A Masterpiece under Repair (part I)


A Masterpiece under Repair (part I)
The crown of creation
The Master Creator’s perfection
In Eden enthroned with dominion
Above all other creation
The Masterpiece created

Astray the masterpiece went
A wrong choice settled upon
From the express command
After obeying a lie from the enemy
The Masterpiece disobeyed

The wrong choice grave consequences bore
Consequences that eternity last
But the Master Creator intervened
With a divine intervention
The Masterpiece to repair

And now the Masterpiece under repair brought
A second chance given
The original intent to regain
Imparting in the Masterpiece the divine intent
The Masterpiece under repair

To undergo a repair so strenuous
A repair that prunes the unwanted branches
A pruning that pain leaves
But right character and divinity imparts
A Masterpiece under repair

A character in eternity to spend
The Creator to reflect
In all life’s aspect
A holy dominion to manifest
A Masterpiece under repair

An epitome of divinity
A divinity of right principles
The divine command to express
Across all creation varieties
A Masterpiece under repair

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
