An early poem
Echoes - Stormwolf
His song comes to me in the morning,
and I run towards its echo.
Tumbling over cobblestones of sleep
to meet in that strange dawn,
where golden light
negates our shadows
and we are pure.
Melting moments in eternity,
melded together by one voice
and shared vision of a New Jerusalem.
somewhere in the clouds.
Safely concealed behind closed eyes,
tightly held and treasured
jewels from our deserts;
Now open to share with those
with eyes to see in fractals
of the soul in notes.

I instantly understand the morning sounds dusted with affection and purity in the poem I just read a little too late, maybe after a prolonged hiatus? Such a pleasure to read your thoughts. I am now listening to a mantra, a shiv mantra which is monosyllabic …just the word Sambhu chanted in four different notes as I read and reread and reread the lines of an early poem.
Bless you Supratik.:-)
This one sort of came through me without too much participation on my part. 🙂
That happens sometimes and I have to read it to see what it’s all about lol.
It’s basically a love poem describing a divine connection to a man I loved and the intricate connection we shared on another level from the ordinary.
We had both walked through the desert and brough back treasure to share.
Omg is there no way to correct typos in comments?
I am not finding the new site all that easy to navigate. 🙁
Hallelujah ta Trev! 🙂
Enjoyed reading your intricately woven poesy with choicest metaphors and rich imagery. You make the reader see and hear the echoes. A beautiful share Alison! Best Wishes, Gomathi
Thanks so much Gomathi,
Glad you liked it.
Oh how wonderful to see you back, Alison! And with a lovely submission like this no less. I appreciate this from the conception to the fruition. You have provided us with rich imagery, and this has an almost dreamlike quality in and of itself. I particularly loved your final stanza. And this piece will resonate with me for a long time, I think.
Hi Jolen! 😉
Glad you liked it. I decided to start with an old one to break myself back into posting. In the time I had been away I had forgotten how anything works so when tired it was too tempting to be my usual procrastinating self!
Now I feel more like back in the swing. I will try to write new stuff but if all else fails I will post old ones haha
I love the idea of Melting moments in eternity, melded together by one voice and shared vision of a new Jerusalem.
That special someone who comes into your life and you both feel the same. Sometimes words are not needed to express your feelings, but in this case I think you’ve conveyed those sentiments perfectly.
Very enjoyable read.
Thank you so much for reading and your lovely comments.
Yes, when one sees the world perhaps in a different way to many, to share profoundly with another like minded spirit, is incredibly precious.
You have so many superb lines here Alison, I especially love the 3rd line ‘Tumbling over cobblestones of sleep’
Thank you Sue. I feel it describes my eagerness to meet that person in the world of half waking where often the subconscious holds sway 😉
