Revaluation of our world

So our wise teachers told

Shows a landscape shifting

And attention drifting

Strong desire to hold it still

As magpie gathers shards until

Pain’s rise to coax reality

Of us and world’s mortality

Looking up for hopeful gift

Responses enter sound and swift

For light arranged and defence

New people places and events

Discerning well will lead to bliss

Releasing will fills every wish

Rich profound rewards unsought

Lordship, will and love are brought


O Lord my attraction for things is like a magpie’s for baubles and shards. I am tired of these things that prick my skin. Let me ever discover and revel in Thy beauty within. May Thy light shine bright to and for all.
