Thursday 11/20 - A SECRET SHARED


Sharing a secret means I'm blogging another poem.
I love alliteration and this one has plenty -
lots of "S", "T", and "B".

Hear the wind whisper swisper thru the trees
Strain to hear the silver sound slisper round
Under, beneath the bumpers crashing, sirens screeching
A tap thru the din, a gentle smoothness slips

Washing, swashing, sweetly over - enclosing
Drowning tense terse tires and tracks of hot rod cars
Zooming - careening - zigzagging - the streets
Swathing to a sleepy dreamy state

Listen! Whisper calls memories, swimming pictures
Pulse deep scenes screen-projected on the brain
In touch tune tempo with source, sense;
A film truncated from trucks and towers

This spectral cast cascades in sight
As seconds slip slowly by the luminous dial
A blare, beep, blast of buses bludgeons back
Till some other breeze-filled night begins to blow
Prayer Girl

A few more notes from my 11th step retreat.
There were two reading recommendations:
"The Power of Now" and "Stillness Speaks" -
both by Eckhart Tolle.

And two thoughts:
If I pray, why worry?
If I worry, why pray?

Love you all,
Prayer Girl

Thank you prayer girl, this poem is great, and I've read it three times now, just to hear it and feel it pull me in.

Great book recommendations too!

Hugs today!

Mr. Tolle's books are beside the bed. He is soothing. I like his concept of the pain body. It helps me to think about my pain as being a tangible thing that I can keep in place if I so choose to do so.

The poem is peaceful. Thanks PG.
