shape they’re in

    • Thanks Julie. I love the new look of your blog. I want to make mine more beautiful as well. How did you go about changing the look? And I love the flower. My daughter takes lovely close-up photos of flowers and I use them when I post my poems on facebook. That’s what I was reminded of when I saw the new look of your blog.
