You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself. ~Alan Alda

The Essence That YOU Are

When the essence of a thought

Becomes more than just the whim

When the feeling after dreaming

Will not fade into the dim


When the heart is not content

By the task of constant beats

When your spirit tells your soul

There is more that you must seek


It is time for clearer vision

It is time to stroke the stars

It is time to cultivate

The essence, that you are

BEAUTIFUL!!! A perfect utterance in my book and well worth the wait to see your name on the board again. My dear girl, you just get better and better - LOVE the Alda quote, too. Your words illustrate his maxim wonderfully. Love always and thanks for your visits to my den: always a treat, always welcome! :)) xx

This really is food for thought. Designed to make every reader take stock and evaluate.

So true!

What a beautiful job you have done of wielding Alda's deeply wise
observation into a poem that is a wake-up call, yet at the same time, oddly consoling.

Thank you!
