Appetite and Omniscience

The prompt this week at Verse First is Appetite.  But as I missed last week's prompt Omniscience I thought I would combine both

And also linking to One Single Impression - Fragile

A soothing melody
Invaded my daydream
Gently flowing
Like a singing stream

It teased my thoughts
It disturbed my reverie
It opened my eyes
It shook my lethargy

It came and went 
And it was haunting
I was captivated
It increased my longing

I closed my eyes
To capture its essence
It filled me with bliss
I felt His presence

Omniscient
All pervading
Love ineffable
Ever aiding

His Divine grace
Soothed my soul
My appetite insatiable
For His love and to extol

~x~


When we hear the beautiful strains of the Lord's bansuri (flute) we are blessed and yet we so easily forget His love and grace. His melody is everlasting, always enticing, yet we choose only to listen when we need something.

Our love for the Lord is so fragile
It waxes and wanes like the moon
But His love is steadfast without guile
Eternal, and ready to grant any boon

    1. Thanks Margaret. So often we forget to thank the Lord. And when we feel His presence in the quiet, that fleeting moment is sublime.

  9. I liked them both, Suzy ~~ Yes, our love for the Lord is fragile but His is very steadfast (OSI).

    (First poem) I've been awake since 3:15 this morning. Went back to bed at five but couldn't sleep. Day dreamed and prayed; slept for about fifteen minutes and then couldn't sleep anymore so I got up and linked my blogs this morning. They had auto-posted at midnight.
