~ Soul ~

A Poem by Carola

A soul, yours and mine... so what is it... 

An ethereal entity ?  immortal ?  male, female or neither ?

Celestial for sure... breathed into us by God, unique to you and me,

Appurtenant to each and everyone, living and hovering in our hearts.


Soul, an emotional intersection of our physical and spirit,

An energy, a life force, and our very essence,

Is it wise... is it helpful... can it impart sagacity ?

Our little inner voice constantly whispering in our ears ?


My name and soul are inextricably intertwined,

My heart is aware of my soul's longings although it may not reach my brain,

My soul sways and oscillates to the rhythm of my body's heartbeat,

Oscillations that may awaken an emerging spark of godly interest.


My soul silently carries this spiritual spark and perhaps follows through,

Everyday my soul observes and learns on my life's journey and expectations,

Expectations that were ordained in the womb, and years later will emerge,

Am I a new soul or an old resurrected soul, a question often comes to mind.

I believe more to life and death than we know.
"Am I a new soul or an old resurrected soul, a question often comes to mind."
In my dreams. I see other places and other lives. I do believe in karma. Good life lead to good places and bad life lead to three-fold payment a-coming. Thank you Carola for sharing the excellent poetry. I like poetry that ask questions.

Mind body and 'soul'. These three work in unison - I believe, but along the way I have learned to seperate the three. Very often we quote," I love you with all my heart and soul!" I feel we should give away, if we like, everything but cling steadfastly to our soul. All is lost if we give that away - you then 'belong' to the recipient! Secon review but I feel this needed to be said.

reading through this poem again i felt the need to change the last word in the 2nd last line from 'impart ' to 'emerge'

beautifully said ... deep, meditative and honest ... its the "Great I Am" eh!? consciousness ... your poem is so inspiring to me ... i love all the interweavings it brings to mind ... the soul, brain, heart and essence .. when i took required science courses in college we studied Carbon Science in which all matter can be reduced to Carbon .. other sciences had of course brought it even closer to that one particle of energy that bursts into Light ... my opinion? love your use of language and free verse ... inspired in a powerful way .. meditative .. beautiful truths in living and thinking ...

ps. i don't think we go around more that once ... its plenty enough as it is ;)))))))))))))))

I really enjoyed this. The rhythm that I got from this was almost like a dance, or even moving from wave to wave. Very well done.

Brilliant. Hold on to your soul I say. It is the reason for your existence/ your being. Don't give it away as you'll be 'done' then. I have often kept it close to heart and mind.Thanks for sharing these words .
