Essence - Poem by Smoky Hoss

Rain from the sky,
Mixes with cloudy emotion,
Lingering behind my eyes-

A foggy recollection is given to ask,
Where before have I seen this day,
From my discordant past-

Perhaps a mountain top, or a canyon floor,
Somehow I feel this day I know,
From somewhere far before-

These mystic memories cryptically contain,
Timeless pictures of hope,
Displayed within eternities ever expanding frame-

Unsettled becomes my heart,
By this essence of thought,
Wondering if in it all am I merely watching, or actually taking part-

Is it now, or is it then,
Am I going,
Or have I already been-

There is an essence of great life so present,
Blended into each moment,
And even every living breath-

It crosses the boundaries of time,
Connecting so many hearts, souls,
And minds-

How can it be found,
Deciphered, decoded,
Understood and known-

A great and wonderful mystery,
Alluring, calling, and saving,
Through all humanity-

Capricious consternations on this, such a dark day,
Glow with the essence of the unexplainable,
Yet, shine a beautiful light to guide, along the way-

Holy is this Essence burning into the heart,
The Essence of eternity spread throughout all time,
Bringing all together at the finish, as it was at the start-

Essence bids: all come,
And find, where you are going,
Is to, where you are truly from.
