Walking across water

Walking across water

A Poem by Muse

 

 

 

 

 

You are a mortal with an immortal's soul

 

listening...        

 

 

to the platonic voices of reasoning

 

owning a conscience that filled you with clarity  

 

confident hands that divided the seasons

 

composing...       

 

words of symmetry and curiosity

 

revealing your awesome beauty and mystery    

 

your two feet barely touched the dirt of the earth

 

you preferred...       

 

to walk across water or walking on air

 

gravity seemed to move your energy elsewhere  

 

the cosmos gifted you with a gratis life

 

you knew not...       

 

how lucky you were and how lucky you was

 

to be weightless and do whatever just because

This reminds me of someone so close to heart and then so out of reach. Almost like a lover never touched. Of course I relate everything to my life because I'm selfish that way lol... but honestly it touched that part of me, that waits on the other side.. with arms wrapped around my knees and simply silent...xo "breathe me"... sigh

That's what I loved about it. The clarity is there to cross and the fog doesn't seem to be forebodi.. read more

You know Breath (I mean Beth), whenever I want to read a well crafted, emotional, complete poem, I always take a look at something you have written. You NEVER disappoint. You have a beautiful way of expressing a feeling..an experience...a revelation. Your words flow across the page effortlessly and I literally can't wait to read the next stanza, the next line......the next word.
Another wonderful write Beth....How lucky I am!!

When you experience a feeling of being free, free to explore and discover who you really are it really does feel like you are weightless, weightless from the heavy burden of life's troubles and strives. just for that moment your able to walk across the water because.... You have an inner strength that is telling you....YOU CAN.....and no one else but you knows this.

Thanks for sharing muse......

You know, I don't believe in God or an afterlife, but I'm reminded of a sentiment that I've always liked, namely a quote by C.S. Lewis. Something to the effect of "you don't have a soul, you ARE a soul. You HAVE a body."

It's a very nice thought, the wanderlust of the spirit and the desire to be at one with everything while being separate from it. I've always found it odd when people say that the insignificance of their existence comparison to the scale of the universe depressed them. I've always thought, why? It's a great, big, wonderful cosmos and you get to be a part of it. The greatest afterlife would be eternal flight of the soul to all the corners of existence, free and with plenty of time to see and learn everything.

Just my opinion.

Namaste, friend.

it just takes courage- to take those first few steps;
the mist will clear,
and the treasure waiting for you
on the other side
will reveal itself.

How did you know? You paint such richly emotive colors on your canvas and the journey unfolds across the time and seasons... and somehow never ends... Weightless is my wish...
