Reaching

Updated on July 26, 2011


Reaching


You create

and keep on reaching

trying to prove something

or improve this life


Words or silences

each with a language

saying so much

eager to be


Words of wisdom

words of fury

Are words your craft

with which you carve?


Dissecting with truth

that which can be told.

Your stories

with knowledge profound


Tales of passion

so deep. so keep reaching

Underneath everything

bare bones of life


Fragrant, approaching

the knowledge of people

under your spell

the barriers break


Speaking to everyone

speaking to me

sacrifices made

to hear it alone.


For public consumption

or private tuition

the language is gifted

always understood


Locked in this brain

no escape. No respite.

Delicious. Transparent.

Suspicion removed.


Reading the words

I see you. I hear you.

The spirit through writing

travelling so well.


To pass over the knowledge

A part of the person.

The soul. The gift.

The spirit going on.


Soulful, truthful, sensual, sexual, spiritual.

Beast of creation.

Passing on this gift.

So ripe and sure.


Enigmatic,powerful

Language alive and poetic

Awaiting more.

To search and be sure and arrive safely.

      Thank you! I see much in the words you weave - a journey shared - words whispered - emotions shouted - stories told to be held until the ripeness of the mind unfolds. Thank you again and again....

      Great choice of words and this poem is very deep as well. Too deep for me. HAHAHA. I can't seem to understand some lines at first but after I read it a couple of times, I somehow realized what they meant.

      I really love it. Voted up!

      Regards,

      Alma

      Ha. Ha. attemptedhumour Yes it was just a lot of words and images that came to mind about reading and writing, especially on hubpages where you can read about a lot of different things in a couple of minutes. Hopefully though something humorous will come to me soon and i can write things like that again!! Cheers. Michael.

      Have you been meditating? This is rather profound and darkly interesting. It's a step up in my book. If you keep going in this direction, you'll have Shakespeare looking over his shoulder. See ya!
