[as it appeared in the March 2011 Newsletter]
May the first breeze of SpringTouch your heart and caress your face
With a gentle tease of the beauty of theFelt, but unseen glance of God’s benevolent love.
As the seasons change and you behold
The oneness in Nature’s rhythm, be
Thankful as the Spring’s tulips, who
Stretch their necks heavenward in praiseAnd thanks for their short span of glory.
Take time to feel the warmth of
The Sun who spreads his blanket of heat
On all with non-judgment and impartiality;
To melt the hearts of those frozen inThe icy grip of self-concern.
As the setting sun appears to rest,
Do the same with your quiver of fears,
Releasing them into the hands of God;
To disburse as meteors inA blaze of night light mystery.
Pray for God’s joy to be a
Gentle rain to soften your soul
To be prepared for the showers
Of His constantly unfolding blessings.

* Marc R. Boulais is a serious student of Life who is committed to learning, living and practicing universal life truths. Having been raised Roman Catholic, it is clear that his short story “Deep Waters” includes imagery and references that reflect his strong Christian background. But Marc is also a student of other disciplines. He studies A Course in Miracles, the works of Joseph Campbell, the teachings of native American Indian Fools Crow, as well as the poetic writings of Rumi and Lao-Tzu, to name a few. According to Marc, all spokes of the wheel lead to the center and that center is God.
