Meaningful Short Sentences

Abstract Tree and Shrub. I created this from a night photo I took around Christmas one year by swinging a camera I had at the time then playing with the image in Photoshop software. It has nothing to do with the poem except the creation of meaning. 🤗😂💕✨

See You Later

See You Later

Though it’s been fun

being here- reading

and writing, it seems

my eyes do need

a rest from screens.

I’ve had a good run

these past few days.

You’ve enriched me

in many ways

and I hope too

the same for you.

Still, my eyes need

a rest from screens.

I’ll rejoin you

in a short while.

Sending a hug

and a happy smile.

My Heart Remembers (revised)

My Heart Remembers

some think rebirth a fiction

but my heart remembers you…

i look into your eyes and see

deep buried love that used to be

the wonder the joy in other lives

our souls both true love graced…

my heart remembers you…

another time another place

a different name a different face

despite it all i recognize

your being in another guise

your soul in its disguise…

my heart remembers you…

free to travel time and space

by our spirits’ loving grace

here and now we meet again

forgetting what once was

till only love itself remains…

my heart remembers you…

we are a mystery to solve

ever changing to evolve

finding love held deep inside

entangled love that never dies…

here and now we meet again

strangers not strangers once again

now once more you say to me

you seem so familiar

have we met before…

yes my heart remembers you…

Play It Again…

Play It Again…

a song a film a game

plays over again again again…

a feeling of deja vu…

here we’ve done it again

with ifs and wishes and dreams…

it all seems so familiar

your clothes your face your hair

have we done it all before

it feels like we’ve been

playing out another version

of a story lived before…

you see me and i see you

a dance of time in repetition

same rhythms same pace

moving through space and place

yet open to free will choice

moving in differently directions

moving together again…

have we done this before

how do i seem to know you

i’ve always loved your…

but you’ve never seen it before…

many open potential-portals

many entrance and exit points…

someone i’d like you to meet…

do you move forward or retreat

oh- perhaps another time…

or- will i see you again

it all depends… how do you feel

please don’t take that…

i have a feeling you say…

or- why don’t we take a chance

i have a good feeling i say…

a song a film a game a life

shall we play it over again

shall we add a few revisions

to words to dids and didn’ts

perhaps cut and redo it again…

You Came Here To Dance

Swirling Dancers. This is my digital art from a photo I took. I’ve used software to create similar flower statements of Dance as a fun hobby.
My poem written, printed and photographed this morning. I’ll key it out as well.

You Came Here To Dance

Life says, You came here to Dance,

to Dance in groups or with a partner

or changing partners or even

to Dance alone…

Life is a Harmony of rhythms

all happening simultaneously

moving fast and moving slow

here and everywhere in all directions…

We move in and out of the physical flow-

Seen and Unseen, we come and go…

Sometimes we lose our Balance

learning to Master our own Steps-

Life’s Beloved Children,

we’re learning, remembering our Steps…

Life sees and gently guides us

to think for ourselves, to choose

how we feel, E-motions responding

to collective rhythms or creating

rhythms all on our own…

Our Souls came here to Dance…

Before we’re born, we choose

‘Where’ in the Cosmos we wish to Dance-

God’s Free Will Gift to our Souls.

Love and Growth move us ever

to Places, to Cultures, to People

Dancing in Harmonizing Rhythms-

Souls’ Agendas moving Together…

We Dance in Harmony Together

even ‘off Balance’ sometimes-

choosing, ‘rechoosing’ our Steps…

Some move through Life Solitary

Dancing Individuality through Life.

Some move Together As One

in Disciplined Harmony,

Rhythmically Rippling and Merging

their Individuality…

Over the Movements of many Dances,

many Lifetimes, many Timelines,

Souls experience many Steps

in the Wonder and Beauty and Glories

of Unity in Diversity, Diversity in Unity,

the Divine Energy of Life’s Dance…

We all came here to Dance…
