. . .. . I want to rest but my mind doesn't cease probing the known universe Awake and in sleep always searching Seeking the portal to the unseen, unknown cosmos of the All The words echo Don't explain just do Follow your will to the beginning of something new Stop living in the moment after Live and be in the moment that is right now Looking for clues Asking for understanding fulfillment peace in my mind So I write until the world first breaks then expands then opens Freeing me Revealing the ultimate truth I am the narrator This is all my creation . .. . . Q. Lenise Lee
I imagine you holding me
I imagine you wrapping me in a tender embrace
I imagine your lips, whispering against my ear
I imagine you pulling me close, squeezing me tight
I imagine you wiping away all my tears, dispelling all my fears
I imagine your mouth, pressed against mine..time fades away
I imagine you and I, never again apart
I imagine you tending to my heart
I imagine you giving me the greatest gift, to feel what love is really like
i have dreamed dreams
of moons rising
of suns setting
of worlds spinning, in reverse
around castles and mountains, laid waste
of gods and men, long-forgotten
hearts pierced, yearning
rose petals scattered, waiting
to become whole
to touch the gates
of highest heaven
go or stay
stand or run
dream forever or be irrevocably awake
see all in one surreal, aching flash or shut out everything
cast a shadow or illuminate every creeping crevice
follow the path of the sun or become enchanted by the lullaby of the moon
keep quiet or shout, until the words echo back
ringing my ears
tossing off the cloak of despair
healing the blind eye
cleansing the marred heart
awakening the senses
sharpening the mind
preparing the soul
taking the breath
freeing the body
releasing the full force of destiny
Have I imagined all this, or
Have I just opened the door to reality
I know what I want to do
So why don’t I ever have the strength to do it
I feel the surge of infinite nature
The essence of a thousand glimmering suns
Racing through my veins
Yet the echo announces
Calm the storm
Lower the candle flame
The night is darker than it seems
Hide yourself behind me
Cloak yourself in the countenance of my wings
Shield yourself beneath my thoughts
Not because I despise your light
Because I want to protect it
Make it untouchable
From the reach of probing fingers
Which seek to extinguish it for always…
thinking about the future. hoping to forget the past. struggling through the now.
no matter what. my heart beats strong. my spirit pulses free. my mind journeys beyond the moment.
a runner. waiting for the perfect race. counting down the seconds. taking the pose. head bowed. knees arched. fingers pressed into the earth.
the world crawls to an aching stillness.
all of creation fixes into perfect silence.
the pop hits the air
stay the course
pound the dirt until every limb burns
there is no other choice
i can’t stop
until i touch the void
step across the finish
bring down the boundaries
break the binds
see the eternal light
I want today to be a fresh start.
I want to open my opens and see possibilities, not dead ends.
On this morning, I want to be Free to be happy, content, hopeful.
I need to feel my Spirit overflowing with radiance, touched by a spark of Divinity.
Whatever I accomplish in these small hours, if it be one small task or the moving of a great mountain, may my works have Meaning.
May my one Smile bring joy to as many people as it touches, and as many who will receive the love hiding within its gleam.
Today, I want to Believe. I want to Live. I want to Soar beyond the Great Heavens.
in our deepest dreams..leaving our broken world behind..after the end..we’ll be together again ~lenise
What else could there be?
What else awaits me?
Write til my fingers cramp
Write about everything
til the words live on their own
til I can feel my heart beat again
til the possibilities don’t scare me
til the veil is lifted
sun beams break free
til I find what I’m looking for
til I understand what I’m living for
til I feel the kiss of forever
til I embrace what
What..I will be.
What..I long for.
will i ever find you
what did i miss?
what word – phrase – pause – did i miss?
that would make everything – me – make sense.
i’ve heard this – before – where?
why didn’t i notice – pause – then?
turn it off – pause – or turn it up?
shake off the deep – sleep – pause
or fall further?
touch – the mirror – step through?
in the end (or the beginning)
I will be, what I will be.
dusk – or – pause – dawn?
invisible – to some.
mystery – to others.
never quite what I – am
would become – pause
Of all the snapshots I have, from vacations long gone, this is my favorite moment in time…Whenever I’m suffering some silent agony or held in the strong grip of an aching frustration, my mind always wanders back to this day…one of the most wonderous views I have ever experienced…with forever stretching out before me, admiring creation and all her glory…I love when the clouds do funny back flips across the contrasted skyline…I feel…alive, breathing, as if being drawn toward a cosmic threshold…So here I stand, posing, watching…waiting…for the morning song…the song of the morning…..
Remember the kiss, promises sealed in forever
Harsh winds, steer thoughts astray
But the heart always returns
to what it knows, to be
right and true
leaves bud on awakening limbs
twilight dipped in lavender shade
silver trails along a golden dawn
I, in love
words on a page
lives in a song
Let the moment wash over, like a quiet summer rain
Soar to heights, beyond the rapture
A touch of sunlight
grazing upon full lips
softer than a lover’s kiss
The flame in my heart flickers to renewed life
Shades of creation,
answer my beacon
illuminate my spirit
Against the cloak of the cosmos,
embers of love burst forth with fiery perfection
Across limitless oceans of midnight space,
flares of desire spiral into eternity
