Listen to the Wind

They say a poem's not really a poem until you share it with someone else. And that's what this place is all about.

When the wind blows
The quiet things speak

Inertia is transfigured
Into potency

Dying leaves on tired branches
Become a rebel choir
Lingering on the disturbing chords
Of change

Little rain drops
Become tribal drums

And join together
To tremble the seas of
indifference


Sparks of heat
explode
Into passionate flame
That singe the air
And crackle the night

Till fire replaces fear.

When the wind blows the quiet things speak

Myriad, myriad dormant voices join as
One to rapture the skies
With words of change

Till the bared teeth of injustice
Turn to the smiles of hope

Till each little child who cries
Because they are motherless and fatherless
Are claimed as our own,

When the wind blows…

Christian and Muslim,
Black and White,
Gay and Straight
Man and Woman,
Homeless and Fortunate,

Will loosen their frightened tongues
To speak aloud
Words
Gilded in Love

“Beloved,
I see your tears.
I feel the weight that oppresses your tender soul,

And I can be silent no longer

As long as I have a voice

I will speak for you”

Listen…

The wind is blowing.

Till each little child who cries
Because they are motherless and fatherless
Are claimed as our own,
When Maithri speaks

the clouds dissipate,

the eyes view the truth,

the heart remembers tunes

that were long forgotten and lost

within the deviant noises

of an unconscious world,

tunes that sing of Love.

Tears and smiles of children

become divine messengers

to awaken our souls

to a new dawn.


Your words indeed never fail to center our hearts, dear Maithri.
Thank you for sharing your divine self with us.
With all my love,
Margherita :)
Love is the One who masters all things;
I am mastered totally by Love.

Stunning - the poem and the spirit of the author.

You are truly a gifted and talented spirit. . .There are times I think I am an exceptionally caring person until I see that rare something in someone - doesn't matter if there is a continent or a screen between us - I see a light surrounding them. I see this light in you.

Always makes me realize I have a long way to go before I can claim a light for myself, but on the other hand - I am so grateful when I come upon someone who has this aura - it is inspiring - you are inspiring. {{{{{Maithri}}}}

Thank you dear friends,

For all your tender and beautiful words.

They move me more than you know.

I cannot believe in any love which excludes any one from its circle.

Any love which considers one human being 'less than' for what they believe, or who they love, or their 'status' within the community.

Love is the ultimate force of inclusion.

Love is the ultimate bridge between hearts.

Love is the ultimate reality.


May the disturbing winds of love blow through this world.... remind us of our common humanity, and awaken us to all our brothers and sisters in need.

Maithri.

Dear (((Maithri))),

you bring such ripples and waves of lovelight and its truly glorious to behold!!!

brings to mind the following quotes...

I love you my brother, whoever you are -
whether you worship in your church,
kneel in your temple, or pray in your mosque.
You and I are all children of one faith,
for the diverse paths of religion
are the fingers of one loving hand
of one Supreme Being,
a hand extended to all,
offerring completeness of spirit to all,
eager to receive all...
~ Kahlil Gibran


~and~

'I' and 'you' are but lattices
In the niches of a lamp,
Through which the One Light shines.

'I 'and 'you' are the veil
Between heaven and earth;
Lift this veil and you will see
No longer the bond of sects and creeds.

When 'I' and 'you' do not exist,
What is mosque, what is synagogue
What is the Temple of Fire?
~ Sa'd al-din Mahmud Shabistari


love ladybird luv

~ The love of one's country is a splendid thing. But why should love stop at the border...
~Pablo Casals
Sunshine surrounds the earth as love surrounds our souls. ~Amethyst Snow-Rivers
