Soul SurvivorSurrender

Surrender, surrender my soul.
Surrender to the wind coming out of the east.
Surrender to the sunset in its last golden rays.
Surrender to the Love which permeates every atom.

 Surrender, surrender my heart.
Surrender to the prayer whispered in your psyche.
Dress yourself in white.
Release the veil of wishing.
Surrender to the Everlasting.
Give up your fight.

 Surrender, surrender my soul.
Surrender to the peace.
Surrender your imagination to the Illimitable.
Surrender to the depth of Being.

 Surrender, surrender my heart.
Make your last stand in the Kingdom of Heaven.
Think there, breathe there, live there.
Surrender to the Timeless.
Be One, be complete, be gotten.

This poem was inspired by an idea for a painting I wasn’t able to do at the time, so I put it into words.  There’s always a pencil and paper at hand; that’s the great thing about writing.  Perhaps one day the painting will be done, but if not it is still in my imagination.  Many things awaken the joy within me, but I think the thing that begins it all is when Spirit whispers to me, and inspired Joy is released.

I hope it speaks to you in some way.  May God bless you and give you the desires of your heart.  Until next time, may happy days abound!

    I was by here back sometime right after you posted this – but didn’t take time to respond. What’s so weird is that the email before your email notifying me of your post showed in the subject line: “Don’t Surrender” and yours said “Surrender”. How odd is that. Turns out the other one was ‘don’t surrender to summer heat’. Sure reflects the battle though, doesn’t it?

    Thanks so much for stopping by!! Trees year round is a great idea to keep that Glow from a Tree after the Christmas holidays is over. Just shop after Christmas sales and through out the year for ornaments that can be used for other Holidays….

    Hi Again Marianne

    Just to say that the paints I used were the shimmering ones and certainly weren’t new lol. I rarely buy any new crafty products at all I just sort of make my own version of things where possible.

    I have a whole box of these little pots of paint given to me by my daughter who thought I would make better use of them than she did.

    Thank you for the lovely comment on my blog.

    Love as always Chrissie x
