Saints within

Spread the love

201303251759320428609001364214572

Feel the power that’s deep within,
beneath the noise and below the din.
In lilac waters we bathe our skin,
near end of fear our hopes begin.
Yet be in show or truth a saint,
our eyes reflect the life we paint.

An image of soul we strive to draw,
that’s free from
sin and void of flaw.
May blessings rich be our due,

with oaten pipes sweet and new.
Our trials such they
keep us strong,
secure our steps from err and wrong.

In tempestuous seas and scabrous wind;
our waves of grit approached the brim.

    I love the title and was swept along in your colour and light as i often am -our eyes reflect the life we paint – a very clever and touching line..if only we could paint it happy – or even happier

    This is so beautiful Sanaa and I think you have wisdom beyond your years. The life we paint is the one that matters regardless of external shows of saintliness. This reads like a prayer.

    A lovely first verse. I think we use many forms of art to draw or paint our life. I think sometimes we just need to find the right textures to create a piece of love.
