You Know     December 1, 2009    

 

feeling

you know

vague thought skittering along ribs

what portend does it bring

omen misery dark or laughter light

 

touch

you know

warm caress against mute skin

is something reaching out

or is it reaching in

 

whisper

you know

sighing wind easing past mind’s gate

words ever so very faint

vanishing sound merges with heartbeat

 

dream

you know

vision catching prismatic window pane

sight achingly ephemeral

asking: stop, listen, see

 

ringing

you know

life’s cacophony

discordance trying to push heart aside

vainly tempts hard journeyed soul

 

meditation

you know

gathers pieces scattered in darkness

allowing momentary grace

golden light illuminates archangel

 

union

you know

waking dream whispers within mending touch

silencing noisy world

Raphael gilds sky with healing lace

 

angels

you know

when least expected

flicker within the ordinary

sharing our breath with us
