Poetry Sunday-Uni/verse







It gathers on the wind

With each wave strewn,

Across the tiny grains of sand

To be washed out to sea.



And then deposited once more on a new shore.

Repeating, moving, gaining strength.



This one song-a Uni/verse,

Sung with a peaceful voice.

First a ripple, then a diverse chorus rising

Gathering once again to be born on the wind.



Our true essence shared

Free of judgment, compassionate heart

Turned inward on ourselves.

Serves all; one world.



This one song I sing-this uni/verse….

This poem …really a soulful song….sprung from me during one of my writing sessions recently.  I have been contemplating a more compassionate way of life, and how to bring this way of compassion to more people.  The word universe quite simply means, one song.  And from this thought, the words came forth to be born and shared here…..perhaps giving people pause to consider compassion as a universal song.



I will not have a post this Thursday or next Sunday, but will be back on Thursday, October 22nd.


I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.  Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.



If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs. 







Special Note:  The pictures here are from a shore close by to me.  Not the sea, but a wonderful lake across the street that I profiled a couple of weeks ago.




I leave you with a few additional thoughts about the Uni/verse.  I welcome you to download the photo and share it.

  1. Isn’t it wonderful when a song springs from the core of your heart to share with the rest of the world. Feels like we made a difference 😀 Beautifully put!

    Lots of love,

  2. What a parallel to our own existence is this poem where the feather (us) is blown hither and thither even across the seas to live our lives which we selfishly think is being planned by ourselves.

    1. Yes Robin….we do think we can plan our lives…..whether feather or sand, our lives, our wishes are blow on the wind and land where they are destined to be.

  3. I love how you have played on the idea of one song..however hard life may be..i suppose nature has a kind of consistency that we can learn much from if we choose…the tides come in and out…the sky changes from dark to light..how wonderful that can be..

    1. It can give us solace knowing if there is darkness right now light will come around soon….or the tide will come back! For now i need that solace. I am happy that you liked the poem.

  4. Wondrous! I am thrilled to find you over at Poet’s United~ I love the movement in your words and how you voice transcends time~
