dusk arising

through a glass darkly

The creator had watched
and now gently held
the old warm, quite dead hand
"come my spirit child
let us share together 
the wisdom of your journey
and prepare.
There is much ahead"

    You are so unpredictable. This is very nuanced, very intense... no fairy story this time! I hope you are close to right! At our ages we still feel we have much to prepare for, and that our long journey is just the beginning of something... thanks! My last read for the night on MPS.

      Thank you so much. I'm a believer in reincrnation so hoping there's truth in this expression yes.

      Our Spirits will always move forward d a.


      • dusk arising

        Yes, forward ever forward. A mystery of consciousness.

        Good morning dear Dusk, this one gave me goosebumps, excellent emotional play on words. Hope all is well dear friend. X

          I think there is no greater satisfaction for any writer than to know their work has touched the emotions of their reader. To see that this gave you goosebumps really pleases me. We all have our life experience and along the way pick up things which will stay with us for ever, emotional baggage we might call these things, and on occasion a piece of writing can 'touch a nerve' which is possibly what happened for you my friend.

          • Teddy.15

            Yes, and i always leave my genuine thoughts so that's the greatest compliment to you my friend.

          • Poetic Dan

            • L. B. Mek

              too much, for one life time..
              such wise words, dear Poet
              they just invade and overwhelm, invoking so many raw/repressed feeling's..
              I really wish there was a universal way, to get across to people
              just how futile it is, to waste your life
              focusing on the negative..
              we'll all be food for worms, so soon!
              surely that bleak reality, must be enough to keep us focussed on the positives we can attain...
              however little, or infrequent
              we must treasure this experience of existence, desperately...
              (that is what your brief words, conveyed to me Dusk
              and for that, I thank you sincerely)

                I'm pleased those thoughts came to you from my few words here LBM. I count myself lucky to be a positive minded person.

                Beautiful, Dusk.

              • Jay-Lee Jane

                Beautiful, chilling write.

                • dusk arising

                  Thank you Jay-Lee Jane. One day we shall all find out if theres a whisper of truth in my piece. I certainly hope there is and that spiritual life goes on.
