A Knowing

A Wise Old Tree.
A Wise Old Tree.
  • As a child I knew things

That I wasn’t supposed to

Mind would receive ideas

Not my own but I knew who

Images quietly arrived uncalled

Once I saw a knife in my mind

My dear friend was hurt that night

Alone a lot all lifelong with silence

My inner awareness was heightened

Understanding then awesomely dawned in my

Young tender heart that clarified my senses

Death then visited my father suddenly

His nearness though remained because

Between worlds there is no real separation

Now, at fifty five accepting these gifts finally

“Okayness” has settled in my soul deeply

I will humbly speak my truth to anyone anytime

Receiving these tender messages is a part

Of who I am, writersdream9 no more shame

Joyfullness because the veil is really thin

Songs just come unbidden and lovingly

For so long it stayed hidden as I kept it so

Now it’s in the light of day It is light

Thank You God!

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
