FATHER’S DAY POEMS: “Father: The Changing Role” by Trina Graves

INSPIRATIONAL POEMS: “May my heart” by E. E. Cummings

“May my heart” May my heart always be open to little birds who are the secrets of living whatever they sing is better than to know and if men should not hear them men are old may my mind stroll about hungry and fearless and thirsty and supple and even if it’s sunday may I…

FATHER’S POEMS: “Today’s Father” by Trina Graves

Today’s Father The Father of today Is free to take his role In any direction he wants He can set his own goal Fathers of the past Were shackled to society Having to always fit in Blinkered from other ways to be Not allowed at the birth No sharing of the nurturing Only some playing…

POEMS: “The Invisible Helpers” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

The Invisible Helpers There are, there are Invisible Great Helpers of the race. Across unatlased continents of space, From star to star, In answer to some soul’s imperious need, They speed, they speed. When the earth-loving young are forced to stand Upon the border of the Unknown Land, They come, they come–those angels who have…

MYSTIC POEMS: “My heart” by Rumi

“My heart” My heart, sit only with those who know and understand you. Sit only under a tree that is full of blossoms. In the bazaar of herbs and potions don’t wander aimlessly, find the shop with a potion that is sweet. If you don’t have a measure people will rob you in no time….

POEMS: “Gitanjali 35” By Rabindranath Tagore

Gitanjali 35   Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;    Where knowledge is free;    Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;    Where words come out from the depth of truth;    Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;    Where the clear stream of…

SPIRITUAL POEMS: “The Question” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

“The Question” Beside us in our seeking after pleasures, Through all our restless striving after fame, Thorough all our search for worldly gains and treasures There walketh one whom no man likes to name. Silent he follows, veiled of form and feature, Indifferent if we sorrow or rejoice, Yet that day comes when every living…

INSPIRATIONAL POEMS: “Seeking For Happiness” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

“Seeking For Happiness” Seeking for happiness we must go slowly; The road leads not down avenues of haste; But often gently winds through by ways lowly, Whose hidden pleasures are serene and chaste. Seeking for happiness we must take heed Of simple joys that are not found in speed. Eager for noon-time’s large effulgent splendour,…

POEMS: “Listen” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

  Listen   “Whoever you are as you read this, Whatever your trouble or grief, I want you to know and to heed this: The day draweth near with relief. No sorrow, no woe is unending, Though heaven seems voiceless and dumb; So sure as your cry is ascending, So surely an answer will come….

A quote from Rainer Maria Rilke about “loving one another”

For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult task of all…., the work for which all other work is but preparation. It is a high inducement to the individual to ripen… a great claim upon us, something that chooses us out and calls us to vast things. —Rainer Maria Rilke

A quote by Paulo Coelho (from The Alchemist)

  I have inside me the winds, the deserts, the oceans, the stars, and everything created in the universe. We were all made by the same hand, and we have the same soul. —Paulo Coelho from The Alchemist

SPIRITUAL POEMS: “The message” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

“The message” I have not the gift of vision, I have not the psychic ear, And the realms that are called Elysian I neither see nor hear; Yet oft when the shadows darken And the daylight hides its face, The soul of me seems to hearken For the truths that speak through space. They speak…
