Travelling

New Horizon by Carla Bonomo

> <

You are the passport,
The vessel,
The destination.
                    –
You are the forgotten map;
Veins of budding reality
Trace the newest page;
You are the passport.
                     –
You are the right pilot;
Draw loud horizons closer
Through fast, pressing air;
You are the vessel.
                      –
You are the secret place;
Heart’s newly discovered home,
Dwelling-place of me;
You are the destination.
                     –
You are the passport, the vessel.
                     –
The destination.

Truth

Difference 2– • –

 

I found my way;

More bearable than your way.

My way has no stopwatch,

No expectant blank page,

No closed door.

 

My way has spaces,

Open windows,

Gaps, loops, connections, cracks.

 

I found my way;

My way has truth,

My way has me.

 

I found my way;

More bearable than your way.

My way has no checking,

No assumptions,

No answers.

 

My way has openings,

Uncertainty,

Opportunity, questions, choice.

 

I found my way;

My way has truth,

My way has me.

Refraction

Dark Beauty by Miumi-U– • –

Soul splitting rush

Scatters truth like leaves;

Through knowing forest

Crashes boundless creation.

 

Insatiable rays drive

Light forward, through;

Eye beyond fathom,

Infinitely seeking.

 

Flames of encyclopaedic beauty

Fuse beginning to end

In limitless genesis

Of journey’s thrall.

 

Kaleidoscope wings

Beat in eternal space,

Thrumming awe to distant stars,

Defying essence of beyond.

 

Your worlds beget worlds,

Your light sparks light.

 

Refract my life into wonder.

Attenuate

Posted in Poetry with tags on February 18, 2015 by becciseaborne

Beneath our tread
At depth embed
My own roots’ roots
Spring eternal shoots

Where souls are wed
Trace single thread
Of heartsreach place
Seen in true face

Yet hungry fate
Will attenuate
Lifelong bloom
Through distance’ gloom

Way now unclear
Bring your essence near
Journey as we began
Feel my hand

Held

Hold my heart for 5min that I might not feel so much
 – • –

You kiss my head;
It makes me feel like
I am utterly
Contained, yet free;
Held, yet offered;
Wrapped close,
Yet given to the world;
So presently alive and full,
Like heat reflected back;
Moving stillness of
Love’s gravity;
You kiss my head
