I close my eyes
to the fear
of hope, of light
they vibrate adoration
and I’m not a body
with aching joints
but a dusty soul

I love the promise of renewal here Tricia, especially as I’ve been suffering a few aching joints recently, both physical and spiritual…
Same here! Hoping this poem would inspire today, as some of my previous ones have been a little dark! 💖
Not sure I’ve been here before, but this is beautiful Tricia, especially, having started rather matter of factly as you gather up rather magically towards the close
Pleased it touched you, Scott! 💝
I love this… a fresh start, and reminding me how I started out writing poetry on twitter prompts all those years ago (when it was still 140 characters)…
Thanks, Bjorn! Yes, it makes you polish and edit your words, for sure! 💕
Fascinating Tricia, and great pic!
Thanks, Rob! 💝
I’m loving the release – or at least the promise of relief – contained in this fine work. Well done TS.
Appreciate your thoughts, Ron! ❤
“chromatic ribbons / of hope” — my favorite part of this.
Thanks, Ken! 💕
It’s a while since I wrote a Twitter poem, Helen; I identify with this one, especially the aching joints. I’d love to be a ‘dusty soul’ hovering, retracting and reaching again.
Yes, we all are reaching for something in these bodies, our purpose keeps us around! I take it as a compliment to be mistaken for Helen, 😆 Old dusty souls unite!
Oops! I apologise Tricia. It was getting late and I was feeling like a very dusty soul! 🙂
Always a great idea to close the eyes to the fear~it’s still there~why can’t we close the nerves to the pain as easily?
Yes, sometimes pain we must walk through. Both physical and spiritual. Thanks for reading! 💕
I love this – dusty soul, reaching and hoping. Beautifully penned.
Appreciate your kind words! 🥰
I like the concise way that you emulated hope in this piece. Vivid and strong.
Happy to finally share a hopeful piece
Happy to share a hopeful piece this time and appreciate you hosting! 💓
Hope… from beginning to end. Love this.
Thanks so much, Pat! 💕
“Chromatic ribbons” …. like half steps on the way to feeling good. (chromatic scales are a tricky maneuver on my flute ~ in my advancing age.)
Yes! Appreciate your comment, Helen! 💕
Receptivity can work miracles. I see this as communing with God. Beautiful!
It is about turning to God and recharging. Thanks, Lisa! 💝
You’re most welcome ❤
Lovely. I like the energy of these lines,
of hope, of light
they vibrate adoration”
It sounds like being touched by love.
Yes! It’s always around us if we can just learn to embrace it! ❤️
So true. I heard the offering of love available to us in the words of your poem.
I’m glad! 💕🙏💕
Thanks, Lucy! ❤️
