already this

my logic in a tartan knapsack of my
scientific mind,
i searched until i found who
was who, looking for the
essence that is me
behind the pontifications of the
ego that would be mine

i traveled every well-known path
worn and frayed around the edges
until i was smooth as a
stone in the river of my being,
i trudged the meanings of what it means
to be until
i was immersed with every shade of green
in the constancy of an open heart
echoing pineapple winds of change

i thought love had died with God, the world
was so real with these divisions of humanity
that kill the soft-eyed child inside
and so i wandered within the silent room of awe
bestowed in resurrections and awakening
how on earth does Spring come forever
when i must die
in these passages through?

in these spinnings
my mind
ascending in awareness
but for the grace,
but for this magnificent obsession
unfolding this moment now here
all is déjà vu

all is my poem of how i came to be.

    I enjoyed reading your poetry this morning Anna. I see the weekend was good to you and helped you find the inspiration to write and share your poetry with us. Just continue to write from your heart as only you know what is there. Love, Carol

    Glad you found it *fascinating* I find my life *interesting*. ;-) No metaphors in the last lines. It is what it is. What would you have written?

    I found this fascinating to follow, seeing your journey rediscovering grace. You had some interesting metaphors and it would be nice to see you continue that to your last verse.
