Raining glistens dance in the wind of Time

Rays of pain and pleasure gleam in the eyes

Rising as tears or sparks of smile

Have the moments felt in the journey of life.


Folding the moments and saving their essence

Into amber of pain and joyful crystals

Colors your Soul in rainbow shades.


The raindrops, bland and robbed of the hue,

That tugs at your heart as souvenirs

Are but corporeal knots on your ethereal wings

That chains your mind to the vacuum of past.

        You weave words together magically. Might take a few more reads to comprehend. That is the beauty of poetry.

              mastering the mind is potentially one of the most significant struggles, ego death and ascendance through the levels of consciousness is what I truly yearn, happy your back, peace and love!✌❤

              • Diamond

                Tricky part of it is that even yearning comes in the way being "that" which one yearns for. I heart fully appreciate your read and the comment. Much Love.

                          Well this is in line with what we were just talking about it. Carrying that which does not belong to us, like burdens of the past. This piece shimmers in vivid wisdom. Much enjoyed.

                          • Diamond

                            As such, nothing, my dear.... nothing really matters. Neither past nor future... And present IS. Love your reading. Thank you!
