To kiss the fruit
And caress the flower,
To taste without tarnishing
Humble nature's natural dower,
In this sweet pursuit
I shall place my frail body
Till death's timely hour,
And do so
With only breath remaining
To wish that
Amidst the winds of the world,
It will not shake nor cower
In the face of quiet eternity.© Scott Hastie

Immortal Soul - Metaphysical Poem
by Robert Gresak
As ancient as time itself
is my immortal soul
descended indeed from the infinite bowl
of cosmic depths.
Before this ancient Earth was e'en born
I knew of many a wondrous splendid dawn
upon other worlds where every morn
sang of the glory of the most High,
as did all its peoples.
Before e'en this sun came into being
was I a living spark, a flame, dreaming
within the vast body universal
standing before the door
to other realms of radiant wonder.
And one day shall my soul know again
the glory of that celestial plane
and will that former, ancient wisdom regain.
Rhyming Couplets Spiritual Poem
by Terry A. Shuman
(U.S.A., Medina, Ohio)
A tabula rasa, John Locke has said
Conjoins with every newborn soul,
And, by the time it can be read,
Is ill perceived as someone’s “whole.”
Yet, as the years of life fly by,
Each human learns that deep inside
Exists a force which cannot die,
Despite what selfish fears deride.
For knowledge and the soul remain
As constants for eternity;
Transmuted from the heart and brain
As echoes of reality.
‘Tis knowing what one cannot know,
And rowing far from charted shores,
While blinding gale force winds still blow,
That sharpens vision all the more.
While in this world of eye-blink breadth,
Should one confuse or misconstrue
What happens at the point of death,
‘Twill matter not their point of view.
(Poem Copywrited © by Terry A. Shuman)
