Guest writer, Personal development “My Soul Longs to Live and Breathe Poetry” August 21, 2014 My soul longs to live and breathe poetry To write from the depths of my inner being Freeing myself from society’s woes Celebrating the artistic part of me often unknown To write is like creating a masterpiece of art A beautiful sculpture of my own making Words on the page finding their own space on the page before me Befitting surprise and delight from me Breathing life into words Becomes me as I dance with joy in my soul Poetry quiets my busy human mind Creating a space for harmony to reside in its place A poet am I Dancing with words in the twilight and at dawn Bringing new meaning to my life As I become transformed by words of grace and known to myself once more My heart enchanted and at one with this interchange of words From the universe brought to my mind As my fingers do their own ballet and type happily With almost a mind of their own – so it seems to be to me I am never alone with my poetry as it comforts who I am inside And awakens my higher self to clarity and more vision Like a treasure found in the depths of an ocean I find out who I am and my life’s purpose is deepened and elevated I rejoice with the rhythm of poetic prose As it strikes no distance between your heart and mine Bringing us closer to the spiritual doorway And who we really are in the heavenly domain Passion unfolded, friends with this discovery; this writing craft Merging harmoniously is my hope Within the hearts and minds of others As they read my poetry In sync with this Oneness between us made manifest Poetry and prose complete who I am Bringing the best parts of myself forth And repairing the hurt places within my life’s journey A new sunset, a new sunrise A new and precious opportunity to write once more As I delight and find favor in this relationship Between me and my musical prose Noticing I am transformed as my soul rejoices Realizing my inner being is drawing from the well of the divine Awareness and great meaning are the gifts Brought to me in living and breathing poetry By; Denise Thorpe Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)MoreClick to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window) Related Previous Are you ready to open your gift?

What I got out of this is while we are all quilty these days and in these times of being so busy we forget to take a timeout for the things we love and most dearest to our souls life passes us by feeling a bit of emptiness. With the inspiration I received from this poem I applaud this poet for reminding me to take that timeout and go to that happy place to do that one thing to sooth my heart & soul. Thank you Denise Thorpe Renée Vos de Wael August 22, 2014 at 7:11 pm Reply I totally agree. Thank you for your respond.
