Breathe

Breathe

I call to you my beloved
Your unleashed whispers arrive 
Riding the tendrils of an approaching fog
A dance of mist unfurling its fingertips of desire
Coming ever closer to my pulsating heart
I long for you, for all you have ever been
To taste your breath, your desire, your heartache and your sorrow
Would be my everlasting gift
You come to me in many forms... hovering close by
Beckoning me upward to that place between Heaven and Earth
White hawk.....Your feathered wings outstretched
I lay upon your back merging with you
Entering your being 
Becoming you
I feel our wings beating as we enter the sky together
Gliding across powdery clouds
A stillness... the air brushing our cheeks
Our bodies rising and falling
Dipping, curving, and diving 
Before climbing again
Joy
A quiet ascendance soaring into the realm
Of Spirit and Soul
Entering magical moments cloaked in ancient memories
Our guardians are hummingbirds and owls 
Adorned in snowy white guiding us towards the velvet envelope
Between space and time 
Undying light reaching out to the end of the horizon
A merging of ALL..... Promise and Desire
An everlasting illumination of hope
Swimming in the naked air 
Being kissed by bursts of sunlight 
Peering through the gauzy sky
My body basking in radiant warmth
A quiet solitude 
A tapestry of pale rose, magenta, and mauve 
Reflecting my inner soul
A call to BREATHE....Deeply...Fully
Feeling the eternal connection 
Becoming one with the pulse of life
Surrounding us all
A deep reverence towards all that is
Pink pearled strands of rain pierce the sea of mist and clouds
A kaleidoscope.... columns of light and shadow
Swimming through glorious turquoise universes
I close my eyes and feel your embrace
As we become one

Hello Susan, Words really don't do justice, for such a romance. A spirit took hold and blossomed in lofty air, in a poem called Breathe. Could there really be two gifted in you, painter and poet? Finding it hard not to let down my guard. Heart keeps asking for a cease and desist. Stuff like this, I thought I'd never miss. -Richard

Your emotions are almost tangible in this mesmerizing write, your captivating and talented poem is outstanding - when you fly high and are one with nature and creation, when you mention 'A call to BREATHE deeply, fully, you remind me of my yoga teacher, but then of course Yoga is being one with the universe in absolute tranquility and reverence of LIFE. Kudos dear Susan a breathtaking poem. Hugs and blessings. Thank you for a very kind comment on my short poem.

This really is exceptional writing, Susan, worthy of all the high praise below. The images and word choices are extraordinary and the emotions represented and deep. The elements of nature all support the sense of awe and wonder. I love the lines "Entering magical moments / Cloaked in ancient memories". This is a lovely dance that the reader doesn't want to end.
