Photo “White Sage” by Cord X.  Thank you, Cord!

“Flowers are the music of the ground. From earth’s lips spoken without sound.” – Edwin Curran

I don’t know which poem today’s quote is from but I thought it perfectly matched Cord’s beautiful white sage flower.  Edwin Curran published his first book of poems in 1917.  He was born in 1892, so he was 25-years old at the time.  I found this first poem in that book so captivating and sweet and so full of hope that I know I’ll share more of his poetry in the future.

THE FUTURE – IF WE WIN

I leaped here out of time and saw ahead
into the years still locked and chained and still;
I leaped into that great sleep, yet still dead
And saw there all the power of the human will,
All the toil of ages gathered and unfurled
Into a thing of beauty on a glorious hill,
The Flag of The United Nations of the World!

The sea was full of ships, great argosies in white,
With sweet wines, silks, sandalwood and wheat;
The fields lay heaped in gold and far abroad
The marts of all the world wore jewels of light.
The mountains laughed and peace was in the street
And gloriously, the world was happy as God.

On still the Vison took human sense
Beyond the world and down the path of men
Thru happiness immortal, then the centuries
And on forever and forever hence
Past earth and time and space and back again,
Thru the endless joy of marvelous eternities.

-Edwin Curran, First Poems, 1917

It makes me wonder what tucked away poems are lost in time.  If we live forever, will we find them all eventually and read them to each other, do you think?

my prayer

Painting “My Prayer” by Niki Flow. Shantideva was an Indian Buddhist monk who lived in the 8th Century. This prayer spoke to my heart.  I’m not a holy Buddhist monk, but I can do small acts where I am with great love, too, one beautiful day at a time.  ♥.

This will be made into note cards for our stationary store, under1000skies.com and will be included in Rx-for-Healing – the Power of Color and Opposites.  For me, this  quote would go under the tab, “Awakened” to be read whenever I feel the opposite:  asleep, numb, addicted, closed-minded, judgemental (etc.).
