Hover, above me
I see myself below, still
Arms reached out, floating
Dark hooded sentries, shuffle
Entering, safe, distant light

    This is very good Mitch. I tend to write everything in rhyme because it sound good to me. I do try a few other but always seem to like rhyme. This sounds like the near death experience they talk about. God Bless Phyl

    I have often wondered about how it happens.

    Gosh, Mitch, did you live this, or is this just pure imagination? The dark hooded sentries was something new added into the mix however! Very interesting little poem. Thanks so much for responding to my blog. Can't wait to see if 1 is one of your numbers! LUv,Andrea

    Not morbid at all, Mitch. Very real. I'm sorry you had to go through that. You're such a kind person. I've had out-of-body experiences twice. Like I said, very real. Love, Carolyn
