The Dark Hole

Introverted Sage

The depths of the Soul
Where does yours go?
Levitate in silence
As the mind loses control.

Winter forest, darkness green.
Fountain flowing, endless stream.
Savant secrets, seekers dream.
Wisdom knowing, Spirit Team.

    (Brilliant! dear Poet
    please forgive my self-indulgent scribbling below
    and thank you! for inspiring them)
    inspired by introspection's guide
    we swim, in cyclic waves
    what's been , will be again..
    what we knew, rediscovered
    repackaged, as progress' new
    yet, midstream - we break
    to look back at the shore
    and W. B. Yeats' poetry
    calls out, knowingly:
    'The fury and the mire of human veins.

    Before me floats an image, man or shade,
    Shade more than man, more image than a shade;'

    'Nor storm disturbs, flames begotten of flame,
    Where blood-begotten spirits come
    And all complexities of fury leave,
    Dying into a dance,
    An agony of trance,
    An agony of flame that cannot singe a sleeve.'

    'When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
    And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
    And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
    Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

    How many loved your moments of glad grace,'

    first two verses borrowed from
    last verse from 'When you are old'

    So glad I was able to inspire.. I love how you put those together!
    The ability to even notice these cycles and waves exist is such a huge step most miss for far too long it seems. Or may be all in the right time..
    'Nor storm disturbs, flames begotten of flame,'
    Thank you!!
