~ Residing in a Soul ~


Dusk and the boy
Originally uploaded by LensENVY


Has it been in a place?
That resided for awhile
A gap between times
A silence amidst of breath
In a forgotten place
Just deserted even from the wind
Undistracted peace
Weaved within silence
Just detached for all what I think I am
With no clue where I have been
And towards where I would reach
As the weight of bones are freed
Unveiled with humanely skin
With all the scars are erased
No powder mask to face
Then was in my soul exposed
For once, I truly resided into my soul

I received the photos, thank you very much. I would like to put one of them on my blog. If you object please let me know (I'll wait a bit).
Tell me: who did the henna designs for you?? Is it traditional to have friends or family do those.
My wishes for a happy life are yours and your husbands. May you both walk in the light of warmth and light.

The soul is a mystery. "Undistracted peace" is a good way to describe what I look for when I need to remember my higher self.

Your poetry is always full of your emotions, so beautifully expressed.
To reside in our souls does require exposing ourselves. ("no powder mask, weight of bones are freed)

Miss you much-
Enjoying reading you again (sorry I've been in and out of blogland and hope to be here more often in 2009)
hugs,
