yours to keep

yours to keep forever
is the message
hidden within verses
between chapters
of thickly bound pages
once related by an angel

to be recited
in an unprecedented melody
yet not without questioning
indeed a challenge to reproduce
the like of the revelation
or even a chapter, if they could

and yet still…
we let the meaning slip away
as we hold tightly on to the words
whereas the essence was meant
to flow freely like a warm scent
and touch every soul
who could recognise its message
without interpretation
or without even ever
hearing its words
for the intention of the scripture
is to revive a lesson
deeply imprinted
in the human instinct
if only we heeded the sense….

  1. And yet the revered messenger’s conviction in those words was so great that he told them he would not waver even if they put the sun in his right hand and the moon in his left… If only, I could heed to the sense…

    Thank you for this beautifully composed reminder…


  2. Dear Sonya,

    Thank you for this wonderful post. It beautifully points to that original scripture, embedded in the human heart, and made manifest in book.

    All good wishes,



I would love to have your thoughts
