small
very small
holding in 
energy still, not wishing to expend
or expand
wanting to be 
just be
not do, not think, not figure it out, not plan
just be

contracting my energetic circle
to include just a few
just those whom 
i trust
who
have been with me
through it all
and will be through it all to come
great spirit willing

so lucky am i 
to have met you
showing me other ways
than those with which i was conditioned
what is the point to life other 
than our spirit's evolution?
than our soul's satisfaction?
is that to be found in cultural ideas of success and meaning?
must we conform to being worthy, 
through ego enriching feats of accomplishment?

there is a vast universe that exists
beyond the fickle constructs of humans
we are trapped in mental fictions, 
a very small and limiting collectively agreed-upon reality
being told it is all there is, we know no better
and diminish our potential to meet those parameters

stepping outside of delineated borders
is a process, continual, 
needing attention
and intention
stepping outside of the prescribed realm 
leaves one exposed
(but free)
and so i draw my own energetic circle 
of being, which protects me 
while also connects me 
to the unlimited infinite of the universe
the true potential

if i could only teach you half of what you taught me...

soul satisfaction
spiritual communion
evolutionary wonder
communal inner union
diversions from confusion
greatness of us all
the school of ever always
in imaginations hall
illusionary walls
melt away to nothingness
reflections of observances
regenerating innocense
invigorating sanctity
resonating signs
turning inner patterns
of spiritual sublime

..peace..

it was quite easy to write as you had laid down the foundation already mrs life.so really I would say you wrote it but with some flavour of my muse.

hope you have a nice day..neil

hi neil, i'm fine, don't worry. thank you for your concern! i'm just feeling a bit down that no one seems interested in what i have to share here. except you of course, which means so much to me, as a fellow poet and kindred spirit, so thank you for all your support and love.

no problem mrs life,glad your ok...
what about writing poems on other peoples site's and then leaving the origonal over hear,blogs are hard because there are so many of them and as this one is relatively new its not going to attract as much attention....
so dont take it to heart,also their is eriks and amarynths new shangri-la site I know they would need a dancer poet,and you completely fit that whole outfit....

anyway respects neil
