the path i've paved. the place it leads...

a few words, in lieu of the saturday shopping list today (as i've been out and about on this tremendously warm, spring day).  revisiting a piece i wrote and posted about one year ago, in april of 2010, a result of looking back over three years of posting on this blog...

'dances in molecules'

a soul which dances in the molecules,

soaring on waves of energy... never contained by the earthly body.

oh, how this soul delights in the literal touch ~

rain drops rolling

across the nerve endings of skin;

heart pumping, lungs expanding

to keep pace with the legs' out of control journey downhill;

the subtle hint of flavor

on tongue, and of life cycling through the marrow of this energy vessel;

and that sweet embrace of love...

souls meeting in a dance of tangled limbs,

intoxicating smiles, aroma of young life.

the soul becoming so painfully filled,

so dangerously testing the heart's beating

and the waves of brain's limited space

with emotional exultation. too much.

the soul bursts forth... a peter pan flight of happy thoughts

soaring in sweet release from the container.

holding on to the memory of the senses...

of touch and smell and voice meeting ears.

this soul can float on this pocket of bliss, so long as it avoids

that temptress of physicality.

but, like an addict to their drug, we crave more. for this is life.

this is the miracle body

that proffers our soul this journey.

the never ending work of cells.

so desperately holding on to time

for a soul which only knows the boundaries of such mundane notions

while spending time here on land.

for as we humans live on after gifts of love and glass and fruit whither or break,

carrying the memory rather than the physical object,

so too does the soul.

floating forever on the ecstasy of each second's mortal memory.

a very happy saturday to all of you, and a sincere thank you to all you lovely readers for sharing in my journey...

i'm planning a giveaway for next week... perhaps an orchid?  what would you like to see?
