The Heart of Life

Originally uploaded by mcshots.

Bahar Al Hayat (The Sea of Life) the Arabic two words presents a poetic meaning from time to time hearing these words, I come to think how often these words “sea of life” had ever crossed our bits of thinking and to come to realize that life is nothing but a sea. We ought to take it day by day and yes some times we do need to be prepared by its calamity and its uproar because at times it wipes out. The sea of life is unpredictable though living it is the ultimate soul experience.

I came across the blog of .:A:. not only a poetry blog but his words makes your reach deep to the core of sea of life, it surely soothe the crying spirit and it lifts the soul to live again and yes without even knowing it. This poem below is bits of combination of words of .:A:. and mine. I hope you can read more of the work of .:A:. in L I P for his writing is truly an escape.

You want to touch the heart of life
The core of soul
Witnessing the tears of the heart
The anguish of your existence
It remains in you and in everyone else
The story of life
If certain moments can be framed
To steal the glory of that time
Yet you find: then there are times
You realize
You have to move on
And leave everything behind
The story of life

“Exciting times left behind for the enticing times ahead” .:A:.

Thanks mcshots for the photograph

Nasra, this moved me to tears of my own. I cannot express how wonderful it was to read the worlds of fellow poets around the world, and feel as if we all have some thing in common in the "sea of life".

You have a humble gift of putting other poets on pedestals, while you clap your hands and smile in the audience. You should be up there with us. Many blessings and abundance from the sea to you and all those who strive to understand the mysteries around them.

what a beautiful site! thank's an invite from a friend.

WHAT: A Bloggers (Silent) Poetry Reading

WHEN: Anytime February 2, 2006

WHERE: Your blog

WHY: To celebrate the Feast of Bridgid, aka Groundhog Day

HOW: Select a poem you like - by a favorite poet or one of your own - to post February 2. I don't imagine zillions of bloggers will partake of this online celebration of midwinter, but I am curious to see who is called to join this project, and especially curious to read the poetry that gets published.

RSVP: If you plan to publish, will you either leave your blog address as a comment on this post, or send me an email? I'd like to collect the poems.

Whether or not the groundhog sees his shadow, there will still be many more weeks of winter following February 2. I think it would be nice to have a bunch of bloggers' choice poetry to read until the spring thaw.

Feel free to pass this invitation on to any and all bloggers.

I have remembered you because your link is on the site of Therese:
One day when you will have enough time I would like you to read this post of Therese and my comments.
I want you to learn something about my heart
The deep feelings in your poems often did something good to my soul
so this shall do something good to you
-only if you have the time
N.B. I enjoy the story with the lady with the smile
and you shall know
there was a smile on my face, too - while reading and commenting with Therese
