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.
