A spiral of light, like music to my eyes I spun out into the golden grass The stars shining brightly above me Only seconds ago the vortex that seemed to knock me down I heard a laugh, but no one was there Maybe it was the stars The moon was too kind to laugh My silver feet began to work again Daring the stars to tip me twice The dampened earth beneath my twirling soles A cushion when the dare was done I laid there then, but Only long enough to find Pegasus Until I heard the muffled steps and swishing grass As others wandered from the trees Their candles sad mirrors Of the vortex in the sky One by one they challenged the stars That tucked them all in to a bed of laughter and golden grass I watched as they disappeared beneath the waving fronds Until I could feel the hands of the stars readying the finale Pulling me into a spiral of sweat and lazy zephyrs They too knew that this was the last dance But still I whispered up to their shining choir Daring them to stop time. Their hands were on their pocket watches Pulling out the gears A wish so close to granting you could hear the crickets pause Yet soon they stirred The spiral pushed, but laughter pushed it back No longer harmonizing to their melodic lights I fell again This time over a root My silver feet tarnished to grey And lost their shine walking back through the woods
I venture outward Past those devoured Through endless hours This adventure tower Holds uncensored power In higher spires And liars' desires Ending when I perspire In a fire retire
I must live When lust gives A chance at love I glance above A dusty cloud Through a crusty crowd To see love must be found In transcendence And dependence So I must trust And ignore rust To import thrusts Of night's passion Despite fashion
Time vortex More or less As time runs out I must decide what it's about Others help with that decision They help by making incisions And letting time bleed My emotions they read For their corporal greed I tried to plant a seed But their environment is frigid Despite my attempts to bridge it I become detached From my potential catch By days and years And waves of tears That stave off peers Until I'm an old man Feet buried in cold sand I'll say that I tried Once I'm used to the lies
with ocean eyes and words drizzled in honey i pulled you into the whirlpool that is my heart
for a while we spun beneath the stars laughing in each other’s arms for you had found a place you thought was safe and i had found a boy who fell too quickly for the tides in my eyes
around and around we spun our hearts beating to the same drum you never let go of my hand for you finally found a place to let your eyes rest and a head to lovingly lie on your chest
but things got ever so rocky when you got trapped in the vortex of my soul you walked away with blood shot eyes and tear stained cheeks i walked away with my eyes a little more gray from the tears that dripped down your face a pen dipped in the inkwell of your heart and a story to write about a boy who fell too hard
INSIDE THE EBE AND FLOW OF A MAGICAL TIDE, I WANDER. BALANCING, WITH DEEPENED BREATH. ALIGNING IN SWIRLING LIGHT. CENTERING IN VIBRATIONS WITH GOAL FOR PEACEFULNESS.
MY SACRED HEARTBEAT ECHOES WITH MUSICAL CHARM FLYING IN SONG AS IF A WINGED BEING. AS IF CARRIED IN A MUSICAL VIBRATION FOR NEW BEGINNINGS.
MOMENTS WHISPERS IN WIND, AS SOUL MERGES IN HUMAN FORM TO EXPAND. AS LIGHT DISINTEGRATES DARK IN NEW TIMES.
I TOUCH THE GENTEL VORTEX OF ANIMATED ENERGIES WITH INTENT, LETTING HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS FEED DANCING FEET THAT PIVIOT IN THE MOXIE OF PURE LOVE.
THOUGHTS BUILD WHILE ROAD MAP OPENS TO SURVEY AND CREATE INSIDE DIVINE TIMING.
DREAMS SEEDED LONG BEFORE FLOAT WITHIN, STARTING TO BLOSSOM INSIDE THE CELEBRATION OF LIFE.
MY CORE OF BEING PULSATES, WITH PURPOSE TO BE OF BENEFIT TO SELF AND HUMANITY.
FREEDOMS BELL RINGS AS OTHERS JOIN TO EMANCIPATE THE WORLD WITH COMPASSION AND LOVE.
I STAND IN DECLARATION TO BE MY AUTHENTIC SELF IN A WORLD MEANT TO THRIVE AS EVOLVED BEINGS OF LOVE. FOR ETERNITY.
AND, FOR THIS I FEEL BLESSED.
The cap button was on and when I looked up I felt guided to leave it that way. Happy reading. I experienced a floating bath yesterday. That is where you lie in a bath for an hour with no light and no sound only your heartbeat. It is called floating. You are in salt water so you float. It was amazing. This was first poem written after salt bath.
Breaking on a weathered shore The waves of time in tempest rhyme Relentless through the open space They’ve left my mind in a scattered state
The winds of change have blown this way Across the void into my dreams Upon the mountains of my mind And through the valleys they do whine
The trembling earth beneath my feet Shakes me up and all around Gravity’s tremors wrestle with me To pull me down into the ground
A raging flame roars in my ears I turn around to face the sound That fire that burns inside of me I hold it close but carefully
The churning vortex draws me in Its clutch is great and the goal is clear I spin and spin till the daylight’s gone And find no end to its endless song
There’s nothing mentioned that can’t be said But the wheels of fortune can’t be read The mind of matter can’t be defied And the rains from heaven will not be denied
When rain comes down to quench my flame When the earth turns round and pulls me down There’s very little that I can say But I choose to take it my very own way
This was a fun write in a serious sort of way. It started with a simple line a just grew from there. By the end of the first verse, there was a roadmap in mind but that roadmap kept changing right up to the last verse.
