pain and promise

I stir the pain and promise
of another day

living amongst the calmest tides, and
between thin wispy clouds

I await

the love within this shroud
knowing the pain delivered is filled with gold
hues

and ambiguity among truths
birthed

within the mountains cold

and dark, living inside me a mark
filled with the void of time

sung from my fingertips, to the
mountain tops

I slip

into a reverie and cannot exist
a moment longer

than is needed

I withdraw
and await the heeded, love

I hope

to carry me into the gates of my beloved
where love’s already been seeded

the resonance won…

I fell through the mirror once, and on the other side,
was you, hands clasped, and folded
neatly, you did always keep me
completely,
and
as

flowers fell from the sky, you gently made your way forward,
took my hand in yours, and then, the
question of my existence
spread…

arising in mind, the answer flooding my heart, as love
blossomed like the sun, retiring me to your
awaiting arms

the resonance, now,
won…

let compassion soar…

a candlelight vigil, dispelling the darkness, in times
crucial, heart and hearth roam free, as we
settle into the
nature of
our

persistence, understanding more, let compassion soar
into the unknown, as we prepare for
another year
bestowed

we know not
what
comes,
yet faith can
guide us from

the shadows,
and into
the

glory of each moment, taking the time to smell
the flowers, and feel the breeze caress
our hearts gently

as we unleash the power of love from the tips
of our fingers, to the tops of
every tower, for

it is in
this
insistence,
we carry love forward

to assist,
in our collective existence….

In response to the WDYS #114 prompt from Keep it Alive, by Sadje.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
