Waiting For The Rain…

girl in rain

΅〜  ೋღ   ღೋ      〜΅  

On the precipice of reality’s revelation….
Staring out at the majesty of the sea…
Thoughts wander aimlessly..

΅〜 〜΅ 

My life’s imprint…
Introspective…
On the cusp of inspiration…
Illusory images of illumination…

΅〜 〜΅ 

Enigmatic longing…
Destiny ever so slowly revealed…
I wish as the waves roll on oblivious of me…
I wish for epiphany…
Enlightenment…
Knowledge of Fate’s intent…

΅〜 〜΅ 

Contemplation of the ocean… timeless…mysterious…immortal…
Lost in the rhythm if its reaching to and fro…
Enchanted by its gifts which permeate all my senses…
Glimpses of future tempting me to push further…

΅〜 〜΅ 

I wait for any answer to my quest…
I wait for direction…
I wait for peace…
I wait for the rain to fall…

΅〜 〜΅

  6. Paradigm indeed! The solitary nature of your setting is such a vivid reminder that we always, ultimately face these epic thoughts of the future alone. You create such a hauntingly beautiful visual of an epic cliff and seascape which, unless I am over thinking, this could be a reference to me mentioning Turner seascapes in one of our previous chats? xxxxx

    • Indeed we are alone in these epic quests of self discovery. Thank you for your most exquisite insight and thoughts on this piece…it makes me exceedingly happy to be able to take you on this journey into my dreamscape! As for where the impetus came from for this seascape jaunt…well I find inspiration everywhere!! I could attribute it to you…but then it might lose some of it’s mysterious quality hehe…. xxxxx

    they all flow into the next as they spiral with silver threads connecting words into thoughts so perfectly
    that there is no one favorite….
    your beautiful thoughts to read has made me sit still
    and re-read…as I wait for the rain too…
    Thank you for sharing such wondrous thoughts on your quest for me/us to enjoy…
    Take Care..
    You Matter…

    • I am sad that you know this feeling dearest friend…sometimes words can help with the healing. I know mine have. I seem to of late be bouncing all over the place lately between happy, sad, excited, sad, etc.

    • Thank you for your kind words about my blog and this poem. Yes, I do have a reason for the words “to fall”. When I write, the words just sort of flow out of me and onto the screen…all at once. I write them as I feel them.

      I recognize this ‘style’ of mine, which might be viewed as totally unconventional and unique, may be off-putting to some. However, it is my way of expressing myself with words…much the way an artist paints…I paint my thoughts with words. Each word has importance to the whole. I have been lovingly called a “language anarchist” and am exceedingly happy to be a non-conformist. I assure you it is not through a lack of proper education that leads me to write this way….rather it is my preference.

      Your comment on another of my poems…”In A Moment” led me to your site. Thank you for your visit.
