Within the Reach of My Two Arms

Within the Reach of My Two Arms

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm

A piece of life's hair is let down, listening to this song............


Within the reach of my two arms, my world is exhilarating
The earth knows I understand, why it turns
Gone, are all mere fantasies, perhaps just as well
One kiss and I saw smoke, felt the fire burn

My thoughts went out searching for God’s desire for me
On the edges of eventually and pretty soon
Found a star that sang this song into all my views
Until all that remained inside of me was you

Let me show a thousand waves from a life of happiness
A kingdom looking back in wondrous bliss
I wish to sit awhile, not speak, and just watch the tide
Stray from a few words, awakening a kiss

A piece of life’s hair is let down listening to this song
Never reaching shadows that dance along
Yet, it enters the rooms within my sight and brings
You, into the reach of my two arms
Regardless of whether
Right or wrong

love the picture - you always find the perfect accompaniments to your works - and that opening line - "Within the reach of my two arms, my world is exhilarating" - such an idea - between the fingers and hands and mind the world is as we want it to be - and "life's hair" - delicate phrasing - nice!

You certainly bring these pictures to life with your words... confidence is what give a dream its wings... and your wings are that of an Eagle.
