Holiness is everywhere,

The arranged flowers in a vase
On the Edge of life
In two small palms of a child
A share of her chocolate cake.

In carved wrinkles
on my mother’s face
Track of time,
Beholding love.

Holiness is everywhere
Behind the eyes,
Unmoved, blooming
Silently holding us
to the end of weeping,
blaming, complaining.

To arrival of
dazzling life
Effortless joy,
In human form….
We are
What is holy.

  1. Ram, I don’t know what to say, I feel so humble and so delight to feel and see God in every moment of life, you brought your own light that I pray shines upon all you come across with your purity and gentleness. May grace always accompany all. Many blessing dear friend.

  2. divine Serena Devi…..you are really a mirror of God…
    on the edge of life…offering beauty…..
    a small story to compliment your poem..

    child ask have you created me to pray to you?
    mother is mom what to answer, get tears ………….child inquires again also about the tears thinking question may not have hurt ?

    Mother composes and hold child in the lap and whispers in the
    child’s ear and says when in the garden I feed you with food , you
    also try with your small tiny hands to feed me ,please mom eat little ,how wonderful food you have cooked for me…still tears flowing…..

    Adds “It is not the requirement of cosmic intelligence that we pray or of any parents.
    prayers are like tiny hands of child wants cosmic intelligence to taste the wonderful cosmos that has created. but mom all different people refer through different names .does not get offended as I easily get angry if somebody do this to me. mom says wisdom comes through kindness. kindness is nature of cosmic intelligence and as child is happy mother is happy.

    happiness is prayers and thanks to cosmic intelligence .

    make each breath a prayer…..holiness everywhere….

    love all….
