LIFE RING

Folder: 
2019

 

Upon sea of eternity

Enduring life’s onslaughts

With grace I pray

 

Little dot within forever I tread

Just hoping to gasp one more breath

 

A movement of arms

 

     A kick of legs

 

          The breath

 

Only one position remains

Face up, head up, eyes up

Into the heavens plead

 

Descent into fathoms begins

Hands outstretched

Frantically clawing

For smallest molecule I reach to clutch

 

Ship filled with blessed souls passes by

Blast of hope received

Ring of life tossed

Excruciating joy overwhelms

Finally, salvation!

 

Gasping, choking on gulp of air

Rope within vice-grip of hand

Pulling...

            Pulling...

                        Pulling...


Only to reach frayed end

 

Grateful for the breath

            Now drifting by wind and waves

                        In whose mercy I am

                                    Life ring embraced

For divine rescue I long

With a whirlwind of

With a whirlwind of metaphors, the feeling of life's tribulations pummeling and battering the soul roared through each line. And, like the drama of our everyday lives,  just as it seems we can't hold on, there appears the "life ring". Such a luminous title. 

 

What I love about your epic soul journeys is that I don't just read them, I experience them. This makes them powerful, life-affirming tools for inspiration. Well done!
