~ Soul ~

A Poem by Carola

A soul, yours and mine... so what is it... 

An ethereal entity ?  immortal ?  male, female or neither ?

Celestial for sure... breathed into us by God, unique to you and me,

Appurtenant to each and everyone, living and hovering in our hearts.

Soul, an emotional intersection of our physical and spirit,

An energy, a life force, and our very essence,

Is it wise... is it helpful... can it impart sagacity ?

Our little inner voice constantly whispering in our ears ?

My name and soul are inextricably intertwined,

My heart is aware of my soul's longings although it may not reach my brain,

My soul sways and oscillates to the rhythm of my body's heartbeat,

Oscillations that may awaken an emerging spark of godly interest.

My soul silently carries this spiritual spark and perhaps follows through,

Everyday my soul observes and learns on my life's journey and expectations,

Expectations that were ordained in the womb, and years later will impart,

Am I a new soul or an old resurrected soul, a question often comes to mind.

I really enjoyed this. The rhythm that I got from this was almost like a dance, or even moving from wave to wave. Very well done.

Brilliant. Hold on to your soul I say. It is the reason for your existence/ your being. Don't give it away as you'll be 'done' then. I have often kept it close to heart and mind.Thanks for sharing these words .
