ZEPHYR KISSING THE ASPIRATIONS OF DAWN Surreal Poem Aspirations seagulls
Gently Surreal Poem Aspirations seagulls
A zephyr through the night
Kissed the aspirations of dawn
Birds wing their way in light
Thoughts of wonder
Have lighted in my soul
The Man of Peace has sown His seed
To fill my empty bowl
Worries all gone
Pleasures in my soul
This poem was inspired by watching TV news and listening to stress, blame-shifting fears, pain in loss and feared losses of financial gain.
I mused, “Why is money such a troublesome thing to us all?” and “What does the love of money have to do with this image?”
Considering this I noted in this wonderful world how easy it is to get lost in the cares of daily stress missing out enjoying simple things as a child does.
You see, worrying and chasing after money as your god of security blinds you to the beauty in a simple daydream … the surreal in imagination.
I thought, a little bit of light-hearted surreal with bird images that I have used in other works. A terracotta bowl on a mirror photographed under studio lights and here is the result. Something simple, something surreal another story told.
If you are like me you will need continuous reminders to let it all go and walk in the fields of imagination. Without guilt for past failures.
Greed, avarice, the pride of position? One day worth everything, the next worth diddly squat (nothing). Some will murder, lie and cheat to have more than their neighbor. We feel insecure without it because we don’t trust where our next meal is coming from, as a child. We have lost faith in our worries. It does and it doesn’t make sense.
When you choose to dwell on the positives in life you are more adept at making the right choices, without fear, to discover many wonders offered for an abundant life.
Your bowl of inspiration becomes full with fresh images again and again if you ask to open your to see what He does. Your world will be much brighter with a very visible future wonder of His glory.
Whether you are in London, Paris, New York, Amsterdam, Sydney or in the midst of a desert on a camel with a smartphone, the allegory in this poem will bring peace. Ask Jesus and he will show you what I saw.
I am considering taking this further down the road of surreal into the fields of aspiration as a fully-fledged oil painting with floating dollars of wasted frustration. What do you think?
