I am…

On my journey to knowing myself, I find I’m a mass of contradictions…

a fragrance of a forestI am the fragrance
of a forest,
embedded stillness,
gently flawless…

I am a torrent of erratic movement,
free falling,
life translucent…

I am an ocean of mercurial tones,
ebbing and flowing
secrets unknown…

I am a river,
intense and noble,
bubbling radiance,
uncontrollable!

I am a flower,
wholesome and tender,
blooming in sunshine
deeply centered…

I am a melody,
buoyant,
yet serene,
harmonious pitch,
sometimes extreme!

I am a whisper on the breeze,
almost forsaken
hard to appease…

I am a paradox, containing light,
aware of darkness
gloomy
yet bright…

  1. I agree with Gina, this is one of your finest. It’s a beautiful contradiction!

    I see autumn is upon you. And up here, we celebrate the return of the sun…brighter spring days ahead. 🙂

    Be well!

    • Thank you, Khaya, I really appreciate your comment.
      We usually glide quite gracefully into Autumn here and hardly notice the changes, then winter surprises us with a very cold shiver!
      I’m sure you are looking forward to brighter days ahead after so much snow. Have a great day! 🙂
