Shelter

These walls are not just walls
Nor are these chairs
Nor is this artistic breath of air that fills 
Thy every artistic corner
Thou are not just an ordinary space
Sprayed with golden sunlight
Then curtained ‘Neath a star-lit night
Coffee-scented...
Emotionally charged... 
Books... 
Designed with perfection itself
Lanz enchants
Melodies...
The breeze sways away with 
Consciousness in an eternal waltz
Words… words … words 
That slowly ebb like moon-shifting tides 
Green..orange...scarlet red
Colors that fuse like these feelings 
And paint themselves on these walls 
Everything is so energetically infused... 

Enunciate not...Feel not these restraints
Hear not these fallacies
The outer world is filled with boundaries
Yet here there are none
Forget all that lies beyond this point 
Of no space and no time
For here all you do is Float…Chant…Invoke…
For this body is but a layer of flesh and bone
These glasses are but illusioned spectacles
Look not through them...
See not these grandiose illusions....Float.
For you are here.

    This is a poem to make someone feel at peace and secure. It's very soothing, and hey, where have you been, Farah??

    interesting, transcendental piece. Words can transcend. Music definitely does. For the poet, words are music. Fine piece. Love, Dave
