Anniversary …

Didn’t my heart die

on that veiled morning?

No, it beats still …

I feel a slow pulse of muffled music

tremble in my veins.

Inhale life,

touch the sun,

taste the monochrome moon and night ..

I hear the murmured

arterial refrain ..

and bow to a stronger will …

    This is so poignant, Marya ; and yet, as ever, your gaze rests rather more keenly on what is before than behind. I have often wondered what would happen to joy if sadness were to fly away. It is odd that we need contrasts in order to understand, or even see, anything at all.

    Hello Jamie … lovely to see you 🙂

    Your thoughts have reminded me of these words of Kahlil Gibran ..

    ‘ Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.
    And the selfsame well from which your laughter arises was oftentimes filled with your tears.
    And how else can it be?
    The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy it can contain.’

    Hope you have a lovely weekend.
