Humans Really Don’t Know

“The Sea Inside”  painting by Samy Charnine

Humans really don’t know
How life is to stardust souls
Forced to hibernate like bears in snow
Only feeling the truth trough small portholes

Humans really don’t know
How life with an awakened soul
Could lead to a constant flow
Of abundant love through soul’s window

Humans really don’t know
How life led by true purpose of soul
Where gratitude leads to divine inner glow
Calmly transform their minds inner fishbowl

Humans really don’t know
How to manifest all they want via their souls
How to choose lifelong learning and growth
How into spiritual living while in flesh enroll

Written in response to the beautiful and thought inducing painting at Sunday Muse # 105. Made me read up on the symbolism on Koi fish. And they seem to symbolize a whole bunch of good things. Tenacity, Wealth, Abundance, Luck, Courage, Transformation, Uniqueness, Non-conformity, Family Strength and have lots of Buddhist Connotations. (source)

  1. I love the message in this poem – the stardust souls, soul’s window. If we can just get there, what a transformation that would be. I believe it’s possible, current evidence to the contrary, lol.

  2. I was sure I’d commented on your poem before, but I can’t find it, so I’ll try again!
    I like the repetition of the title throughout the poem, as well as the repetition of soul(s), emphasising the meaning and giving the poem structure, together with the end rhymes. I especially love ‘stardust souls / Forced to hibernate like bears in snow / Only feeling the truth trough small portholes’, and the progression from small portholes to ‘soul’s window’ and the ‘inner fishbowl’.

  3. Metaphysically, I believe in past lives, and I think that old souls, with each incarnation, know a little more about our cosmic riddles. But it is being in lesson for each lifetime that is the real challenge.
