Dee Daffodil

Blowing In The Wind

If a sit still long enough
And focus...really focus
I begin to shrink
In size...until I'm tiny...tiny...tiny...

If I really focus hard enough
My layers are stripped away
To the core of my existance
That will never ever fade

If I really focus hard enough
I can actually disappear
Into the void of nothingness
Of which I have no fear

For once this moment comes for me
I will be free once again
To blow upon the wind
Wherever I may choose

I will travel to far off places
I will watch my loved ones grow
I will linger when and where I choose
An no one...will ever know...

    i was waiting for you to reverse the process, and grow bigger, and i guess you did, in your own little way. The proverbial bug on the wall, with good intentions.
    And you got to play on a popular song title in the process.
    Love it.

    Wow. Thought this was wonderful. First read I thought it was a 'waiting-to-die' poem but that's FAR too cynical. Levelled, layered and very pretty. S x

    Methinks you must be studying meditation - or at least have found your own version of it. Your description perfectly reveals the process of peeling away the layers of illusion and finding the stillness in the very centre of your being - that place of stillness which is perfection. This is a wonderful poem that comes from a very deep place. Simply and lyically written, you will inspire many with your profound and accessible words. love, Allie xxxxxxxxx

    I am in awe of your thought process here, I always wanted to be invisable to the eye.....especially the naked eye.
