It Feels Like A Pause - Poem by Anita Atina

It feels like a pause

As my life waits for the past to catch up

And the present to fully engage

To inner truths that our souls know

But our mind doesn’t recognise fully

So at this pause

Where past and present converge

A rich tapestry of feelings

With rays of hope, repose

Waiting for the dam to fill

And on reaching fullness

Will the floodgates open

Will life, burst forth

Sweeping away the past debris

And finding a new path ahead

Treasures too it will carry

To the next destination I’m told

But for now

I wait for the pause

To quietly unfold

    The pause...the present moment we need to live in and need to respond to if we are to be fully alive... (Report)Reply

    This is a superb blend of spiritual truth-seeking and personal angst. Waiting for ' The present to fully engage/To inner truths that our souls know/But our mind doesn’t recognise fully' is brilliant - as is the clear structure and language of this fine poem.
    love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
