A Patchwork Of Soul Poem by Wojja Fink

A Patchwork Of Soul

Rating: 5.0

I stumble on poets whom I’ve not before read
With visions of mountains to climb in my head
Old mysteries to learn buried deep in my heart
Viewed from a mind we’re a long way apart
But the mystery unfolds in a patchwork of art
Eastern light shines in the rhythms of men
Who seemingly travell and come back yet again
They say that it’s true there’s not far to go
If you travel light and forget all that you know
It’s a patchwork of heaven sewn through the ages
Sung by the poets and sat on by Sages
It’s a mystery of words with meanings revealed
When the tongue is silent the ears are healed,
In amazement in wonder the silence is bliss,
As thoughts turn to rainbows the Self sends a kiss.

I fink you're a pretty talented writer and thinker mister, having had a mewander through your gear. I did have a bit of problem chewing the England one though - a slight constitutional defect on my part perhaps... But an entertaining page or three of poems in prospect good sir...

'When the tongue is so silent the ears are then healed, In amazement in wonder the silence is bliss, As thoughts turn to rainbows as the Self sends a kiss.' - Very noteworthy lines indeed. You have caught the right spirit. You serve your poem straight from the heart to the heart of the reader.

You're sure are right about the patchwork, I sometimes think, when it's dark, I'm a bit of a Frankenstien.

I love the last three lines, I can tell they have come deep within the soul and yet tells so much loud and clear. Beautifully done

John, there's a smart rhythm to this verse and meaningful thoughts too. That's a great combination to have in a poem. Frank
