Homage to the Prophet ~ Collaboration with Fre’de’ric G. Martin

“When love beckons to you, follow him,

Though his ways are hard and steep”  (Khalil Gibran, “The Prophet”)

 

HOMAGE TO THE PROPHET

 

He stood on the mountain, exalted

And he wished for an audience to rhapsodize

About all he had seen

All he had learned

 ~

Grasping harmony in cacophony

Fighting for peace as wars dehumanize

And pushing for a truce

Between silence and tumult

 ~

He wore the tattered vestiges of pain

So delicately on his psyche

As his cloak of love and brilliance

Billowed from his soul

 ~

And even winter rains fell under his spell

For he was a maker of rainbows

Who had to teach the bright colors of wisdom

Passion, Mindfulness and Freedom

 ~

And they gathered

And they listened

This giant amongst them

Answered every question

 ~

And the people rose as one…

As a pregnant woman smiled to him, he said:

The Soul and her baby look alike

Children of Love only have to get ready

 ~

To be born

**

Blessitude

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

  1. Wonderful Lorrie. How wonderful to see you and Frederic working together. I love poetry, and you both have such deep passion. My first collaboration ever was with him. I was a little unsure that I could actually do it, but the final outcome was amazing (thanks to him, of course).
    Bless both you and him.
    🙂 ❤

I remember reading comments between you two way back, and one could truly tell that you both have a deep respect and appreciation for each other. We need relationships like that in our lives, don’t we. We were made to connect.
