Wednesday 11/4/09 - "I AM ALONE"


I call this an almost wordless Wednesday because I have blogged this poem before. It is my favorite, most cherished one and these pictures are a visual expression of the words I wrote.


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

Lovely PG. Pic's are beautiful. The poem expresses what happens to me when I mediate in nature, all my sense come alive to the sounds and smells around.

Thanks for sharing.
