I get mesmerized by shades of life,
Purples into blue
Sweet lavender hue sweeping across skies
In the depths of my mind,
Remembering once upon a time
Before it softly drifts away.
I close my eyes and surrender to quiet
Fueled by the present beating of a heart like a drum
Softly played in the distance
Breathing in and out
Trying to capture the essence
Vanilla and jasmine on the wind
Playfully distracting me
From the task at hand.
I move deeper into the shallow spaces
Beneath an image I project in place
Of what should be
Yet denied the total immersion
Into the waiting hands of
A blissful moment.
So I go back in time
To that place of a sky torn in two
Between darkness and light
I ride the fine line
Knowing I will be blown on the winds of change
To where I need to be.
