Just a sip

We float amongst the beautiful things
watching the ripples move out from our lives
absorbed in the depths
of another’s soul of words,
we long for that beauty
to call our own.
We linger in our reflections,
distortion of thought marring our view
as waves crash over in the dark
we lose sight of the moon for but a moment
then remember with the light
of a distant star
we are who we are.
Standing in the shallows
we dig our toes down in the unseen,
lingering on edges and softness
we free ourselves from the silt
shaking it off
we cleanse our images in the cool water,
we sip just a bit
to remember the taste
of our life blood
coursing through unencumbered,
we dye the sky
with our worth.
Knowing as we depart
still finding solid ground,
we were always enough.
For we are what lies within,
unseen yet felt
activated vibration and energy
and the will of amazing strength,
forged of the universe we rise
and stand tall.

    This poem from the site INFINITEZIP is one of the best poems I’ve read in a blog. And there are more when that came from. Check it out.

  4. thanks Betty, been doing a lot of reading, something which I never make time to do, found an ebook I downloaded and read a lot of that, I can’t figure out who wrote the darn thing but it’s from a man who went through a life changing crisis and through his readings, what he found about self/I am, etc…fascinating reading that resonates like a rhythm to me ๐Ÿ™‚ glad you enjoyed it, OM โค

  5. Thank you Tammy,
    I wrote it after reading some other pieces of works,
    For a moment wishing I could write that good
    And realizing that I am what I write
    And for my soul
    That is more than enough and I am truly blessed indeed.
    Peace and love,
    Kim

  8. Kim, this is appropriately titled, especially because of these lines:

    “we cleanse our images in the cool water,
    we sip just a bit
    to remember the taste
    of our life blood
    coursing through unencumbered
    we dye the sky
    with our worth.
    Knowing as we depart
    finding solid ground
    we were always enough
    for we are what lies within,
    unseen yet felt”

    What a brilliant write. ๐Ÿ™‚
