Back On the Polychromatic Drip-Dry Flying Carpet



Back On The Polychromatic Drip-Dry Flying Carpet


So quickly, the roots of a legacy stalled.


I considered it highly unlikely

that my deepest soul song

could anytime soon again be translated.


But, a friend told me

to listen to my instincts,

and that I would eventually acquire

that special moment when the veil lifts,

and gradually all shades of color

would come back into the light.


He said I would relearn

how to succumb to the temptation of being offered many chances

of feeling what once felt so inaccessible.

That I would be able to shake off my reservations,

and be able to offer a bold new voice to match the old.


Back then, the painful sea of love was just too deep.

Now, no longer drowning, 

I do remain wet, (for the time being,)

but my weeks of having no plans,

and a questionable future have passed,

and with so little to lose and so much to gain,

I’m again able to express those thoughts so difficult to say aloud,

and therein lies the magic.
