Yet I Remain

                 Yet I Remain

There are no tethers, yet I remain,
no locked doors or barred windows,
no walls, no chained gates, no guards,
for I am free, of and from, any bondage
to this world - save love.

These bonds do not constrain my love
they light the way that I may see its beauty,
adjust the lighting lest a shadow pass
across my heart.  Such bonds are not
a limitation, they are the gleam of sunlight
reflecting on the surface of a waiting moon.

This invisible web, more delicate than the
finest spider spun silk, resonates the hum
of distant breezes, holds to daybreaks
dew drop dreams, enfolds in perfect
symmetry one half of whole.

This power to be unattached yet still
connected, a pebble reaching out
in rippling touch, a thought, its only
true vibration, caressing with its freedom
those still longing to be free.

For PD’s -  ‘a poem you have not entered in a past contest #11’
