soaked

i hear the universe ~
softly and steadily
she breathes
thoughts
into my soul.
softly ~
like the glistening petals
of a rain-drenched flower.
steadily ~
like the unceasing energy
of the rich torrents
that cascade
from the heavens.
i feel the universe ~
she infuses me,
soaking me ~
like the heavens
permeating
the deep, red earth.

As beautiful as always.
You are a gem of a poet. Pity you are in this era when people dont appreciate poetry. Hope you would have been in Wordsworth era.

This is a great ride...

Keep sharing the bounty that creation is. You understand it's nuances and sighs. You know what to listen for.

You are the earth permeated with heaven's rain, and pregnant with the words it inspires. This poem is about that, too.
