Transmutation, Shifting Sands and Perspective

The prolonged detour through the shadows

has robbed me of all but my bloody-minded conviction

of my Higher Good.

Trampling my trusting nature into the mire;

Sullying my bare canvas with inferior paint

but now relegated to the myths that will one day

claim to speak for who I was.

(And get it wrong of course)


 Changed, changed in total am I now;

Personality intact but everything else

cast into the universal pool of transmutation.

Stirred up as always, yes, fired with the passion

 to realise the new beginning of a chapter

once thought dead and buried.... but

resurrected with rekindled fire.

I will honour myself now.
A long overdue accolade...

How do you get out of a quicksand?

Lay yourself prostrate.....

What a heartfelt poem you've woven. You seemed to have weathered the stormy waters in this piece and found sanctuary in your own strength and belief. Like the way you tracked the final words like footprints.

Regards , Michael

The trick for me is how far can I sink before I want to claw my way out.  I really like the freshness in this poem, how you turned the quicksand into a positive.

We humans are always evolving...although few actually recognize it for what it is. Very nice work Ali!

Dear Sister of the Light....As you are slipping, take my hand, I am here.  Reach for the Light to envelope you with Love, and know that you can rise above and float upon the ethers....Changes are not only happening to the Earth Mother, but to those whom are aware....Then, along with your totem, you will not only be safe, but you will lead.....
Namaste, Margaret.....

How true this is...almost a daily mantra for me.  With each new day there is a change...slight or profound.  As we age we gather strength and wisdom to move ourselves out of the quicksand.  We realize that life is too short ... so we go with the flow and set ourselves free.  Lovely write Namaste  Loretta

You will get there Alison, and I have taken off my socks and shoes and trousers and armed myself with a long pole. Iwill stand here up to my thichs in mire until you grab the other end of the pole :-)
