Raising~Harrisham Rhyme

In my wildest prayers, I dance

Nearing my Lord in movement

Gives my soul a sublime trance

Sublime inner harmonic alignment

Entice my weary spirit to advance

Every part offering sincere atonement

Morgan’s prompt was to write about the meditation of movement. I think of the whirling dervishes and the many different Faith’s that encourage the posture of prayer thereby linking our bodies, minds and souls in praise and supplication.

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.

  1. I do think there are examples of prayerful dancing in the OT. King David dancing in front of the Ark of the Covenant, as an example. I really think there can be prayer in movement. Very nicely penned.

  2. Love that first line because “wildest prayers” is an unexpected juxtaposition of words and images and then to follow that up with “I dance” further surprises the reader…..it’s glorious 🙂
