Pilgrim Path

This blog is the work of a seeker and poet. Walking stick in hand, I head out into the world, not of the world, but in the world. My words and my friends carry me along and light the pilgrim path of spiritual journeys.

DAFFODILS

Here in the land of singers and trumpets,
heralding spring from a black loamy stage,
proud flowers brightly sway as a cool breeze
passes, illuminated from within.

Their long night of darkness fin’lly over,
pushing tender green leaves toward Mother sun,
hiding a deep saffron grace from the world
‘til we’ve humbly earned that gift from heaven.

Bursting open upon a bright random
morning, reminding us all of a joy
we posess, nodding to the immortal
Godseed, illuminated from within.

Rich, I love this poem, especially the image of "heralding spring from a black loamy stage" and "pushing tender green leaves toward Mother sun, / hiding a deep saffron grace from the world" -- both so earthy. "nodding to the immortal / Godseed" is evocative as well. Thanks as always for sharing your poetic gifts!
