Ultimate Presence

The exquisite presence

Of caressing silence

Spilling deeply

Into the softened heart

Untying knots of memory

Washing them away gently

Filling this earthly vessel

No longer an island

With profound knowing

That I am not alone

*

“Wealth is the ability to fully experience life. “

(Henry David Thoreau)

      Thank-you, Lindy. Knots in the past are difficult to dissolve, but they can be understood and let go. Takes time. Happy that you connected to my poetry. ❤

    You are so gifted, Olga, and have truly captured the experience I had just this morning at the riverside. We are never really alone. Wish I could hold that feeling always.
