Awareness

Rating: 5.0

Oh, let us savor this beginning
So sublime,
And rush not
As excitement weighs heavily
Upon our minds.
Yet, we must not hesitate
To answer the soft
And gentle awareness,
Of intense and increasing closeness.
For to surrender is to

Keep desire alive.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Sometimes we miss the beautiful, quiet excitement of an experience by rushing headlong into it. And then it is gone, and never will that point in time be passed again. It can never be gotten back. And much is lost through not waiting, and contemplating.

Great poem on being aware of the little moments we accidentally let slip through our fingers the joy of waiting is great. So very true in most moments in life that are meaningful. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn

That is the problem with everyone nowadays. Nobody wants to wait everyone seems to be in a rush and not going anywhere. Love takes time and should not be rushed along. One should take the time and savor the sweet moments. A lovely write.

And much is lost through not waiting, and contemplating. So wonderfully explained by this foot note! For the joy of waiting is great. We are prone to miss this joy by 'rushing headlong'. So beautifully portrayed! The day is begun with a nice, well poised poem. Thank you.

This poem blows my mind. For to surrender is to keep desire alive. What words can do to one's mind, and you have that power to captivate one's mind. Anticipation!
