Billowing in

Undulating thoughts
seasoned by the light cascading
rippled effects like tissue
capturing the darkness
and whisking it away into
its magnificent and invisible self.
We gather by the edges where
the rays of goodness labor away
in unity they descend upon
the latent thoughts of the masses
shrouding in beauty
gentle they come.
In empty rooms of the mind
banished of everything,
errant thoughts
and the worthless words unspoken yet still
hanging tenaciously on,
echoing in the chamber of restless minds,
we whisper with the breeze,
billowing in the centered calm
as we sit in repose waiting
for the descending day to find us
breathing softly,
and energy rolls like waves unseen
yet felt,
embraced,
and welcomed.
Silk moves like heaven
soft as feathers found on sacred ground,
tipped in darkness,
contrasted to the absolute
of the shade that encompasses all.

  1. I haven’t done a puzzle in years, but I remember finishing them and even if it was a brand new one, sometimes a piece would be missing, I would often blame the cat who for some reason, liked to sleep on the thing ๐Ÿ™‚ argh, shoo kitty….. ๐Ÿ™‚

    We keep working at it.. and the edges, well I liken the world to a giant jigsaw.. We need to fill in the edges first. they the WHOLE we labour away at piece by piece, slotting together until at last united we make the whole picture complete.. Its just sad when the box contains so many missing pieces.. But we enjoyed the process none the less in creating what we have with the pieces we find..

    Great Poem.. xxxx

  3. A remarkably sustained metaphor, and one so good it would be a candidate for the best one in any poem. You created a poetic plateau and stayed there – quite an achievement.
