A litany of manic adventures

Folder: 
OBSERVATIONS...

Such a playful synergy 

Your heart strings and mine 

Thrumming on our frequencies 

Drawing fourth sacred energy 

Running on light beams 

Dipping our toes into notes 

And hands wafting in melodies 

Dizzying highs and resounding lows 

Shattering boredom 

Stepping on apathy 

And plucking joy from the air  

A glorious spiritual liturgy 

How beautiful now since we've learned to pray 

Drawing such sublime adventures 

Going this way and that 

Shuffling the order of truths and mystic mysteries 

Coming full circle where withall

then bounding off again.  

Such a lifting of feet 

a symphony of etherial musings 

The tethering of our minds eyes

innocent daydreams

Making a mockery of darkness 

Shining in the glory light beams

Bloated with gladness 

Soaring with hopes

Soul Edifying

And that's just the beginning 

Of our poetry.

I often tell you you make me

I often tell you you make me smile, but that's not a "small" comment,Smooth, it's brevity for the expansiveness of my heart every time I come here.  Even when you're letting us have it, your energy and spirit and wit is intoxicating. You are so much without being too much, and I just love you to pieces! This poem is sooo you...larger than life, even. That's only one reason I love it. The title itself is a poetic joy! And then, with you "plucking joy from the air"/ "shuffling the order of truths and mystic mysteries"and "making a mockery of darkness", (which actually made me laugh btw) well what's not to love about all of that?!  

This is beautiful, and fun, and spiritual, and fantastic, all in one delicious morsel. Just like I said, "it's sooo YOU" and ALL of that makes me smile...a lot Smile

Like tuning forks, your

Like tuning forks, your electrifying lines set the reader's vibrations to the frequency of a highly evolved connection. Using metaphors for sound (the building materials of the universe itself) you constructed a voyage into the deep realm of "sacred energy", "a symphony of etherial musings" and  a "spiritual liturgy" that encompasses all of life's richness of experience, from "Dizzying highs" to "resounding lows". And isn't that why we're here? To experience it all, to expand by "Shuffling the order of truths and mystic mysteries/  Coming full circle where withall/ then bounding off again."? 

 

With spiritual references and ecstatic, striking language, you make these "manic adventures", simultaneously harrowing and glorious and absolutely worth every moment, feel like a privilege, not a burden.

 

What's truly transporting is the way this poem never lands, but suggests a never-ending union between individuals and all consciousness.

 

An opulently constructed banquet for the heart and soul. Rapturous and wondrous!

I am completely sure you live

I am completely sure you live in my mind! I wish inhad not the pain in my hand to write what is truly deserving of you and your perfect perfunctory epigenetics that are so perceptive and so eloquent a grand master teacher, yes a poet and interpreter of inspirations, precise and meticulous yet not more than is necessary to convey! Truly a jewel in the crown of creation 

Mauch love Life and joy, hugss

Aww thanks and I you! I'm

Aww thanks and I you! I'm around but have injured my dominant hand and have chronic referred pain syndrome. Everything takes so long with my other hand. I am now part machine screws and rods... but I am around here and there I try and read as many as I can and comment where I can. Inspiration can run dry quicker. I try to give a read for a read and a comment for a comment but the last year i just cannot. Pain is my old friend, but a chameleon always changing... hiding and reappearing in new places and new ways, but staying positive and strong is a duty and an honour!

This is an excellent poem,

This is an excellent poem, and you deploy the metaphor of music quite well.  The center of the poem is in the lines "And plucking joy from the air / A glorious spiritual liturgy / How beautiful now since we've learned to pray . . ."  And the last four lines shows the effect of the process described in the poem's center.  The hopefulness conveyed in this poem is like a cup of cool water in the scorching heat of the desert of our squabbles and despairs in this difficult time.


Enjoy effulgent days, and exquisite nights,

unto the exultations of Heaven.
