    @tanisha They’re definitely similar, I’m willing to incline that much of it also has to do with man’s perceptions. There are many commonly occurring themes associated with creation (whether by a creator or […]

    Interesting. I had to sit with this for awhile. Images of the Big Bang, or better, Genesis 1 went through my head for the longest time. Then, just this morning, of a birth. It is amazing how similar they are.

    A light, blooming, expanding, emerging into sight,
    Awaken from infinite, brought into time,
    Noises, shuddering, shaking…so loud…from silence,
    Shhh…listen…the world is beginning.

    @tanisha A lone feather in the wind, comparably miniscule in contrast to the tremendous winds which carry it. I love piano music, it never fails to take me places!

    Was it a feather on the wind you were thinking of? Was it the wind itself? A bird? Something else?

    @tanisha my inspiration was the piano piece I posted in my update, this poem is how it made me feel.

    A great description of places we can go in our mind. Do you do a vlog? This would sound great read aloud by the author!

    Breathe…slowly, calmly, into white,
    Soothed, nurtured, by heavenly light.

    Carried away by undercurrents, curling, twisting in the sky,
    I’m floating into seas of blue, further lonely, further high.

    Great words. I like very much how they are put together. Reminds me of TORN from Natalie Imbruglia.

    Help me, help! I’ve searched my home, outside,
    I think that I’m gone, I’ve died.
    I’m retracing my steps to find my corpse,

    It should all be here, obviously, under my […]

    Many times you ask yourself,
    ‘Is life worth living for?’
    And when you cry out in pain no one helps
    Unlike how it was before.

    Back then when you were a child
    On your face was plastered a smile
    A smile so […]

    Written symbols brief yet somehow profoundly long,
