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!

fantastic ending. love that.

yes the simplicity works, as for the repetition. you kept it at a good length, considering you were choosing to repeat so much.

"I trust the wind
I trust its winding ways"

lol i loved that. and the last line was great :)

hugs

Very nice work. It's simple, and repetitive, but it really works for some reason. I enjoyed the message as well.

I like this, its almost like a chant. I love the line "I trust the crimson waves" Nicely done.

It's funny--I was thinking just like this poem last night. This world is so twisted and dirty and angry and f****** up sometimes, that all you can do is to count the things that you can count on. "I know this trust saves ME." Amen. Great job with this simplicity! K
