Fay Slimm.





What is deep I want fiercely.
What is heart-moving I need to feel.
In what is adventure I wish to partake
and live to fulfillment.

If time and chance allow me to dive
into experience I shall leave the shallows.
With wings boldly grown
what is known as free flight I want to try.

I intend learning the meaning of life's
hidden music.
If there are tunes sweeter dreams feed on
these I will start to sing.

So come forward potential.
I have mantra's mystique to re-invent inner
sensory limitations.
With what are catalysts for energy change
I want a positive avalanche.

If love means completion I shall barter no
more and surrender willingly.
What is bliss I want to fill with and give
my best to the saga of living.

                • Bella Shepard

                  The pic that accompanies this poem speaks so beautifully of embracing all that life has to give. It speaks of giving ones self up to the freedom to be, to explore, to love. This is just breathtaking dear Fay, and at this later stage of my life I truly see the value of not missing a minute. Thank you for this gem!

                  • Fay Slimm.
