i can see again-
my eyes are open once
more to myself-
my heart is open once
more to the thoughts
that pervaded so much
of my past-
buried thoughts-
stolen moments-
barricaded under the
safety of silence-
stolen by the actions of
fear and doubt-
within this chest lies
a spirit unbroken-
a steed burning with
the desire to run
at full pace against
the odds set forth
by an unknown
“they”-
a knight ready to
do battle against the
very blacksmith that
forged his iron hide-
i can see again-
a green landscape
made rich by hands
and voices-
a sky made blue by
the softness of a
beaming earth-
a sun made bright from
the reflections of a
billion smiles-
i can see again-
and as a result,
i can feel-
the racing heart of
the eager steed-
the eager mind of
the steady knight-
the tickle of the
grass against my skin-
the whisper of the
wind as i admire the
sky-
i can feel again-
and once more-
i speak-
my heart opens-
my hand moves-
my mind listens-
and my soul understands*

    Speechless. This is someone who is fully present, awake, has shown up for themselves and is feeling life right through the marrow of their bones. Truly beautiful piece Gary. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’›
