SPIRITUAL EVOLVEMENT

by

Doris N. Bowen


Dreams not dreamed, were shattered
leaves not fallen, fell
winds not moving, chilled me
as upon the ground, I knelt.

I cried in pain, unfeeling
for life I had not known
but numbness stole my spirit
and my hopes were overthrown.

A peaceful morning Sun arose
and drew my spirit, high
up golden stairs, no need to climb
for I learned I now, could fly.



TRANQUILITY

by

Doris N. Bowen

Tranquility does not assert
that conflicts, exist not...
nor does it promise strength,
without will...
Yet, through its veins
flow currents of
peace and harmony,
the seat of adversity
to all conflict
and the greatest promise
of Divine strength
for all mankind


MY AWAKENING

by

Doris N. Bowen


Glowing
like a flame
against the
night, the field
was yet,
as black as death.

Nestled low
in thicket, Eagles
hushed unwithered
reeds.....
Though feathery
the nest, nettles
pricked a restless thigh,
bestirring in my veins,
a blood,
that was not
LIFE.

Arising
to the consonance
of Seagulls
I visioned Eagles
on a distant shore...
Youngest,
fresh in labor's dew
lay bosomed,
bestirring in my veins
a blood
that was not
DEATH.



VOICE OF AN ANGEL

by

Doris N. Bowen


I have slept the blissful sleep
without the sting of death,
I've waken to the morning skies
where the dew has been my breath.

I have traveled upwards to the trees
without wings like birds, to fly,
and watched you as I soared beyond
yet you never heard a sigh.

I live the proof of Divine power
beyond all Earthly form,
yet I am here, close by your side
to protect you from all harm.




A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

by

Doris N. Bowen


God made us a little less
than the angels up on high,
yet He attached a set of wings
and said "now my child, fly".

This world of challenge tested us
in flight, against the wind,
yet as we flew, our spirit grew,
and soon we settled in.

But like the ebb and flow of tides
we stay around for just awhile
and then we leave on heavenly wings
God gave us as a child.
