“The Poet’s Song” The Sunday Whirl #172

Only love and pain
have dust remaining on this mystery.
It’s a young woman’s song;
prepubescent and concentrated.

The poet delivers
an intimate universal feeling,
I understand it
when I look at the
greenery of the mountainside,
and happiness wraps itself around me.

There’s bliss within the sounding sun;
flamboyant, flared, falling,
pointing toward an appetite for living.
Though at times jumbled
and tired, I continue with love
for being alive,
at last I can fly.

  1. This is a beautiful piece! And I know you can fly, and there is the truth, we are grateful to be alive….life is bliss….the love and the pain.

  2. Yes you can…and you can sing and curl poems in the stars quite beautifully…a peaceful Sunday to you xo

  10. at last I can fly!

    Love conquers all. Many can attest to that.It is a matter of deciding what to do after which emotions will take over. It’ll work its way and all the good things fall into place. Great thoughts Pamelita!

    that you still have the desire…the love…of being alive….
