Speak to me

Speak to me

A Poem by Inkcognito

In the stifling darkness
of my angry moment
while heavy clouds
threatened to envelop me
I raised my voice and
called out loud
“Speak to me, please!..”
the moment hung
in silent stillness
I felt abandoned
quite alone
but then he spoke
soundless words
washed over me
in a radiant glow
of love


he bestowed upon me
graceful words of peace
soothed me with his
weathered wisdoms
enthralled me

with kindly tones of
secret understanding
he rocked me

pacified me
and brought my mind
back to tranquil ease


never have I heard
a silent voice
ring with such clarity
like a choir of angels
but it came
from deep within
the slender fingers
of magical light
that was cast
so warmly

upon my being


and I am thankful
that I mustered
the strength
the courage
to call out to him 
for suddenly
my day turned
and splendidly

You always bring such grace into your work.. you lift us up, and lay us down softly, sweetly in the quiet heart called you... well done, very well done..

i love how not only is this is a stunning description of this picture, but it's also a metaphorical construct for gaining the "holy spirit"....so-to-speak. you're calling out and the answer to your calling is more beautiful than you can imagine. the answer "rocked...[and] pacified [you]...back to tranquil ease." it reminds me of crying out to God and receiving the holy spirit....you know i know my name is Light, but feel free to call me God whenever you like. ;-)....bye

Far Away

Look up

asking, “Where are you?”

Come, if you are out there at all.

I need help.

See white clouds in an azure sky

listen for a still reply,

. amazingly stunning and inspiring poetry ... epic words and an epic picture ... that inner voice is known by many names in many cultures ... but it keeps people going ... and that's what's most significant ... and if there is any peace on earth ... it's because of that voice ... excellent work, dear inkcognito ... and it's good to see you again ... hope your break was rewarding ... :) ...
