Feather On The Beach.
At One With Creation.
O to join the whale on silken cruise,
To dance with the dolphin
and sing their songs of joy.
To soar with the skylark high
filling the air with melodies
comparable with the greatest
symphonies of mans creating
To run with the deer o’er moor and fell.
Swim upstream with salmon
To see the beauty,
in the gossamer wings of the butterfly.
Dance in thermals,
silent and uplifting.
To devour the scent of petals,
fragile glowing colours.
Rainbows bow across the sky,
Myriad dancing flakes if silent snow.
To feel the beat
at the heart of natures creation.
Throb with the inner pulse of earth.
Enveloped in its shroud of peace.
For man is oftimes bound on paths
destructive avenues of death
Creating imbalance in his pursuit of selfish gain.
Chi of all being
lead us back to green pastures,
open Eden’s gate.
That we may sense again the peace.
In dominion yet not the dominator,
fellow worker not destroyer.
Then all the world will shout,
so let it be.
I chose to add watercolour to today’s words for a reason. It is so easy to find ourselves in a place where we cannot help but saying that we are caught up in the beauty of it all. I remember one day standing at the end of the beach just where the track climbed away from the sea. I was talking to a man out walking his dog. I said to him, “Is this not just so beautiful?” he immediately agreed and began to identify places and point sin the wide panorama of the place around us. I said nothing, because what I was talking about was the feather lying at my foot. I had been caught up in the wonder of its creation. Yet birds have many such feathers and each in its own way is a work of art.
This painting was given to a friend as a gift. Recently somebody commented to me about it. I think I will try this one again having since that day look at many feathers on the beach, who knows I just might be able to make an even better job.
I hope you have a wonderful day and that my ranting have not set you off on a bad start.
