You Could Be Free

You Could Be Free

A Poem by Jaye Yee-Vandalyn

Purity of water,
Milky turquoise of colour,
Once glaciers.
Now melt to serve,
A purpose it never dreamed it would.

Where such beauty rose from destruction,
I lap at the immense hope,
That suffering in this world would pass.
The end, an evolution to
A state of infinite tranquillity.

Luminescent reflection of emerald waters.
Glimmering, swimming about was
All the beautiful dreams,
People dreamed for this world.
They lived on.

Forgotten by us, they incubate;
Patiently synthesize.
And Dreams would,
They promised me.
One day. Come True.

An invisible shield, it was.
For a moment, I forgot,
the hatred,
the wars,
Societal pressures.

An illusion so breath-taking.
A feat only Mother Nature could conjure.
In those waters she hid them.
Those dreams.
For a magician never reveals its secrets.

It was a gift.
For those who dare escape,
The clutches of lives,
Perfectly choreographed,
By institutions and states.

Outside your window.
Nature begs,
For you to be free.

I do agree.
Outside your window.
Nature begs,
For you to be free"
In the safety of nature, we can know beauty and free-mind again. Thank you Jaye for sharing the excellent poetry.
