40 Day, 27 Poems Left to Write

The 200th anniversary of the Birth of Baha'u'llah is 40 days away. I have 27 poems dedicated to the Blessed Beauty left to write. The Blessed Beauty is one of the titles of Baha'u'llah, who is the prophet founder of the Baha'i Faith. 

Yesterday I finished poem 173, called The Glory of the Lord. It is in the book Bicentenary Poems and Prose posted in my port on writing.com. I don't know the themes of the remaining 27 poems, I'm sure that Baha'u'llah will reveal them to me in the next 40 days. In the meantime, I will pray, meditate, read the sacred writings, and work on other writing projects.

Bicentenary Birthday Celebration Poem

In the two hundred years since His birth, 
The world has changed, 
And His scriptures have spread across 
The planet. 

In 2017, 
We celebrate His 200th birthday, 
It is a planetwide celebration 
Of love for Baha'u'llah.

Happy Friday

Happy Friday! 
It rained last night 
Clearing the air 
And making breathing easier. 

Happy Friday! 
It rained this morning 
Cooling the air 
And making it a pleasant day 
To write poetry about the rain.

The Hair Cut

Snip, snip, 
The stylist severed 
Strands of hair. 

Snip, snip, 
Each strand dropped 
Onto the tile covered floor.

If You're Happy

If you're happy 
And you know it 
Go out and spread the cheer. 

Happiness isn't much fun 
Unless it is shared 
With the rest of the human race. 

If you're happy 
Say a prayer of gratitude 
And go make someone else happy.

Make Today Better

"Let each morn be better than its eve and each morrow richer than its yesterday." 
A better morning 
A breeze whisper through palm trees 
Hot cup of coffee 

Intone God's name at dawn 
Whisper a prayer at noontime 
A richer today
