Hazy Sanctuary

Hazy Sanctuary

Sheltered within the embrace of gentle mist,

climbing the thickest, soft mossy bough,

thinning amongst higher branches,

lost among fractured paisley pink blossoms,

I am born, a balmy parting from swollen bud,

among a cosmos of bursting buds.

 

I am born a specter, breathing ethereal dew,

fated to travel the world

perpetually displaced from it,

questing for my place in the cosmos,

infinitesimal in my insignificance, yet unique

in beauty as the double-helixed molecular barcode.

 

I am born, sheltered within nursery of thought

on reprieve from long winters of barren greys

where the mist bubbles, yielding space to sprinkle

light touches of pastel ideas that dare to open,

revealing flowering layers of imagination

efflorescence in portrait form.

 

I am born in whispers, neck craning to reach

higher in muted sky, patiently smiling

through the blended fragrance of renewal,

with birdsongs reminding me that it is OK

to raise my head and breathe.

  1. Barry, I’m so happy you’re on WordPress now.

    And this:

    “light touches of pastel ideas that dare to open,

    revealing flowering layers of imagination

    efflorescence in portrait form.

     

    I am born in whispers, neck craning to reach

    higher in muted sky, patiently smiling

    through the blended fragrance of renewal,”

    Reminds me of some of your past works. Strength and power are in the above lines. A bit of sadness too.

    efflorescence in portrait form.

    Beautiful! ❤️
