Soul Search

Today I seek the sun, it's gentle painless play- words of winter warmth spur me on my way, away from death wish, daily things gone wrong. Today I seek the sky - empyreal blue bowl that stretches thoughts so high above an endless flow of clouds caught carrying this season's rain and snow. Today I seek the earth- created solid, oh so sure! each grain linked to birth, to death, to my clay feet ferrying everywhere life's sublime design. Today, I seek the sight of eagles and their wings- let insight be given free flight, not as instinct, but free will, And still find a resting place in conscience, human limits. Today, I seek wild ways of nature, just out of grasp. Human natured though I am, God's finger binds mind- heart in clasps- flesh and blood married to spirit's inclination. Today I seek creation - space, earth, created ploys designed to bring me back on course - marvellous designer toys - The Almighty's mind in miniature creates in me a purpose. Today I see my self earthbound, then soaring - albatross escaping safe from earth's dust bowl arena, from humanity's wild roaring freed, to search for peaceful dreams. Today, I seek tomorrow - a hope beheld, faith's make-me-believe as bone producing marrow makes vital force live by my blood, so heart-man, blindly pumping, can try transcend the dust of death. Today I sought my self, living soul, dying past - yesterdays given up form mortal man's newfound mast supporting eager search for truth. And then I'll live - at last! 23/12/2019. Repost. Notes: Soul: a human being - "SOS=Save Our Souls." "Old King Cole was a merry old soul..." "Strong souls live like fire-hearted Sun's, to spend their strength in further striving action." - George Eliot. "Soul" ="Self" = The person considered as a unique indvisual. "The inner chambers of the soul are like the photographer's darkroom.Like a laboratory. One cannot stay there all the time or it becomes the solitary cell of the neurotic. Anais Nin. "Soul Search" = anxious self analysis regarding one's beliefs, motives, moral qualities, etc.

Thank you for your kind comments and visit to my poetry, Craig, I came to post, and realised I hadn't replied. Kind comments much needed in a time where we are surrounded by so much insecurity in this pandemic world. I hope to post more often, my "nerves" get the better of me now and then. : D ( I "ghost" myself at times, like a "spooked" horse... : D) Warm regards, Aqua M.

Hi Eric, I am pleased that this poem held some meaning for you...No one can take this Soul Searching Journey for us - we are all so individualistic, and can only come to that time and place ourselves, where we are happy to be our own unique selves. This might take a lifetime, but that is natural, because practical wisdom generally comes with age. As an older person, I still have a way to go...Warm regards ~~Aqua M~~ Thank you!

Thank you SO, your input always means so much to me, and your comment is very encouraging, as I wasn't too sure whether I should repost it or not. I have a few "new" poems I'm working on, and will be posting soon, but this poem is close to my heart because it reminds me to stay passionate and positive about life, and to rise above the difficult times by "seizing the day." Not always easy, yet each day has something to be grateful for. Again, I will always appreciate your kindness, and taking time to visit and comment...Warm regards, and (((Hugs)))~~AquaM~~
