Pilgrimage 1977~Writing Course 201 Day 8

Shrine of the Bab on Mount Carmel, Israel
Shrine of the Bab on Mount Carmel in Haifa, Israel

Sacred history spilled over the tree lined streets

Traces of my Masters footsteps illuminates

~

Rounding the corner I captured a glimpse of  gold

Gasping with solemn anticipation and joy so bold

~

My heart raced as I approached that holy ground

I could but stop and in silence make no sound

~

Entering the Shrine or womb of prayer

Or holy place so grand and rare

~

I called out to be shown my true course

To be united with my only Source

~

Within my memories there are prayers and flavors and sounds

Joyful music that I heard within those hallowed grounds

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
