Trembling gently in twilight,
rippling like a mirage,
what seems solid during the day
becomes otherworldly by nightfall
when things left unresolved
return to haunt the living;

Important then to honor passing
dreams, full-blown stories once told
to the very young, remembering that
which they could not yet apprehend;

Take heed to flights of fancy,
diamond secrets borne upon the back,
then spilling forth and landing
like rocks from the sack.

  1. Brilliant, for some reason I was taken in my mind to the Haida people of the Pacific Northwest Coast, my mind knows what it’s doing far better than I do most of the time. Fab poem Bela.

    1. I am glad you are reminded of any Indigenous people with regards to this offering. What I share with them, perhaps, is the connection to other worlds, visible to some but not all of us. It’s a Universal dance we’re doing, after all. Many thanks, sweet one. Big hugs, Bela (who appears almost invisible herself, these days, especially in the blogosphere – many changes afoot on this end, more anon, etc etc)

      1. Aww, love and light reflecting right back at you. Sorry I’ve been a little lax communicating on WordPress lately. Many changes afoot, and we shall see when it’s time to release that particular vision upon the world! Aloha for now. 😘

    1. Yes, Patrick, light here – due to being in the middle of the ocean – is unlike anywhere I’ve been. Then again, beauty abounds everywhere in all the places we’ve been privileged to live. Hope life is treating you well! Aloha.

  2. Amazing words and such beautiful images… May we all take heed of what is solid or not as we understand more deeply that in fact we are all energy moving back and forth…. gathering momentum in this realm right now..
    Much love dear Bela.. ❤

    1. And love to you, Sue. Absolutely! Energy assuming form according to the collective or our own image-inal glimpses into parallel worlds. Really, who could be bored with this life?! 😍
