Her arrival impending

Lost

confusion

Lost
The flurry of activities
The juggling of tasks
The clamour of people
The distraction of noise.

Lost
The connection that matters
The invitation to embrace
The peace of solitude
The centre of being

If only …

Intentions

A poem that I wrote for Brett’s Future Dream Gallery…

MEANINGS AND MUSINGS

When I saw Brett’s Dream Gallery, I couldn’t resist contributing… so this is the poem ‘Intentions‘.

I close my eyes, my body sleeps and my mind drifts away….to a faraway land

Where we see perfection on our bodies, beauty in each living creature, pleasure in every gesture…

This is home

A guest poem – ‘This is Home’ – on Eye Will Not Cry. Enjoy!

MEANINGS AND MUSINGS

Eyewillnotcry1973’s invitation was a surprise, and humbling and daunting, given how well he writes. 

Well I try, and here is the result…

This is home

Unsure of her reception
Despite an invitation
She steps across the threshold
Into her fantasy
And she waits.

Thanks again Eyewillnotcry1973 for your invitation, and a fitting image for the poem…?  🙂

It has been fun.  And to quote Eyewillnotcry1973 “your interpretation of my words, is of course yours“.

And those who do not know Eyewillnotcry1973 and his words, visit Eye Will Not Cryand you’ll be mesmerized.

Enjoy!

Between waking and sleeping

Copyright 2010 Florence Thum

Between waking and sleeping

In the space between waking and sleeping
I welcome your embrace
Your breath on my neck
Your hands caresssing

In the space between waking and sleeping
I relish all of you
Sensuous evocative
Searching enveloping

In the space between waking and sleeping
The shared joy of release
The moment of meeting
Engraved in our hearts.

Tortured soul

Tortured Soul

In that moment of clarity
I see the grace of God
In that moment of love
I see the Universe conspires
To bring light and hope
To a tortured soul.

A soul longing to be free
A brilliant mind wanting to take flight
A man calling out for salvation
And as he traverse this long road
Will all be put to right
At his journey’s end.
