Her Mystical Mantra



Drawn to her chants we run to her rhythmic is her mood in all her glory we walk with her fluid is her grace her steely blues are dreamy today sharing spheres of giving light ~ meditative is our spirit and haunting is her song. Susan Ashley August 16, 2018

Are you talking about mother nature or a hauntingly beautiful maiden? Nice short poem and as always your use of words gives great emphasis to the imagery in this poem...

I did not know what your poem was about until I read the comments; I liked that it was open for so much interpretation and pictured a Goddess. Fave.

Gorgeous poetry, Susan. A transcendental connection was made while reading this. I was listening to the beautiful song, "Dreamy Eyes" by Jean-Luc Ponty. Your line in this elegant poem: Her steely blues are dreamy today, sharing spheres of giving light. Sparkling poem. Love and smiles always. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fDl5GWFKFE

A refreshing poem that speaks volumes about the mind set of the author. A seductive invitation to join her philosophical approach to life and luxuriate within a world of diminished stress and concerns. A window into the soul of the author that is pleasing to the heart. Emile.
