Odyssey Of A Soul



What are you thinking of, germinal seed of dynamic animation - do you still understand all without explanation... the colors you dream in are the nuances of Infinite Love For the nonce, living soul - you will breathe in new lessons through our tender tethering as your seeking thirst is quenched through your skin; for life's osmosis seeps mortal knowledge not implanted at conception ~ with each culmination of every age the Enlightenment is cumulative a craving quest to reach and taste the purest fruits of highest divinity; our paths' toward perfection entwined plan in place - flesh and blood, free will intact - it will always be here trust - when and while you remember to forget to remember ~ recollections will renew when you flash across the skies in your meteoric rise donning your glorifying shine from stars of giving Light - In this lifetime, imperfect being, you will be nursed - briny tears will not overflow your tin cup with naught else to nourish you... those suffering stepping stones led to the sanctity of l a s t lessons learned… _____________________ Susan Ashley June 8, 2018

A quite profound work that deepens with each reading it seems--somehow I missed your comment from last July about my poem, The Tempering of the Soul-- but honestly, your poem is much greater in its ramifications.

not sure how i missed this one ... love the thoughts here...yes, a lifetime in a very imperfect world is much too short for this perfection we seek to know more of... and if it is infinite, surely there are more adventures in store, along different dimensions ...great read :)

Al, I believe artistic expression always leaves its imprint on the heart and on the soul of the viewer, the listener or the performer.. as it comes from the spirit so it touches others', as we are all connected, for better or worse, it's all part of the shared plan and we each leave our mark either as the initiator or the receiver. Thank you for your thought provoking comments and for the delight of your visit.. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

Pretty deep water here, Susan. It is my opinion the knowledge we acquire while on this earth means absolutely nothing. In the end it will be more about how we have lived and given glory to God, if one believes in God. It is only human vanity that drives us to reach for the unattainable. Extremely well written with all the taste and class one would expect from you:)

Hmmm, I agree with you my dear friend Daniel; that how we've lived and given glory to God is important at the end of our mortal existence. But if energy never dies and it transforms (as I happen to believe), then what is to become of our human experience, the knowledge that's become part of or has changed our DNA, when we die? Does our soul have a one shot deal to get it right or wrong? Does spirituality have but one mortal lifetime or is it immortal, eternal and everlasting and if so can a spirit or soul make up for past mistakes..? These are the questions that keep me awake at night.. haha! Your wonderful visits and insightful comments inspire me my friend. Warmest wishes always.. ~Susan

I have a son who's just read 'The Iliad' in a Western Lit course in College. 'The Odyssey's' next. Do you think that I might offer him your poem as an abstract of same, or perhaps as 'Susan's Notes?' ... Breadth and depth in full measure here, my dear... Yet another vintage 'Ashley Adventure.' Peace, Gershon

A poem within a poem, Susan, expressed in beautiful poetic language. Knowledge is pivotal in our life. It helps us to understand where we rightly belong and what paths to choose. Without it we journey through the dark, and in the process miss out on the fruit that awaits us. ~ Warm regards & Hugs, my friend! // paul

Spiritual beauty that sings and shines a truth about mankind and its fallen nature my friend. Once fallen as all are, the only course to rise is to step into the light and stop embracing the dark. Top class poetry my dear friend.. A fav....

Thank you my dear friend and lovely poetess. Your insightful comments, Besma, are divine and inspiring. They flow with refreshing ease from the deep well of your keen intellect and heart, filled with wisdom, spirituality and love. Indeed, our journey of Enlightenment is infinite and though it is mortal, I imagine that through the soul's human life the soul learns lessons that further advances the soul in its quest to achieve a higher spiritual plane and a higher state of sacred purity and perfection. You never fail to impart uplifting encouragement through your compelling and compassionate thoughts my dear friend.. Warmest wishes and love.. ~Susan
