Thought

Far views of horizon broad

Of pinks and wakening hues

The calm and peace all around

And silent voice Divine was heard

Then silence broke along with dawn,

As from minarets echoes bid

Come pray – come pray this day!


Temple bells rang out aloud

And shattering shankhas fully blown

Suddenly retracing sounds

That resonate from source of OM

Come pray – come pray this day!


Church bells in deep tones did chime

To announce the hour of prayer time

Alerting pigeons flapped their wings

In praise of God and living things

Come pray – come pray this day!


I peeped in houses, huts and tents

And there I saw the simple lamps

Heard sincerely uttered chants.

And the gods were all entranced


Prayers and thoughts vibrated strong

Throughout the three grand worlds

And even in celestial realms,

The angels thronged and danced.

Rejoice, today the earth is draped

With joy and hope as new world shaped


Prayer

O Lord of constant love, I thank you for the grace of thought and prayer. I know that I have largely wasted these and yet You continue to supply Your very Self as their flow. May we all find precious time to be intensely with Thee.
