Mystery (An Original Poem)

in poetry •  2 months ago

Shared compromises,
a rare respite from
the extremes of
this age of divisiveness.

Cloistering, to explore
the universes within,
preserving your
uniqueness from the
intrusion of electronica.

Search, to find
your peace and lust
before you rust
and relevance begins
to fall away.

Dare to paint
a nuanced beauty
across every facet
of your soul,
until each atom
of your being
sings like a choir.

Forgive trespasses,
laying your conscience down
under a dark blanket of stars,
and sleeping soundly on sheets
that smell of sun
and the sea.

Greet each person
with the smiling eyes
of silent fellowship,
acknowledging the
hidden struggles
they must endure.

This life
is one painful pleasure,
that we all
have in common,
the most complex
enigma of all,
a great mystery that
I pray we never
fully understand.

Your writing style is absolutely different. Wow. I need to come for classes hahaha. It has been a while, sir. How have you been and your family?

·

Thanks! I try to change up my style from time to time when writing poetry. It depends on how the words come to me. All has been well here, we're just trying to get through a harsher than average winter here in Minnesota. I hope you and your family are well!

Yes, I heard about the harsh weather condition. How are you coping, sir? How is your adorable dog too?

Glad you are doing great sir. Yes, we are doing really well. The weather has been tricky here; sometimes cold, sometimes warm, and sometimes really hot hahaha.

I really admire the way you write and change them at will. When can I start my classes? Hahaha

Escaping for a week to the Caribbean certainly helped but we have around 15 inches of snow on the ground at the moment with more to come. I have to say, it's great for writing though. It forces you to stay inside and focused.

The thermometer has been making some wild jumps in the US lately too. I suspect climate change is playing a huge role in that.

I'm going to be launching a new venture soon that might just include writing instruction...more on that is soon to come. : ) Thanks for your support!

I can only imagine what is happening right now in the U.S. I saw pictures and was really surprised. Hoping it gets better.

Yes, staying indoor helps when it comes to writing. It allows me to be calm and think.

I really look forward to the writing instructions. Thanks for your constant support sir.

Amazing spiritual poem. Third stanza is very true .

Enjoyed your poem and being able see how you feel.

Excellent I am using more intuitive writing lately. Maybe we can tap into more of our inner nature. It is lovely how you were able to do that here.

Forgive trespasses, laying your conscience down under a dark blanket of stars, and sleeping soundly on sheets that smell of sun and the sea.
This line is the essence of life. Unless someone forgive he or she can not rise above the noise of life and the sound sleep deep down with the consicience can not be achieved. It is absolutely motivational and inspirational. Thank you for this poem.

Really excellent post... I love it...my dear friend

Trust me, I have to read this twice to let it sink in, am more connected to the picture than the poem.

It's mystical in nature.

All stanzas are very good. This poem is giving positivity to us .

Excellent poem! Very accurate words 👍

Interesting and a creative poem that is delivering a positive messages

Lovely poem, all stanzas are written in beautiful wordings .

Solving the mystery in your own charismatic style through poems love it : )

@ericvancewalton, Life is Mixed Concept, what we think hold the Happiness but at the same time Pain. But that's the beauty of life because if everything would be pleasurable aspect then definitely we would never know what is happiness and apartness. In life everything exists with particular reason and that reason gives meaning to every aspect of life. Stay blessed.
