Reflections

Image by James Rainsford

Days unfold with ease now
…teasing
as their warmth touches
Inviting more participation
of life’s music cords within.

Winter played the
saddest notes
each one
crystal clear but
(for once)
I didn’t come undone in
the frozen wastelands
and
clouded vision cleared
as each tune changed
its reason.

Reflections arriving with spring.

A thousand butterflies
would take to flight
once upon a dream
but
I’m no longer in that
dizziness of free-fall.

No old hopes to dash
No dreams to rent asunder
upon such awakening.

I unwind in sunlit rays
of smoky light
and,
(when day is done)
will continue ‘neath a
backdrop of night’s
celestial sea.

    Beautiful poem!

    Well, if that isn’t beautiful I don’t know what is! It’s my favorite part of a poem that I took straight to heart. So very lovely.

    It feels great… and the subtle expressions in above lines makes it more great 🙂

    Yes, we unwind at our leisure in hazy light or darkness. We reserve moments when the lights are bright to go about our business with better chances of success! Great thinking Daydreamer!

  8. You sure walk through the mist and come out like a breeze putting everything at ease. Yes thankfully the winter, so far could still mess with us, was grand here in our land.

  9. This has a really nice meditative quality to the way you unfold the person’s inner monologue. Very strong lines. This one, among many, stood out for me:

    clouded vision cleared
    as each tune changed
    its reason.

    Tunes changing reason has a very cool conceptual quality to it. I guess tunes change their reason, but its like thought and music are one. Cool idea.

  10. Seriously…we need a book from you! An entire collection for us to fall into. each and every visit is such a gift…and I am so sorry they have been so few and far between. This was just a wonderful write, Bren…as they ALWAYS are!

  11. Real pearls in there:
    “as each tune changed
    its reason.”
    “I’m no longer in that
    dizziness of free-fall.”
    I felt soothed after I read it. Thank you.

  12. These are really nice descriptions:

    “Days unfold with ease now
    …teasing”

    “A thousand butterflies
    would take to flight
    once upon a dream
    but
    I’m no longer in that
    dizziness of free-fall”

    “No dreams to rent asunder
    upon such awakening”

  13. Beautiful poem. I felt each word, like I was going through an emotional journey with you through seasons. Each element so well relates to the way we feel. Great job.

  14. This beginning is quite simply ‘perfect’

    “Days unfold with ease now
    …teasing
    as their warmth touches
    Inviting more participation
    of life’s music cords within.”

    It captures so well the essence of this image, that I feel your were looking through my lens. Brilliant. James.

  15. Old hopes, new hopes … We won’t give up on them … They are like unborn children, Bren … Ready to live. Love, cat.

  16. dang lovely imagery in that last stanza bren…and the 100 butterflies…glad you did not come undone in winter…it can def be tough at times…but provides great contrast to the beauty of spring…

  17. This is beautiful. This was a better winter than any in my memory. And indeed spring IS here. I love the last stanza and the mention of the ‘celestial sea.’ Yes!
