A Majestic Presence

The cool kisses of autumn’s breath
Gently stirred my soul
I heard its tender whisperings
Of ancient truths untold

The tranquil mists of silence
Gracefully set down
In my mind I now was free
The jewels of life I found

But then the fingers of darkness
Clutched desperately to mind
Sweet silence muffled by chaos
The jewels of life confined

Just as the memory was fading
And darkness appeared to rule
A majestic presence dwelling within
Became my guiding tool

I know now the seasons of mind
Will come and go as they please
Unswerving is the presence within
That will guide and set me free

Really?? Oh my goodness who would have thought meditation leads to that?? Astounding!!! Personally I haven't done TM but I have heard others experiences. Diverse in nature and very interesting to listen to!

I am still stunned about the franchise. Off now to investigate TM.

Thanks again for your comments!

I'm here from "Prisoners of the Mind". I used to do Transcendental Meditation in the day. You have done a good job of creating the atmosphere of that kind of technique. As I progressed in the discipline, I learned that when you reach the higher levels in the organization . . . you get an oriental furniture franchise.

Truly wonderful. I hardly know what to say. This poem connected with me in so many ways. It gave me hope (and that, I suppose, is one of the finest things that anyone can give someone). Thank you.

Hello pennyofheaven, this makes me want to stand perfectly still, feel the breeze, cup my hands to catch a breath of the wind and then close my eyes with my face looking up, perhaps to kiss the autumn touch. How beautiful! Thank you! CM

The majestic presence takes over our souls at times and leads us to show creativity and pen words that only a guided hand can pen. Imagery is so perfect and in this verse it's abundant. I like your style, you have the brush of an artist, creating with either dark or light colors that suits your mood. Bravo..rated UP
