Louis Gibbs


As our

Ancient souls

Shift once again

Into a new dimension

Accompanied by the requisite

Madness and trepidation


It is incumbent upon us

To listen to our soul's memory

And be calmed in the knowledge

We've passed through this portal

Many, many times before.



See you on the other side!

    Good write, see you there Louis.

    • Louis Gibbs

      I look forward to our meeting, Goldie! Thanks for your comment.

      although I had to discover what 'incumbent' means, your wonderful writing scared me a little because I am now believing we may be speaking to these spirits from our 'ancient souls'. how do we know if they show up in another dimension like you mentioned. oh dear, what have you done? a great write, my friend. scary but written with authority over these spirits.

      • Louis Gibbs

        Our ancient souls are, of course, are our own true selves, and they are immortal. I'm sure they will still be around in the next scenes of whatever script awaits us.
        Thank you so much, Kevin, for sharing your thoughts, and for your kind input on my poem!

        As someone said to me only yesterday: 'Not sure I want to go to heaven - look at all the people I'll have to mix with' A great write Frank.

        • Louis Gibbs

          I can appreciate what your friend meant, Michael. But alas, such is the fate of those who go to "heaven". As for me, I'll take the "real" afterlife of continued learning and assisting embodied souls, as I believe.
          I'll tell Frank you liked his poem when I see him. Many thanks!

          • Michael Edwards

            Forgive me Louis - think I must be closer to heaven than I thought.

            You been on the sherry? Anchient?! Ooh I dunno, sounds spooky to me.
            And I thought you were having a new Vicar, with 'incumbent'?! I've lost the plot of this poem. lol.

            • Louis Gibbs

              Not to worry, 'O'. Let's both have some sherry and try not to think about it. Thanks for your comment!

              • orchidee

                Well, it might be an old way of spelling it. Yesh, maybe! Oops I've started on the sherry - see that 'yes?' lol.

                Anticipation is the answer to future transition Louis as I believe "the best is yet to come" - - an absorbing read.

                • Louis Gibbs

                  I concur one hundred percent ... let's enjoy the anticipation of the best to come together, Fay. Your comment is much appreciated!

                  That was beautiful Louis.

                  Life is indeed a journey. One should not fear death. I had a cousin in New Zealand who was sadly diagnosed with a terminal illness and consequently died.

                  What was remarkable was how in the last moments of his life he made the most of his life achieving everything he needed to do. He even chose the exact burial spot where he was to be buried. He did not fear death.

                  We have nothing to fear as our life comes to an end.

                  Keep writing

                  • Louis Gibbs

                    Nothing to fear, indeed. I look forward to graduating from this term of embodiment and returning to our natural 'free state' for some R&R. I'm glad for your cousin who was able to make the transition in peace.
                    Thank you for the thoughtful, supportive reply, FineB!

                    As I myself once penned "This Is Not Good-bye", we shall meet again on the other side. Great write my friend.

                    • Louis Gibbs

                      Should be a great reunion on that side! I look forward to it. See you there, AP. Thanks for your comment, and for making it a fav!

                    • FredPeyer

                      Now that I know you too will be there on the other side, I am REALLY looking forward to it.
                      Louis, have to make this a fav!

                      • Louis Gibbs

                        Your very special comment echoes my own feeling, Fred. Thank you so very much for your continued support, and for making this one a fav!
