Touch

Painting by Beata Belanszky Demko

Do miracles rise from the cracked crust of the earth,
each new world existing both for, and because of divine love?
Do you dip into one pool and each ripple is a new-born dream manifest
as human on earth,
as star in sky,
as song in space?
Or do you simply sit as a ledger line, supporting all notes that wander off the scale, searching for the extremes?
Floating freely among us all,
do you walk on water?
Will there be a time when we will
reminisce from home about this last mission to earth,
how crazy and beautiful it all was even before leading up to the last suffering cry? Do you, like I, long for that sacred toast, so near I can already hear the chime,
our touching crystal?

Also for dVerse question prompt. What can I say, I am filled with many questions and but one answer.

    “do you simply sit as a ledger line” – great image and question.

    I think this line is true: “each new world existing both for, and because of divine love?” And the “missions to earth”.

    Fantastic – ‘long for that sacred toast’ – so good.

    ‘Or do you simply sit as a ledger line, supporting all notes that wander off the scale, searching for the extremes?’ Wow!
    And these lines spoke to me especially:
    ‘Will there be a time when we will
    reminisce from home about this last mission to earth,
    how crazy and beautiful it all was even before leading up to the last suffering cry?’

    These questions are deep and philosophical but wrapped in the glow of crystals… really love your poetry.

    Beautiful response ~

    Sacred toast threw me off for a second, but I’m cool now.

    I love your poem. It hums in all the right places. Oddly I feel a literary philosophical kinship to your word-smithing & spiritual undercurrents, Somehow our paths have not intersected in the poetic ebb & flow at the Pub. But, although it might be just projection on my part, I really get your style, seem to be able to read in the empty spaces between lines; smile.

      Sometimes I like to meditate on the angels and what they have to go through on earth to be spiritual guardians to people. Sometimes I feel so far and fallen, yet in those rare special moments, so close. I’m so appreciative of your kinship words as I feel a good many of your poems on this level too, Glenn.

    This is so incredibly beautiful. I have to echo Glenn’s comment: this “hums in all the right places.”

    This is beautiful. Very descriptive and vivid. You really do pant an amazing picture with and without the gorgeous painting above 🙂

    🙂 I AND HE

    In water I do truly sink.
    But to the Man I have a link.
    And if to complicated He
    division in the wet will be.

      We have a responsibility to our protectors as well as to our fellow man. It is indeed sad and sunken when man separates himself from God.

    Magnificent poetic eyes to write such an amazing, spiritual piece. The ‘sacred toast’ leads my imagination to the rite of union of flesh and spirit. ❤

    • Gospel Isosceles · 24 Days Ago

      Love that. I didn’t even think of the Eucharistic imagery. Thank you for your input.

  14. Shattered in Him · 24 Days Ago

    Beautiful you!!!!

    • Gospel Isosceles · 24 Days Ago

      You’re back:)

      • Shattered in Him · 24 Days Ago

        Yes, dusting things off and finding my way around again. Needed to unplug for a time and now I’m ready to find my groove. I’m playing catch up now! Hugs to you!

        • Gospel Isosceles · 24 Days Ago

          I look forward to hearing what you’ve been up to, and all with a fresh perspective. Hugs to you:)
