Poet's Notes About The Poem
(Show Details...)

<center>

Ravaged, but, not torn

immersed in subtle light 

I ride the torrent reality

of the world's deceitful guise 


In moments lost and hopeless 

lamenting flesh and life

a small voice still comes calling

to rise above the strife 


Retreating within my silence

I light a flame of truth 

unfurling the sacred paper

enrapturing psalms of birth 


Within a calm surrender

where clarity fills my sight  

He delicately lays a promise

on my spirit with love divine

    Rick, hi,, it's been a while since i've seen you here on the soup..lol..maybe I am blind. I love the outcomming spirit in your poem.. The one line i enjoyed the most is " I light a flame of truth" that has a very uplifting and calm kick to it. lovely and divine is all i can say too... take care,..pd
