Murmuring Thoughts

Icicles in the Sun

If I murmur, talk or sing
Guard the magic with this ring.
Hold the thought and come what may
Let the sacred children play.
Understand but don’t read through.
Spirit will enlighten you.
Then forgive and what we’ve done
May be forgiven. Life’s begun.

Text: Linked to dVerse Quadrille hosted by De Jackson (aka WhimsyGizmo) with the word “murmur”.  Because of the lines about forgiveness I am linking this to Debbie Roth’s Forgiving Fridays.  I don’t know what this poem means.  It just murmured its way here.

Photos: “Icicles in the Sun”, above, and “More Icicles”, below, taken at noon on this relatively warm winter’s day.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. I love this poem, Frank (your knack for rhyme shines, always)…but my favorite line is in your explanation:
    “It just murmured its way here.” (Isn’t that always so true, of poems?) 😉

  2. First, the photos are amazing. As I was reading, I felt it might be the murmurs of the trees. The rings of the tree stand for the years of life on the earth, forgive mankind, perhaps for cutting so many down. Let the saplings play and grow and perhaps forgiveness will be found.

    I might be way off, but that is how I read it.

  3. Frank, this is magnificent! I so empathize with not knowing what the poem means — that is often my own experience. To me, I sense that it is a song of love from your heart to you. Thank you for sharing it with all of us, and for #ForgivingFridays! Many blessings, Frank. (and happy Valentine’s Day)
