Senses Filled with Beauty

Incense is lit
Of fragrance surround
Smoke of the rising
The Spirit abounds

A sprinkling of water
Touching the skin
A blessing beyond
Forgiveness of sin

To nurture the soul
Body and mind
Song of the stirring
And Word of divine

A building so grand
A sparkling of gold
Is filled with Your grace
Of Presence, behold

A taste for the palette
Of wine and of bread
Of body and blood
Let our longing be fed

A celebration
Of our soul to see
To fill all our senses
With such beauty

Sense of Transformation

In our time of prayer
With God to reside
We take all our senses
And set them aside

Seeking of silence
In closing of eyes
No taste or smell
Hands folding, complies

Attuning the senses
With soul now to see
Heart of compassion
Acute senses, be

An offer unto God
Transformation, find
Bestowing upon us
Senses of divine

Senses Gift

A mornings’ time
That’s spent with thee
How wonderful
For us to be

To take stock
Of blessings sent
Each moment lived
That You present

With eye of heart
Of sight to see
With ear to hear
Your sweet beauty

With sense to feel
A touch of skin
Of fragrance deep
Breath to draw in

A savors’ taste
Or sour sweet
A sixth sense
Of prayer complete

Let’s pause this day
To exercise
The senses gift
For the wise
