With whom did I dance unawares....

As raw as the stain of a ripe midnight mulberry
a sometimes sleepless conference with my darker shadow
Were you ever there, somewhere in this dimension magical
or with whom did I dance unawares
Was it you who shared my blanket of silver-lined dreams
or was I futilely searching for what felt like the missing part of me
and I grew like an oak tree
and when I was broken was it you that wept with me
and now that I am strong will you smile and leave
disappear into oblivion
subtly behind the scenes watching me tread the road alone…..?
Ah, but truth be known, perhaps that is where you were always meant to be….and I, with this feeling of finally having found that elusive part that was ever, never missing….

    Jane, it is so magical when I am here as you post… I miss so much being gone lots.. this just feels like I do sometimes when I can’t seem to focus on what I want..

  • Thank you, as always Lina. That’s one way of looking at it and sometimes we just lose focus altogether and then find ourselves in the company of more important inspiration. Much love to you dearest. xx

  • Thank you Betty. You would know this heart a little better than most I would say. xx

    You found me at a very vulnerable time for me.. yet you are drawing me in,your artistic words create the visions I usually seek for a photo box moment to create a painted picture.. as scrambled as this may sound,, and I am sorry if so.. your words have softly spoken to me in my time of whoa………………thank you, from my heart, peace, love, light and inspiration, linmarie

  • I did? and thank you from my heart dearest linmarie. xx
