Soul Wings

If writing words are the Bare Bones of me,

then Poeme` is the ephemeral Soul of me

Bones are formed from dust

flesh out the form of my shadow

Poeme` the intangible core of my being

the breath of life to my shadow

Without the breath divinely inspired

I am but a lost thing having no heart, no core, no soul

My soul is not anchored in my flesh

but soars within the cage of my earthly body

This too is the beautiful tragedy of  Poeme`

Flesh pulls the oxygen from the air

my core pulls divine inspiration into streaming flight

~ the uncaged bird is set free ~

I can no more cage this poeme`

to trap my soul in earthly realms hollows my flesh

Poeme` is life fleshed into my Bones

A place where the intangible is material

A window through which the tears of God

break open the unseen cracks in a heart

A Love divine and Light surreal

is my heart free, my soul uncaged

the Bird of Poeme` soaring into the heavenly realms.

    Beautiful piece, I loved it 🙂

    “Bones are formed from dust

    flesh out the form of my shadow

    Poeme` the intangible core of my being

    the breath of life to my shadow”

    Those lines were my favorite

    wow.. this was very soulful…
    “Without the breath divinely inspired
    I am but a lost thing having no heart, no core, no soul” — explains a lot!!!! Can totally relate to it myself… phheewww
