Summary: a reflection on life

Peering through the window, water apple leaves
sway with the breeze; dancers of the night
with green veined fingers cast quirky shadows
against the cream-colored concrete walls.

Beneath them, i turn to the porcelain cup
in my hands, whirling the tinted water of
fresh picked tea leaves invisible under steam
before lushing up to quench my thirst.

I look up and marvel
as succulent water apples
bounce back and forth
from their wellspring
like little children
playing tug-of-war.

It's an ingenuous spectacle
of swollen receptacles and
callyces on chlorophyll clothes
and cellulose accessories.

With the wind swatting their soft skins,
i wonder how they held on
and remained firm with every blow.
Wouldn't they want to be free
and relish liberty on the ground?

I lay my back on a soft cushion
as the reality finally convinces me
life --
in its bare simplicity.
I simply smile.

In reading this poem, it's plain to see that you have vision beyond the visible, for you see with your heart and that is a wonderful gift to have and to share.

Love & Light,

Beautifully composed, Rachelle; you take the reader to that space and moment that you describe via your verses. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and peace to you,

this piece is very well written. it really brings you to that your mind drifts away along with the words. and then the way it resolves everything in the end...just amazing.
