Sunshine seal my vow

John Bauer

Wandering through colonnades of majestic pine
Hidden shadowy underworld
Stabbed through with shafts of silvery shine
Ground-mist seething, furl and unfurl

Crescent moon upon my brow
To east where light return
Sunshine seal my solemn vow
Trust your guidance and wisdom to receive hearts yearn

Faint I feel the Goddess response
Live life guided by true hearts desire
Prepare for an upheaval, life renaissance
Follow the path that your muse inspire
Love, laugh, follow foolish ideas now and then
Rest assured you have the lionheart strength
Find those moments of zen
Have faith you know your souls wavelength

Wrote the first draft of this a few days ago. Since then I’ve wrestled with editing the piece. By know I don’t know if I doubt this piece because something is missing, or because there is some internal upheaval in my life right now. Usually I don’t have trouble – letting a piece go – and hitting the publish button, but this time I do.

So some feedback would be gladly accepted, be it good or bad.

I never knew, or dreamed, I would write poetry, so this is a learning experience to discover and hone my craft.

Inspiered by Kerry’s Skylover Wordlist for February

  1. You’ve crafted your draft into a sterling poem about zen and the soul’s wavelength, by wandering in the woods – I see no sign of wrestling!
    I love the descriptive details in the opening stanzas, especially:
    ‘Hidden shadowy underworld
    Stabbed through with shafts of silvery shine
    Ground-mist seething, furl and unfurl’.
