Universal Harmony

I could weep a million tears
for you
Or, shed just one
each, would mean the same.

A string of new beginnings
beckons
the call to love answered
with a peel of bells.

Life is in its quickening

there is a gateway open
and journey’s end has
not one, but a multitude
of paths each (again) unique
if willing to change a single step
here or there along the way.

My path is sometimes lost
a mental maze in clouds
of too much thought
which fog the lens
keep the view hidden
yet,
its point still resonates
somewhere deep within.

Sometimes I revel in the
solitude
yearn for it’s calm and
need that isolation just
to live, to be, to breathe

Others,
the lonely island weeps
to touch the sun or moon
and sing in tune with its
universal harmonies.

  1. I really like the flow of this poem and it is so true that we have so many paths from which to choose and each one does effect a change in our lives.

    Thank you so much for sharing this with this weeks Theme Thursday. I hope you like next weeks new theme.

    God bless.

  2. Ah, Daydreamer, I too sometimes revel in my solitude. I also identify with your thoughts of your path being sometimes lost in too much thought. So often I wish I could just turn off my mind.

    Thank you, Daydreamer, for continuing to be a source of support. I appreciate this more than you can imagine. I know you have been there. And I do not take your words lightly.

  3. This seems to be a piece to which nearly all of us could relate. I am particularly drawn to:

    My path is sometimes lost
    a mental maze in clouds
    of too much thought
    which fog the lens

    These lines, and then the clearing of the fog for greater understanding, describe a current thread in my life. Nicely written!

  4. Nice pic! πŸ™‚ I like this one too, solitude can be fun but as usual “l’exces en tout nui” πŸ™‚

  5. Seeking solitude … one of my specialties … good for lowering blood pressure, too πŸ™‚ Love, cat.

  6. There seems to be many possibilities yet one always seem to think there is one that one is meant to be on. Alone and together, universal feelings, love the oneness feel when reading this.

  7. Wonderful, my fav lines are:
    “Sometimes I revel in the
    solitude
    yearn for it’s calm and
    need that isolation just
    to live, to be, to breathe”

    That is me, have to have it…to be me!
    I loved your take on the prompt~

  8. So you send me to a deserted island now? What did I ever do to you? I don’t want no three hour tour…haha…wonderful verse.

  9. nice relatable on multiple levels…the last stanza is the one that speaks to me actually…i love to hear the song…and the island makes me think of the beach…and that is where i find my rhythm

  10. Lovely lines specially these:

    yearn for it’s calm and
    need that isolation just
    to live, to be, to breathe

  11. “if willing to change a single step
    here or there along the way”

    Now that’s the key! I tend to vascilate as in the last two stanza. Great write!
