Another poem


Here's another poem I wrote. I'll let it speak for itself.

FAR AWAY

You're so far away.
Fly up to the clouds.
You find me
And pull me to you urgently.
White bodhicitta and amrita
Fall down with the rain.
I want you to hold me again.
Hurry, right away!
We have to save the world.

Just beautiful! I am a free-flyer and I spent all yesterday afternoon riding sky above Eastbourne in the South of England. The metaphor of reaching to the skies for life and love is so powerful it haunts me and your poem rekindled that. Finding your poem first thing this morning is like finding a treasure. Thank you.

warm xx

I am so very glad my poem touched your heart, and thank you for letting me know that. I am new at this, and you are very encouraging. The flying you do must be magical. Warm wishes, BBC

Two new vocabulary words in that for me; bodhicitta & amrita. I'm trying to wrap myself around the meaning of the poem. Very nice.

Thanks Ranger. White bodhicitta and amrita are from vajrayana Buddhist iconography, on an ultimate level male and female essence or active and receptive energy. BBC
