Uriah Hamilton

Reincarnation Highway - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

I’m older now,
So much older now
That she has found me
Than when first she sought me.

I’ve drifted through centuries
Like a dream returning
Night after night,
I’ve made my way
Through landscapes of innumerable days
Along the reincarnation highway.

An ancient priestess at the temple
For a wedding of a friend
Offered me a perfumed handkerchief
With directions for a rendezvous
With the mistress of my soul
In the secret night.

Destiny was distinctly calling
With the alluring voice of a songbird;
The weariness of my wait
Was coming to a positive conclusion.
Every being must wander the forest of immense time
Until he is united with his intended.

    Wow! Adore the title and the sentiments of the poem are so so true to real life....sometimes a union of such epic lovers takes a winding road to achieve....we learn a little every step of our world weary way.....Truly wonderful work and I hope the journey is fulfilling soon, smiling at you, TAi (Report) Reply

    Totally fascinating. The sensual united with the intellect, the spirit.

    Write on, Uriah. Many readers, myself included, look forward to your latest verses.
