Feather-veins of Gold


Feather-veins of Gold

Only warmth and gratitude linger in my thoughts
Cherished are the lessons that drew to me the hermit card
In going beyond your expectations I found feather-veins of gold
My path is one in which I seek to find the good of all things
I've been able to do that
In you I find beauty that inspires me
No anger nor rage do I hold
The lies you wanted to teach me boundaries with have instead become my steps beyond separation
You felt you needed falsehood in order to enter my gates
Yet, with honesty I've taken residence in your bosom gladly washing the dust from your feet
I've learned to flourish in your unceasing attempts to define me and how I should feel
Yet, I hover in the stillness where your heart beats
For there is where you've shown me to hear your unspoken truths 
The crumbled aspects of my life are directions onto an opening path
Do not look to me for scorn or derision
Compassion dwells as constant companion
You've help me take a deeper soul-view
It isn't blindness that guides me but sight
Sight of that which you keep locked deep inside not allowing to breathe with me
In the quietude of spiritual allowance I am free
Free to engage my wit and curiosity
I have found your light
I cannot forsake it
Neither will I look away
I am not ashamed nor are you forbidden
In our definitions of each other we have failed
We've stumbled now in a field where we cannot define
For we are always becoming
I permit truth to reside however it unfolds itself
Surely I've not traveled in your shoes though at times I wish I was the leather that caressed your chosen path
No need to ask me if you have a chance
The answers remain the same
I am in you
And you are in me
Because of that I Am blessed

Heartfelt commented on Feather-veins of Gold


I love this. That is really all I can say. Every line of this screams feelings I have been happily familiar with. Experience is the essence of wisdom... Wonderful. Simply wonderful.



Thank you, it formed itself.

The picture immediately told me that there was a story to be told - the words starting pouring fourth feelings from the first lines and your prose combined so many lines that linger that I was soaking it all as I put the pieces together of your thoughts and feelings..."We've stumbled now in a field where we cannot define, For we are always becoming". Definitely a 10



Yes, a beautiful picture it is, though I was not positive it belonged in this piece, yet I instinctively feel it does. Glad you enjoyed the write, it is heartfelt to one I love most dearly. So much wounding is done in our attempts to define one another when in truth few are stagnant hence "always becoming". Appreciate your scoring.

Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.

Plato (BC 427-BC 347) Greek philosopher.
