Falling…

6 Comments

                                       
falling slowly
slowly falling
gliding through a timeless place
mystery and magic, unfolds
                                                                                                                                                             

 

gossamer sight; limited vision
circular walls, a blur
 taking in another small fragment
 with each unexpected visit
enlightenment dawns at daybreak
                                
                                      
warmth against the chill
buttercup sun, beckons from above
a veil of stars, seen below
air, clean, refreshing and pure
a fragrance, sweet as spring lilacs
           
                                                                                 
no  fear
no resounding thuds
in this suspended space
voices from the other side?
perhaps a verse from a distant lullaby?
 the past,present and future
merged into one recurring dream 
              
                                                                
falling…
oh so
softly
slowly
falling

  1. somehow this reminds me of a journey through space, like a chant or some hypnosis, soothing. I really like “buttercup sun” – it just sounds so sweet and happy

  2. There is a gentleness to this poem that is mesmerising. It is like listening to river water flow over stones. I am relaxed and dreamy after reading it, wrapped in gossamer!

  3. This poem feels like a great embrace. Beautiful.

  4. Hi Lissa, Glad you found this a soothing read!

    Hi Mia, Thanks dear.

    Hi Selma, Oh, I like that description very much. Thanks Sel.

    Hi Sandy C, I felt that too, when I re-read it. Thanks so much Sandy.

    Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, G

  5. so lovely G – so sorry I’m so behind with my reading – have missed visiting you here, seeing you at the crossing – I just love the airy peace in this poem and the different perspectives 🙂 hugs!
