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

such a lovely airy feeling, and the music adds even more to your mystery, may the "you" and "your" of this piece be forever blessed by your word choice..

~ oh, this is epic work... reminds me of one of my favourite books... it's called "the unbearable lightness of being"... and is written by milan kundera... the sense of flight in this piece is absolutely stunning... it would be amazing to live life with so much depth yet lightness... this is the magnificence of a profound consciousness... ~ awe-inspiring work, beth... immensely inspiring... it's like an ode to poetry and the beauty of life...

Some people just do not appreciate or utilize their talents and therefore miss out on opportunities within their grasp. That is what I take from the poem.

Great to see you writing again.

I really enjoyed the pure potential and open-possibility of this, also the phrasing really appealed to my ear.
