    a deeeeep connection
    spiritual affection
    that supercedes lifetimes
    makes clocks unwind
    in a new dawn
    spawned from eternal coagulation
    captivating sensations
    drawn upon a magic kissably close
    most often regarded without question
    that section not quite overlooked
    but booked to capacity
    mapped out sensationally by wanton wizards
    listing blizzards of passion
    cupped in fashionable wordsong
    in flight for a long journey
    turning upon moons left junction
    functioning as a chance for moments captured
    after chase turns into catch
    the next batch more tasty than the first
    no need to rehearse the soft ending
    hearts bending around conga beats
    tapping air with no surface
    serving purposes not yet realized
    while closed eyes whisper open prayers
    daring anything to separate this union
    soon to be a catalyst for more reservations
    building nations of soulseekers
    paying homage to forgotten teachers
    telling truths of my familiar
    circling a delirium of touch
    yes i too like this much
    as such in desire of that deeeeep connection
    spiritual affection
    no longer will it roam
    to the east backwards
    floating with that flow
    tracing a path that leads me home...

    Wow.....

    I don't know what is going on this morning, but I am being treated to one awesome peace after another. This one is nothing less than captivating. I actually had to stop and regroup halfway through this. A truly ethereal experience. I'm honored to be the first to read this. So thankful we crossed paths this a.m.

    I see and hear you!!!!

    no doubt you speak my language -eventhough you do it more respectfully and your approach is drenched in the ink salivation of penmanship, no doubt! You have touched my concious nerve and have identified yourself as one with understanding. Holla.

    Wow. Your imagery is beautiful and SO powerful! The dynamic energy of this piece reached out and grabbed me, pulled me in. I had to stay for a while and let it wash over me like a warm, healing bath. You're gifted Derrick, and the gentle strength of your spirit shines through in this poem like the North Star. Shine on, my dear brother, and continue to bless us with your words.

    DJ.


    sometimes when i read a spectacular piece that
    moves me... i'm not quite sure what to say.
    that's what happened today. & although it's
    a foreign thing for me... i am speech-less. :)
    & i know it's not intentional... you just do what
    you do!! :wink:

    :heart:
    Elayne.
