Light

Light

A Poem by Lexi I.
"

Written with the idea of "Namaste" in mind; look it up--it's beautiful! It's honoring the universe that dwells within everyone, a place of truth, love, peace and light.

"

I unzip this constricting skin,

Which keeps my soul trapped in,

Which defines the way I appear

And reflects my flaws in the mirror.

 

I pour forth from the fleshy seams,

My anxious words, thoughts and dreams

Burst into the world, liberated,

Effecting changes, exhilarated.

 

Seeping, floating, my soul follows.

Without it, the body’s shell hollows.

The essence of me, stripped bare,

Heavy with life, yet light as air.

 

I inhale; the world floods my senses.

I exhale; the flood strips my defenses.

Each nuance of life seems more sprightly,

Even dimness and darkness shine brightly.

 

Without weighty chains to shackle me,

I am one with the sky, the earth, the sea:

The hummingbird flies by quite slowly,

Every snowflake, I feel it more wholly,

 

I hear the worms move in the soft earth,

I witness the apple blossom’s birth.

I feel the clouds’ gentle caresses,

I revel in the poor man’s excesses.

 

The scent of war is dissipating,

In its place, peace is assimilating.

With nothing to blind my soul’s sight,

I absorb the sun’s rays; I am the light.

Seeping, floating, my soul follows.
Without it, the body’s shell hollows.
The essence of me, stripped bare,
Heavy with life, yet light as air.

I inhale; the world floods my senses.
I exhale; the flood strips my defenses.
Each nuance of life seems more sprightly,
Even dimness and darkness shine brightly........these lines are really very powerful.......i liked yer way of working.

Thank you!
I love rhyming quatrains with wisdom. If only I could follow the light and see the hummingbird fly slowly.

You've most definitely got a knack for fluid imagery, I thoroughly enjoyed this.

I always enjoy awakening pieces.

Thank you very much! Sometimes my poetic efforts have some success, I guess! :)
The concept of your write is that of love, peace, and the light within us - Ah, yes NAMASTE!! You have been able to convey the meaning of the word in so many beautiful ways. When we embrace the light and let it dwell within us, we are able to be unshackled, revel in the poor man's excesses, and realize that peace is the answer to joy within our soul.
May the light continue to reach all those who embrace you!!

some nice lines here:

Seeping, floating, my soul follows.
Without it, the body’s shell hollows.

I hear the worms move in the soft earth,
I witness the apple blossom’s birth.

With nothing to blind my soul’s sight,
I absorb the sun’s rays; I am the light.

what a wonderful pen you posess!

thank you for sharing it with us :)
