Enlightening Feeling - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak
Noticing lately that my eyesight is deteriorating a
little, not able to always focus when writing or
Having cataracts slowly growing, waiting for surgery
eventually, meanwhile being irked by this interfere-
ence with my writing at times.
Putting up with it because I cannot stop or put aside
my natural poetical nature, an aspect of my being,
always wanting to stay in a bluened atmosphere.
Taking in everything with wonder, awe and curiosity,
listening, seeing, touching, smelling, hearing what
lies within it's environment.
There is nothing like it outside of this interior life,
inescapable wonder always filling my mind, taking me
into realms beyond intellect and imagination.
Using ingenuity and innate talent to access all their
properties, giving new and exciting discoveries, decent
and beautiful images and visions appearing.
Surrounding me with an enlightening feeling of accumula-
ting wisdom and interior knowledge that keeps my mind
filled with appreciation for it's knowing within me.
