"Enchantment Aches"

Minor earth, major sky
Originally uploaded by Sameli.

Allow this wounded heart to cry
Few droplets of tears
Hesitant dew
Falling away from a leaf
As to gently tender each pain
With a breathe of earth
Dip the pain into the river
To taste my soul within the waterway
Do you hear its weeping voice?
Within the sound of water
Attentively, you blend into the river
No reflection of me out there
Nor am I a crying face
Evaporated in quest of clouds
Yet I linger many days in air
Releasing all molecules of aches
That cleansed from earthly wounds
Reaching clouds

How can one term heavy days, the let downs weigh heavily within the walls of human heart. Let me begin with a smile to sieve disappointment away. Its already starting to work …

I am glad to see to have been able to express you pain in this poem.... lovely symbolism

You are right, some easy things become big and burdensome issues to deal with and they come to weight us down...

I find that when that happens to me, it is time to proceed with that project perhaps in a different manner and look for another avenue or avenues and, if no doors open, I believe it is not for me to do...
It took me years to figure "this one" out.
The Universe has a way of "taking care" of things outside our hands.

I am comfortable with the thought that you felt at ease to express yourself at my blog. It is always OK to do so.

Take good care
Love, joy and laughter to you and yours

There is a lot of regret and pain here but I think the last lines gives us hope that is it going to pass:

"Yet I linger many days in air
Releasing all molecules of aches
That cleansed from earthly wounds
Reaching clouds"

Beautifully expressed and gentle tones throughout the poem. Even in the pain there is a beauty to your words.
