Beyond

What mysteries lie in realms above

Where even angels fear to tread?

What misty glimpse of vapour dreams

By wandering errant thoughts are led?

Why do you seek to ride the flows

Of incandescent complex streams?

Absorbed by weightless ponderance

Beyond time's weakened mortal seams?

What is it that you seek amongst

Whispers floating on the breeze?

What promises mingle luring there

In tenuous vines on ethereal trees?

What calls from far off salt kissed flows

Of distant currents deep beyond?

A rhythm pulsing through your veins -

Of honeyed balm or Siren's song?

And should you heed these subtle pleas

Embrace that tantalising call

Will you reach to astral heights,

Or into greater darkness fall?

What a gorgeous poem, Zoe-- it is a true meal for the soul. I especially loved "Why do you seek to ride the flows

Of incandescent complex streams?

Absorbed by weightless ponderance

Beyond time's weakened mortal seams?" 00

now the way it works is that we wait for others to post and comment on one another's-- I've found that more commenting on others gets us more comments on our own. You deserve a readership! talk to you later...xxxj

Zoe, this poem is such a wonderful journey, love the questions and the images that are so sensual. Wonderfully done!

Hi Jen - thank you for such encouraging remarks - I love to hear what lines in particular resonate with people!

Hi MM - thank you too for specific comments that lift my heart.

I think as artists we often ask ourselves these questions.

your closing lines are the conundrum...life is a risk, do you dare take it and risk the fall, or wait and abandon all success...

That is so true, isn't it, Brian - it does boil down to that. I wrote an answer to this poem too - but I will share that in a while. Thanks for stopping by!
