Take the road less travelled
Said a thought inside my head
That road is long and gravelled
But to treasures you'll be led

Take the next detour
Said a thought inside my head
Though it drizzles, maybe pours
But to sunshine you'll be led

The feet they keep to familiar path
Squashed is the thought inside my head
Then Spirit nudges without wrath
The road I walk is shred

You cannot reach the highest heights
If you cannot try be bold
Learn not to push away or fight
The voices of your soul

Quintessential Love

I am taking part in the A to Z Challenge via my blog Someday Somewhere.

For the letter "Q"  I wrote a poem on my definition of quintessential love which I am sharing here as well.

Come, wake up and love again

For I have lived through the aeons of time with you

We have traversed universes in a multitude of lifetimes

I have loved each beat of your heart, every thought in your mind

I have smiled at every rhythm your soul has orchestrated

And immersed myself in the ecstasy of your every moment

I have seen you in every aspect of my existence

And felt you in the minutest fibre of my being

I have merged my consciousness with yours

And thus bridged the chasm of this vast, endless cosmos

Wherever we are, we reach through thin veils

And blend together into one presence 

Now, and then forever.

For  GBE2's prompt - Longing

Also linking to dVerse Open Link Night

I close my eyes to see yours
For they caress my soul
In the stillness of the night
Your whispers take control

I know I have been with you 
Since the beginning of time
You're elusive I can't reach you
To touch a moment sublime

My eyes they gaze across the sea
I listen with intent
I search each nook and cranny
Until my strength is spent

My heart it longs to be with you
Each day becomes a trial
My soul is restless and distressed
Each step feels like a mile

I close my eyes to see yours
For they pacify my soul
A moment of respite for me
When yearning has a hold.

Caller ID

For  GBE2's prompt - Caller ID

You tried to reach me several times
Through nature, dreams, and songs
I did not hear the ringing tones
Oblivious I rode along

And then one day you showed yourself
In an unexpected way
How could I have missed you all these years
Seems like my life I threw away

The strange disjointed moments
Somehow fell into place
Like jigsaw puzzle pieces
And delicate crocheted lace

How could I have forgotten
The adventures that we carved
Your ID etched into my soul
The caller of my heart.
