The Eye of Heaven

Through the route of ages
in breath and equilibrium
the journey is always
the same
we are born to die.

Each remnant of the
ancient Gods leaves more to
question, than answers.

I jostle days
turning pages in wonder at
new knowledge
they impart.

Religion separates
divides and conquers
yet,
fire and ice can co-exist
if we did but surrender ego
to learn the higher plan.

With hint of fragrant promise
the softness of pillows await and
in sweet dreams and starlight
the moon sings her lullaby
to the earth
(her dearest one)
Meanwhile
the eye of Heaven watches
waiting for us all
to come home again
to love.

  1. I like this very much–especially the way you draw attention to the larger things of creation and the photo is perfect. Thanks for posting at Poetry Jam!

  2. such a beauty of a poem Heaven, echoes of a hymn are within
    these spiritual lines. surrendering so true and so difficult
    at times for humans to do.
    inspiring and loving – thank you.

  3. A beautiful ending – and much truth in this one. We have to move past organized religion and get back to love.

  4. “Meanwhile
    the eye of Heaven watches
    waiting for us all
    to come home again
    to love.”

    This lovely piece explains the nature of the plan and the patient loving therein.

  5. Beautiful writing DayDreamer..I think perhaps your writing shows that we are born to both live and die..and that if we are mindful of our breath..our being..that final slumber will indeed be fragrant..Jae

  6. Religion is the drug of choice … intoxicating just the same … one has the right to use or refuse.

  7. Or maybe we die just to be born again, either way all things end at some point. Like the ending, nicely woven.

  8. sadly religeon is one of the great divisions…along with politics…ha…the religeon is odd in that so many are based on the premise of love and yet we fall far short of that in our act of it…out fingerprints are all over our gods and i think it was meant to be the other way around…

  9. Very provocative… especially-

    Religion separates
    divides and conquers
    yet,
    fire and ice can co-exist
    if we did but surrender ego
    to learn the higher plan.

  10. Yes, so many battles have been fought in the name of religion throughout the years (fighting the ‘otherness’), but still – somehow despite the working of man – God is above it all and waiting to welcome in the name of Love. Nice write, Bren!
