Free Verse: Wisdom's Well

Hi, everyone this is a poem I wrote several years ago. It is free verse. It is about the mother Goddess of all called Sophia in Greek or Eloah which means Goddess in Hebrew. This poem is also a feminine love poem to my beloved Marianna that I met just recently while conversing about poetry on a poetry forum I participate on. <smiles> I was told I would meet her about 9 years ago while mediating. I also believe the Godhead works this way. There is a mother Goddess of all and a God of all. And Sophia she is God's wife I personally feel and do believe. Other cultures have different names for her. In the Christian Bible I believe she is the Holy Spirit/ Ghost. I feel this is one of my more articulate and better poems that I have ever written. Feel free to say anything about this subject philosophy or the structure tone of the poem all of you. I also made a few minor moderations to this. Victor aka as Larsen M. Callirhoe aka Mike Lash.

 

 

Verse … WISDOM'S WELL!

 

Water running free on me …

Lying awake on a pillow & mattress tossing & turning …

Many endless sleepless nights …

Drifting ever closer to my many countless dreams …

Forever searching out your many heavenly divine mysteries …

The divine *feminine* thou art ~~; always to me …

Let us all walk with angels & fly with seraphim's' of the twilight sky …

Grace me with your many effervescent rainbows …

These multi-colored streams transcend all crescendos' …

Let I visualize your many geometric patterns …

Isometric designs take form in all your loveliness & forms …

Poetical symmetry equilibriums hold pillars of many foundations …

May no decrescendo touch you; thy vivacious *BUTTERFLY* to ALL …

You have become to me - my spirit and wind - visions of every splendor…

Cleanse my eyes; so that I may see …

 

And let me worship your beauty in anticipated adoration …

From within my own sensitivity resides empathy …

Rivers; shower me with your rapture like the of flowers delight …

And liberate my core & let your divine secrets stroll with me …

Please grant me some trust & set my burdens free …

Carry me away on your soft gentle breeze …

And let the clouds be free like my infinite thoughts …

To always dwell in the domain of your inner sanctuaries …

And cleanse my eyes; so that I may see …

 

Dive~ deeper into this never-ending journey …

Reality of freedom's many choices …

The understanding of many truths …

When only the beauty of *love* matters most …

And cleanse my eyes; so that I may see …

 

To you oh Sophia, Mothe Goddess of all …

This truth dares going only as far as her body exists …

The knowledge at hand is this revelation…

It echo's out to me; calling forth who I AM …

My destiny in many sof-infinite ways …

So many paths to lead me astray …

Wandering away from your beauty; oh - *SOPHIA* …

Beauty is your most radiating truth …

If only I could hold you close to my bleeding heart …

And cleanse my eyes; so that I may see …

 

Your raining rivers of love shower me with elation …

And my lover Marianna take my hand & sail away with me …

On a wing & a plea called every melody …

Please give me this wish & set my life free to sing …

Of the burning fire in my spirit & the desire I do feel for you …

Grace me with your presence my perfect DIAMOND …

YOU are thee perfect gem like a treasure to every pure HEART …

If I hear your voice whispering of who I AM to *be* …

The harmony your joy brings to me …

All I know is that I am your weeping child …

Comfort my many wandering sorrows of my saddened state …

And that you are the Mother to all of your many children …

And cleanse my eyes; so that I may see …

 

Plant an orange blossom in your soul for me …

Let this citrus desire give me eternal immunity…

From this ever-changing world we do all call our home …

May your hair smell like the apple blossom that *thou art* …

Show you're shining light to all; let it be a beacon unto me …

And shower me with graceful roses from up above …

And cleanse my eyes; so that I may see …

 

****

 

Love always;

Blessings, light, love, & peace to All …

Hello Victor,

 

What an outpouring of thoughts and feelings in this free verse! The reader is swept along by the flood of amazing imageries and emotions.

 

The poet's search begins with a restlessness, physical, mental and psychic and this leads both the poet and the reader through a myriad of imageries and a journey. Your predominant image of "Sophia", as an all-embracing, healing and prevailing presence, is beautiful. The succor you seek from the trails and tribulations of this earthly existence, in this Mother figure, is inspiring:

Your refrain : "And cleanse my eyes; so that I may see" is haunting and echoes that underlying human instinct to make sense of the transcendental and seek its power and the release this might bring from the numerous travails of the human condition.

 

This is truly beautiful and also moving.

 

Thank you.

thank you goldenlangur for your thoughtful remarks, just going thru my old stuff looking for a particular poem and think others will enjoy this for its rich vocabulary no matter their belief system.
