A Poem by Alistair (Ali)

Have 
come to quiet
the voices
to wrap them in
sea-fret,  to set
them aside for a while.
Rest ankles in campion barrows,
to search for the wonder
we lost in the chase for tomorrow.
To smile with the guise of a child,
if the moment be woken,

And, should it arise
from my somber entwines,

exalt in the pleasure of being,
supine in the seconds
of mystical present. Alive
in the genuine time
of my life.

Have 
come to quiet
the voices
To wrap them in
sea- fret  to set
Them aside for a while

"exalt in the pleasure of being". Those words speak to me Ali, saying it is time to live in the now. That is not an easy thing to do. Many live on memories alone, some look ahead in time, but living each day and truly appreciating each moment is difficult and yet can be so rewarding. Yes, wrap those voices up and leave them for a while and for a chance of tranquility, for some peace. Beautiful lines, especially your word choice in the first stanza.

Captivating piece - It seems to encapsulate that singular moment of divinity within a person's soul. The wordplay is even more poignant; as you finish hao you started - a completion of a circle of an emotional peak ... :-)

Beautifully modulated words that achieve what I think only poetry can - the sound, the sense and the tempo working together to produce profound meaning

You are coming with Your most wondrous, deeply touching spiritual pieces, and here is something I wish to write alike, I feel selflessness... complete selflessness... to abandon Your own pain and swim into the air of a child laughter... to connect with that mysterious power out there and get high, very beautiful my friend, very moving, tender sensitive and loving.
