Saves Me

Saves Me

A Poem by Natasha Ashway
"

A simple philosophy for life.

"

I trust the night
I trust the stars that shine

I trust the moon
I know its love’s divine

I trust the wind
I trust its winding ways

I trust the sky
I know its separate days
I trust the dawn
I trust its rising light
I trust the sun
I know its blinding sight
I trust the clouds
I trust the crimson waves
I trust the things I love
I know that this trust saves
Me.

Thanks for the rolling rhythmic reminder!

It amounts to an incantation to trusting Life itself.

And synchronicitously, I got a message that helped clarify an issue of trust, just before I read your spiritually valuable poem.

I've been noting a kind of poem on WC that has this heart-healing universality -- I call 'em poster poems, because of the truth-reminder value. This is another fine one of that ilk, with image of your choice. And I love your montage-like choice of "trust" referents.

Excellent work!

This is beautifully penned. I like how you constructed each verse and segmented them into a flowing poem. I thought of the magic that sparkles and how I felt, while reading this poem. The feeling was truly inspirational. Nicely written.

I love to wake up to the wonderful things in life and to trust that, if they do remain unseen for a while, they eventually will make their way back: the sun that kisses the bay, the wonderful tide as it charts its course back over the sand, and the beautiful birds as they frolic over land and water.

This trust shall also save me! -Nihad

Absolutely stunning. My favorite poem/prayer ever is the one we learn as children.

I see the moon
the moon sees me
God bless the moon
and God bless me.

a simple philosophy for life, trust in saving grace, your passionate soul surrendered every word
with specific design, and that allowing, draws the reader to delving contemplation, the entire
vision leaves the reader feeling enlightened, as the encapsulating rhymes accentuate the eloquent flow,
natasha, this poem reveals the heart like an open book, its exquisite in the sense the meaning
is uplifting, encouraging, sentimentally intellectualized, the images are purey dreamy, gorgeous
painting, the details reflect the stars sparkle, shows a true knowledge and insight, thank you.
