From the Pocket of a Dream

*Arms Full Of Sky*

There is a game
an experiment of life
A trial
with the soul as a stake
It takes place
in a moment of despair
when the heart
pressed to the limit
feels no more
at the point of nowhere
on this fragile line of time
It happens suddenly
when expectation has no sense
and there is no vision
no path before the eyes
no roads no destination
It is to pass
or to fall

He was the game
The life-given trial
The gift
He dared to offer
the arms full of sky
He knew how to wait
in the desert of life
My senses went mad
forgetting their real place
I felt a scent of the dream
I tasted his voice
and touched his eye color
I saw his heart
His soul stood in front of me
And I could hear it

    This reminded me of a music- Bond- Big Love Adagio / find it if you like on utube/ reading the poem gave me the same feeling as listening the music … a very beautiful feeling!

    Not only are your words harmoniously intertwined with one another, dancing so lovely for the reader …they are also extremely thought provoking. I love a good read that begs me to ask my own questions and gives me wonderful images to ponder. Thank you.

    There is something so magical in this poem. I read it twice and found it deepen the second time, as I knew it would.

    We are all souls and visions sailing, in this world but not of it, this says to me.

    Happy Wednesday, Eclipse.
    WoW! This poem…I think it’s the most beautiful I’ve read from you yet!
    The transition from the depths of nowhere into the waiting arms of love…I almost want to cry.
    Sounds to me like love has a firm grip on your heart, as it does mine.
    Simply beautiful.

    Well done, my friend!

    first – love your blog design…beautiful…
    and very nice poem…great title and love how you take us by the hand and lead us into the story… fav lines…

    It takes place
    in a moment of despair
    when the heart
    pressed to the limit
    feels no more
    at the point of nowhere
    on this fragile line of time

    The arms full of sky – such a powerful image. And these amazing synaesthesias … love builds bridges across the impossible : )
