Monday, 3/23/09 - "I AM ALONE"
"I AM ALONE"
I AM ALONE I am alone Amidst a wide expanse Of flame and frenzy bright I tower far above A meadow bursting forth In wild, profuse delight
I am alone Yet know a voice Of petals bending in the breeze I reach to hear Yet only catch the wind I listen past my ears
And I hear the vastness Of the thousand petals Stretching out beyond my sight A feather bed in which to lie Cascade around my head A velvet, silk-soft coverlet
And I am not alone Nor alien in their midst They offer forth their honey scent Show off their coverings bright Bend gently to my softest touch And whisper we are one Prayer Girl Of all the poems that I have written, this one is my favorite. It lifts me up, encourages me, fills me with comfort, and connects me with something bigger than myself. I need that.
I'm sober in AA since July 5th 1985, and a grateful member of Alanon since November 2004.
I joined the "blogosphere" in September, 2008.
In December 2011 I became a grandmother for the first time and now understand why it's such a big deal. I'm wildly in love again with that little guy.
