Divine Love


Under the super moon
Of a late evening nighttime sky.
I sit out on the lawn,
Deep in thought, 
Giving thoughts and questions
In the form of a prayer….

Above, the stars twinkle and shine,
The scene is so beautiful and divine…
I can’t even fathom the thought of those
Who believe that a God and higher power
Isn’t even there…

In my mind,
I see such beauty and grace,
In my heart,
I can feel the kiss that my
Lord bestows upon my face….

In a world of wide multitude and
All powers surreal,
In my heart, I know that there is
A home of heaven….
It’s everything inside of me
And those feelings are real.

How could I ever question that
Such a divinity doesn’t exist…
Every bone, particle and matter
I am made of..
Its exquisite creation…
There’s so much that I can list…
Dear brother, I look thee in the eye,
Don’t try to convince me otherwise..
Don’t even try…

I’m a part of you…
And you…a part of me…
The feelings in my heart are
So powerful,
The power of love is
Everything it’s meant to be.

Published by Ariana R. Cherry

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
