Perpetual/#Poetry

When life whispered to my soul,

calling the blush onto my cheek,

 

31DE8CFC-98DC-46A9-AF6E-3780D9403DF4

 

I sensed the continuity of existence

 

6D688D56-5201-4D20-8378-06B3830D484C

 

coursing hotly through my veins,

inciting me to breathe as I reached

towards the receding Light that sent me

into such a life as lay before my

newly awakened consciousness.

Slowly…..

My essence unfurled upon Life’s velveteen

blanket of sweet newness, fresh, wet

and innocent, my mind quickly numbed

as all knowledge receded into gray matter-

a clean slate awaiting the writing of my story-

Sweet forgetting left me hungry,

longing filled my being, drove me on

into the moments of pleasure, pain,

as I climbed the summit and fell again-

too many times, it seems, like

so many dreams until my soul

emerged from hibernation,

ancient holy realization

set in.

Thus I begin…

the fading, as evading life’s cold hand

I cling to memory-the heart of me

in disbelief does comprehend an

eventual end to the great pretend.

Time again for transformation,

cast off the rock in deportation,

the cycle of rejuvenation

must go on,

for old and faded though I be…

I shall go home,

heeding my Creator’s call

and weary at the door I fall,

be comforted and take my rest,

make ready for the next return

to live and laugh, love and learn-

Perpetual….
