Energy - God's Gift of Energy! (Poem)

Shyron is a Logophile (a lover of words) and loves poetry also and writes poems when inspired to do so.

God's Gift of Energy

When I close my eyes I can be anywhere and receive God's gift of energy.

When I close my eyes I can be anywhere and receive God's gift of energy.

God's Gift of Energy.

© by Shyron Shenko - 2/10/2014

Energy, it ebbs and flows in me

Like the rolling of the sea

It flows in, washing over me

Then ebbs right back into the sea

When tides of energy rush in from the rising sea

It ebbs away the negativity

And leaves only positive energy

To recharge the soul, entrusted to me

So.. When I think that I can't see

Everything that I am meant to be

I close my eyes, and in my mind I 'm walking by the sea

That allows the positive energy to flow again in me

Then I know from the renewed strength

That renewed the energy in my soul

And, will help me reach my final goal

To be all I am meant to be, right here by God's sea

Watched (listened) to the speeches by Kamala Harris & Joe Biden tonight (Nov. 7th) and found them both inspiring. Not a word about Trump. Seems all of Trump's speeches were about himself, same old, same old. What a lovely change to hear a speech that was nothing about Trump, and all about the good possibilities for our country! There was good energy among the crowd.

Hope all is well with you and that you are as pleased with the election results as I am. Now that we have the orange monster definitely on his way out, we can start to rebuild our country and our reputation around the world. Biden wasn't the ideal choice, but 1000 % better than Trump.

Blessings dear friend. Stay safe.

There is something about seeing the lapping of waves that seems to be soothing and reenergizing for many people. That, along with the sea breezes, is so alluring. I enjoyed your poem.

C E Clark from North Texas on August 01, 2020:

Since moving into an apartment with my daughter I have many more and better opportunities to get some good quality sleep. Now I find it hard to wake up! It's said one can never catch up their sleep once it's lost, but I sure seem to be trying to do just that. Hopefully energy will result and I can get on with all that needs doing before much more time passes.

My best wishes to both you and Walter. Stay safe!

C E Clark from North Texas on January 29, 2019:

If only I could get some energy, but the same issues apply as the last time I read this excellent poem. Think I am a zombie, able to sleep and walk or whatever at the same time, but that kind of sleep isn't good sleep, unfortunately.

Hope all is well with you. Blessings dear friend . . .

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on February 18, 2018:

I know how it is to go without sleep...believe me. Thank you Au fait for the comment.

Blessings my dear friend you take care also.

C E Clark from North Texas on February 14, 2018:

I think if I could just get some sleep I would have some energy. It's getting to where I can't stay awake.

Hope all is well with you and John. Take care . . .

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on July 20, 2016:

Au fait, thank you for the comment, compliment and for sharing this. I do hope you find a nice cool place. I talked to my brother in Illinois yesterday and he was saying they were getting some hot weather.

Blessings and hugs to you also my dear friend.

C E Clark from North Texas on July 16, 2016:

So hard to have energy when it's too hot to sleep. Came back to share this excellent poem again. Hope you're in a cool place -- assuming there is such a place in what became a part of Hell when Texas was annexed back in 2011. :)

Hope all is well with you. Blessings and hugs dear friend.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on May 29, 2016:

Au fait, thank you for the comment, compliment and for sharing. I wish the rain would stop for a while.

I hope all is well with you.

Blessings and hugs my dear friend.

C E Clark from North Texas on May 20, 2016:

We're about to get into mid to upper 80s to stay, and I will definitely need some energy to get through this summer that's all but here now. More rain coming too. Sharing this excellent poem again.

Blessings . . . take care . . .

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on December 02, 2015:

Au fait, thank you for the comment.

I know we can't just get the rain as needed, it seems it is flooding or drought, no happy medium. Hope you are warm and dry.

Blessings and hugs to you too my dear friend.

C E Clark from North Texas on November 28, 2015:

Very hard to get the energy to do anything when it's so cold. Thought I would freeze las' night and it just wouldn't stop raining. Think we're in a time warp and we just keep going around and around with this rain with no end in sight. Gonna be flooded out of here before much longer.

Hope you guys are staying in where it's warm and dry. Blessings and hugs to you my dear friend . . .

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on September 19, 2015:

Au fait, thank you for the comment and for sharing this. I hope it gets cooler today, but it is cloudy and even if it does not rain it will be a little bit cooler.

I hope all is well with you, Blessings and Hugs

C E Clark from North Texas on September 16, 2015:

I could use some energy. Perhaps then I could get something useful done. This is a lovely poem and I can feel energy flowing as I read it. The cooler temperatures give me a little bit of energy and hopefully there will be more as it cools down enough for my brain to start working again . . . ;)

Hope you're having a great evening. Hugs and blessings to you both.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on April 19, 2014:

Maria, thank you, I do feel some better, thank you for the comments, votes and most of all for the love.

Love Shyron

Maria Jordan from Jeffersonville PA on April 17, 2014:

Dear Shyron,

Hoping you are starting to feel better...transitional weather can wreak havoc on us.

I am also 'grounded by the wonders of the sea'. There is something about realizing our role in the bigger scheme and the sea can do that for me.

There is something about your writing that brings me energy and peace.

Beautiful work...voted UP and UABI. Love, Maria

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on March 15, 2014:

Au fait, my dear friend, I hope you got everything done that you wanted. Time flies when you don't want it to.

Thank you for the votes, comment and sharing.

I appreciate you.

C E Clark from North Texas on March 13, 2014:

I sure do need some energy right now. This week is nearly over and while I have gotten a lot of things done that needed to be done, there are still so many things still waiting . . .

You write such great poetry. Sometimes beautiful, sometimes funny (not this one, but others I've read). I really look forward to your next one.

Voted up, BAI, and shared.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on February 17, 2014:

Aunt Jimi, thank you my dear and special friend, for your comments, votes and for sharing. I really do appreciate you.

Beautiful poem and so well presented. This one should win some awards too. Voting it up, BAI, and sharing. Hope you're enjoying this beautiful day we have.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on February 16, 2014:

Lovely! Voted up, awesome and beautiful! :)

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on February 12, 2014:

Thank you Devika, for your comments and voting this up. The sea does have that affect/effect on people, or at least most people, probably animals too.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on February 12, 2014:

Aunt Jimi, thank you Dear Friend for the comments, compliments, votes up and sharing.

I have not seen/read Au fait's question. I will look for it right now, thank you for telling me about it.

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on February 12, 2014:

A beautiful poem it is amazing how one can fell energized by the ocean I too feel the same when walking along the beach. The sound of the water makes me feel free less stressful. Voted up!

Aunt Jimi from The reddest of the Red states! on February 11, 2014:

My, but you've gotten a lot of comments on this poem already! And it is excellent. I really enjoyed it and I'm voting it up, and beautiful/awesome and sharing.

Did you know it takes a while before the votes show up? I don't know why.

Have you seen Au fait's question? Don't mean to impose this on your article - you can delete this if you like. It's under "Explore-Answers-Family and Parenting." I'm thinking on my own answer as it's not a light question.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on February 11, 2014:

Au fait, thank you as always my dear friend for your comments, compliments, votes, sharing and pinning.

Nellieanna, thank you for the compliments and comments.

I have not read Anne Morrow Lindbergh's book, but I have made note of it and will look for it on-line and see if I can find it. Thank you for the suggestion.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on February 11, 2014:

anginwu, thank you so much for the compliment.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on February 11, 2014:

Thank you Bill, for the compliment. Yes, we are meant to be so much.

C E Clark from North Texas on February 11, 2014:

Beautiful! I don't know if you intended it, but I believe there is a lot of depth beyond the obvious in this poem.

Voted up, BAI, and will share! Also, pinned to Awesome Hubpages.

Glenda on February 11, 2014:

Bravo Shy - I like your layout and you poem. I am surprised you didn't use the butterfly you drew on the glass.

take care Glenda, give me a call.

Faith Reaper from southern USA on February 11, 2014:

Beautiful indeed! I used to live by the sea when I was first married, and remember closing my eyes and listening to the sounds of the waves and the Seaqulls' squawks. It was energizing!

Up and more and sharing

Blessings,

Faith Reaper

Nellieanna Hay from TEXAS on February 11, 2014:

Beautiful! I've often been inspired to write with the ebb and flow of the sea as metaphors, though they're foreign to my personal experience. Their power and energy are so apparent, as you've captured.

If you've never run across Anne Morrow Lindbergh's book, "Gift From The Sea", I think you'd appreciate it.

anglnwu on February 11, 2014:

Love it. The whole image with the butterflies and the poem is just lovely.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on February 11, 2014:

And we are meant to be so much! To infinity and beyond my friend. Lovely work!

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on February 11, 2014:

Perspycacious, thank you for the comment.

Demas W Jasper from Today's America and The World Beyond on February 11, 2014:

Read and rooting!

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on February 11, 2014:

Audrey, thank you so much for the compliment.
