Fay Slimm.






Soaked in deep mystery,
conceived through life's troublesome times
and caught invitingly inside breath stands a
vision of loveliness lost but readily regained
because intuition insists.


Wild dreams become tamed
when flowering insight blossoms yet never
wilts with allowed ire nor is ever sightless
this love-breath, knowing freshness could
not exist if blindness remained.


As a white whispering dove
will stay quiet until high-flying then stride
into heaven itself to release a dream held
fast inside so are aspects of breath felt by 
those having felt the breath of love.

          The last verse got me. To me it speaks of repressed desire now released upon sharing the wealth of true love again.
          Wonderful weaving of embroidered metaphor throughout.

          • Fay Slimm.

            Ah - - you were quite near the mark with the feel of the final stanza D.A. - - so grateful for your visit and read of Knowing.

            Thanks FAY for sharing & caring with this awesome Ode ! The experience of Love & being in Love is indeed a many splendoured thng ! When it enters our LIVES we surely KNOW it even though we cant always epressit verbally. Love is indeed better felt than telt ! All those we love (or have loved) are firmly etched in our sub-conscious. Recall can result in intense joy but also intense pain ! Love never wilts and from time to time our minds (and hormones !) release a fresh bredth & depth of Love ! Thats how it is with US ~ Amen. Thanks for undestanding !

            Love - Joy & Peace to YOU
            Yours ANGELA & BRIAN

            That mystery of love is always in us and looking for the answer to the mystery always pulls us further into the depths of love.
            Another wonderful write Fay, this will have to go into favourites.
