VOCATION

Life-work

Life's joy

To create beauty

A mantle of beauty

Spread around us

 

Life-work

Life's joy

To be a mid-wife

For beauty

Struggling to be born

Searching for the light

 

Life-work

Life's joy

To release the beauty

Hidden deep within

Within the soul

Within a stone

A tree

A lump of metal

 

Life-work

Life's joy

To unleash cosmic beauty

Multi-hued beauty of sounds

And shapes and rhythms

Beautiful medley of thoughts

And feelings and actions

 

Life-work

Life's joy

The soul seeking

Its true nature

Soul-beautiful

Life-beautiful

Life-blessed

Perfectly blessed

Perfect joy

Life's joy

To create beauty
