Posts Tagged ‘“LOOK TO THIS DAY/ FOR IT IS LIFE/ THE VERY LIFE OF LIFE..” SUFI POEM; CATHERINE L. JOHNSON;’

Look to this day,

for it is life,

the very life of life.

In its brief course lie all the verities and realities
of your existence;
the bliss of growth,
the glory of action,
the splendor of beauty.
For yesterday is but a dream ,
and tomorrow is only a vision,
But today well lived makes every yesterday
a dream of happiness
and
every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore to this day,
such is the salutation of the dawn.
The Sufi, 1200 BC

MY BELOVED ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON + MENTOR,
HIS CREATIVE GENIUS  RELEASED MY BOUND BODY.
HIS LOVE ” I CAN SEE YOU” RELEASED MY SOUL.

HE LIVES IN MY HEART.

HIS DAUGHTER, MARTHA,
SAID
THIS SUFI GREETING
OF THE DAWN
WAS THE MANTRA
OF HER FATHER’S EXISTENCE:
HIS BREATH;
HIS LIFE;
HIS DAWN;
AND
HIS SUNSET ON 13 JULY.

HE RE-SHAPED MY BODY,
CALLED OUT MY SPIRIT
AND
ACKNOWLEDGED MY SOUL.

HE ASKED ME TO MAKE TWO PROMISES
 TO HIM BEFORE HE DIED:
“PROMISE ME TWO THINGS:

ONLY

LET THOSE WHO HONOR AND RESPECT
YOU COME NEAR
AND

ALWAYS

 REMAIN AN ARTIST.”

DR. COVENTRY, I KEEP MY PROMISES TO YOU.

INTEGRITY.
GRACE.
WONDER.
GRATITUDE.
FAITH.
BLESSED.
HOPE.

OUR LIVES ARE SACRED COLLABORATIONS WITH ONE ANOTHER,
IMPROVISATIONS OF CALL + RESPONSE.

SOMETIMES  A BREAKTHROUGH OF WONDER
OCCURS IN THE INTERSECTION OF TWO LIVES
THAT CREATES A NEW VISION OF LIFE CALLED HOPE
SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW
BECOMES A REALITY FOR OTHERS.
A SPIRAL OF HOPE RISES FROM CHALLENGE + DARKNESS.

NEW DAWNS OPEN.

NEW DAWNS OPEN.

NEW DAWNS OPEN.
