The Sands of Time… The Rivers of Destiny…

(Written April 24th, 2014)

 

 

 

 

Across the sands of time he came…
with nothing but his mortal name
He learned the rules and played the game
now master of a timeless reign…

He battled monsters on high seas…
slayed demons in the mirror of me
the master of self; the cost was deep
now sails the rivers of destiny…

His body broken and…unkind…
aging brain…mind sharp as a knife
the adventure continues to find God inside
where there is no place to run or hide…

There is only “we” in Paradise…
no “you”…no “I”…no “me”…no vice…
herein lies truth, not once, but thrice…
Father loves Son; both love the Infinite Mind…

Across the sands of time he came…
now master of a timeless reign
now sails the rivers of destiny
in spirit form…traveling eternity…

To seek out the God of time and space…
to stand in his presence…face to face…

Across the sands of time he came…
now master of a timeless reign…
the master of self; the cost was deep
now sails the rivers of destiny…

  1. Wow..I really enjoyed this poem! Very profound…And I love the idea of making a video of it being read. Wonderfully done! Some of my favorite lines that really resonated (though the whole thing did but if I had to pick…) were:There is only “we” in Paradise…no “you”…no “I”…no “me”…no vice…herein lies truth, not once, but thrice…Father loves Son; both love the Infinite Mind…__I'd love your thoughts on my latest post if ever you have a chance. No worries if you don't. I'm looking forward to reading more of your poems. :)http://ascendingthehills.blogspot.com/2014/04/at-rivers-edge.html

  2. Thank you, Jessica. Your thoughts on this are greatly appreciated and mean a lot to me. I've had a special, if not profound relationship to writing poetry for many years. Every time a new poem comes into being, it is akin, in the most basic and crudest of comparisons to giving birth, or laying an egg. I intuitively feel the poems formulating, just below consciousness.We are resonating on my own favorite passage, the one you cited. As I reviewed the video before and after it was published, I found myself really liking the way this passage flowed and the deep meaning it conveys.I am well pleased that you enjoyed it enough to leave your thoughts on this post for me. :-)Tim

  3. Thank you, Nikki. Hopefully it comes across that I put heart, mind and soul into everything I work on and create. I have had to work hard on the voice, over the last couple of years. I am hopefully improving on my delivery, as I go along. Your thought and feedback is greatly appreciated. 🙂
