The Igniter

my heart, my engine
my thoughts,the igniter..

some day, when my engine dies out
my soul shall drift away, seaking to find new answers
in another dimensions, which I haven`t yet seen

my everything, my awakening
igniting the spark, which will lead me into a holy land

imagine time..standing still
no moments from now til then
frozen in a forever now

explicit, raw emotions
time tickin, life`s like a ferris wheel
lowest point, slowly moving to the highest point
from up there, I can see the whole world

my heart, my engine
my thoughts, the igniter..

    A very profound write, Arild! The 'spark', the 'engine', "a ferris wheel"...embark at the bottom and move upward. Your thought and emotion (heart), so deeply sensitive and in tune! Enjoyed this write!! Best wishes, Mikki

    If you ignite, anything can happen dear friend; I think most of the time your pen is on fire and we get to feel the warmth! Love the "explicit raw emotions", makes me turn cartwheels! Luv, Lizzie

    Am glad you can see the whole world, and probably some stuff out of this world. Imagination is a wonderful tool.

    Hi Arild! I just super liked the thoughts you put in here, especially what you say about your heart being the engine and your thoughts the igniter-- wonderful poem and so cool how you started and ended with the same lines-- rounded it wonderfully :)

    Arlid, your poem is amazing, the dimensions, your reaching for, are the one's that run that engine that ignites everything in you. Everything perfect will be found in your holy land. I'm feeling it all, --------- I'm freezing the thought of you, I enjoy the way you ignite everything that lingers inside of you. You are what sings and spins, when no one is looking.. your thoughts your moments,, how wild to make whatever you want on the awakening side. always..PD

    Very cool poem, Arild. Just the two words: the igniter, makes for a powerful punch. Hmmmm, this free verse read like song lyrics to me. 7-Up!

    thank you,canadian brother:-) yeah,I had my doubts about which form I should place it under

    I really enjoyed reading this one. And the metaphor you used of engine and igniter. Also the ferris wheel image. Highs and lows of life. Oh to be on the top and understanding it all! this is wonderful.
