The Orb

Recommended Posts

that orb above my head

swirling with light and colour

and giving off so much comfortable heat

has come from out of my mind

and i recognize it as

the manifestation of

my life's possibilities

 

in order to experience

all i need to do is plunge in my arm

and grasp an ethereal ribbon

from this karmic kaleidoscope of destiny

 

all i need to do is to tie

the colour of my future

around my wrist

and wear it mindfully and respectfully

until it loosens or falls

 

choices are wonderful things

full of magic and hue

leading us beyond our dreams and expectations

and they are limitless and lovely

 

just reach in and grab one...

To receive love, you have to give it...

This seems magical, ribbons inside an orb, douglas. This reminds of the short poem of Walt Whitman.

"Words are not things, and yet they are not non-things either." - Ann Lauterbach

Wonderful poem dear Douglas. Very colored. The poem is very positive, and somehow shows your nice mood?! I hope the time works at your side and that you are doing the best. Grab it Doug icon_wink.gif

 

I love this part:

 

all i need to do is to tie

the colour of my future

around my wrist

and wear it mindfully and respectfully

until it loosens or falls

 

Thank you for sharing.

Upbeat and bright -- I feel the warmth of the sun, and I picture the narrator with his arm toward it, giving the appearance of a torch held in the hand.

choices are wonderful things

full of magic and hue

leading us beyond our dreams and expectations

and they are limitless and lovely

Thank you for the reminder.
