A METAPHYSICAL PRAYER

A METAPHYSICAL PRAYER

I survey my soul in mirrors and windows
With double sound and single delight
Like tasting sweet rain at noon
I suppose no one knows
The haunting familiarity I find
'Tis a piston that fires
That heartfelt arrow of motivation
The magnetism
That all original action exerts
What is the aboriginal self
And oh how it hurts
To don the cape for these questions
I survey my soul in mirrors and windows
Moreover, I believe in my spiritual journey
And I plead on my knees
For what I might find
I pray, let metaphysics be my guide
Help me return to the primitive morality
And purity of humanity
Allow me to implement
These truths in my life
To allow love to flow freely
Through me
And through all
That I find.....

Hi Love.....This is a perfect example in writing of your own personal journey to discover yourself through the mysteries of the metaphysical....a prayer of seeking to find truth and motivation of the spirit of God that leads to living life in love's influence...that is certainly what motivates me....beyond the mind's understanding...a real spirit that spurs us all to investigate and draw to something so inexplicable but more real than what we experience in this physical world. To understand who we are, I think we have to ask questions and look beyond the mirror of what we see in life...I like the meditative and pleading feel of this out of sincere curiosity and interest in the spiritual and metaphysical.ย  You keep cranking out fine representations of who you are in your writing, and showing how polished you have become as a poet as well.ย  Love, Hugs, n Kisses xox Your C
