Poets United Midweek Motif/Unity -- Writer's Digest/ Help

Unity

i am reminded that the word 'alone'      means all one      one with the universe

one with the rising sun            with the light spreading      over taos valley

one with the sun                  that sets on the horizon          one with the colors

red, yellow, blue & gold               one with the line drawn in the sand

i am all one with the wave           that comes to shore           one with the wind

that makes the windchime sing        one when we are together          still one

when i am alone             i am one with the little bird that catches flies for her young

one with the nighttime sky        & all the stars there in           i think of you

& know you are not far away        you are one within me       & i am with you

  6. I absorbed every word of your poem about oneness, like a nourishing drink to my depleted spirit. So beautiful, my friend, especially the oneness within, where our loved ones live. In the second, I can hear your support for the friend in need of help. You are a good friend.

  10. Hi Annell. I love this piece of writing. "i am one with the little bird that catches flies for her young", I wish I had written that. I hope all is well with you.

  11. When someone you love dies they are still within your heart and mind and your poem so clearly demonstrates that. Stunningly beautiful.

  16. I think this is more than a crossover Annell - it is the next step...realising that we are never truly alone and if we are it does not always mean darkness..i'm sorry it took me so long to visit xo

  17. Something to be remembered. We are never alone and we are never not unified in a true sense.
