What The Soul Is Like?

The soul is like a fresh zephyr
Gentle, tranquil and sometimes a gust
Keeps on sailing across borders
Giving life to all is what it doest

The soul is like a deathless harmony
Playing itself on various albums
Crossing barriers and boundaries
Puts lives of all in a settled rhythm

The soul is like a meandering river
Flows and drifts in ebbs and tides
Never swaying; zig-zagging the frontier
Joins everything that man divides

The soul in all it's majestic glory
Moves on; fastens the strings of all
kinds of life; and is pure and holy
And takes a new life-form on God's call

This is wonderful--so seldom do we see a poem focusing on the soul. Beautifully written.

Brian Miller said...

love the zig zagging like it is stitching up what man divides...very nice one shot...

gospelwriter said...

reminds me of "a river runs through" (name of movie) - and of course, the soul is that, it's the constant, always there... you show that nicely in your poem

I liked the soul as meandering river.. as I relate with river so much... nice take on understanding soul... and the last lines were powerful...

A zephyr, a harmony, a river - and it yearns for home (God). Beautiful poem.

Love the zig-zagging the frontier, the river like the thread binding the soul.
