    ...of a pilgrimage to the birthplace of an epiphany~


    some memories need no
    special water to stay alive
    ..so deeply imbedded in
    the stuff of the heart...
    as long as there's a
    rhythm, a pulse,
    they thrive

    and most would
    agree, touching a
    moment that has passed isn't
    possible because

    "we'll never be THIS way, again"

    but I'm a witness

    living~breathing,
    LIFE changing memories
    just have no end

    the body, present in the PLACE of miracles
    transports the mind ~ spirit to the
    beauty of the past

    it's the equation of space~ time~ persons~ place
    and that awesome 'thing'
    we need to make it last

    we can go back
    re-trace the uncharted path
    that led us to the fountain

    a spiritual journey
    an intimate ceremony
    where we viewed paradise
    from the peaks of the mountain

    some memories are made
    for our future need to re-visit
    for healing, and re-birth

    come again, with me
    let's touch that place
    where time stood still on earth

    you're amazing
    now you know i don't know where you were
    exactly
    when writing this peace

    but let me tell you where it took me

    remember my peace ... oh dear God ... well ...
    you took me there ... showing me that God has already answered my prayer
    by giving me memories rich and deep
    forever with me ... mine to keep

    thank you for this Miss A!

    :heart:

    You sure have some grand skillz with the use of metaphors.
    This is so key to writing into the souls of others.

    I felt you all the way on this one.

    Go on girl...go on.

    sis

    May we all be so blessed to know/experience an awakening that brings with it special persons, places, and "the awesome thing...to make it last"....

    It sounds like love was the sum of this "equation". Love, pure and true.

    I'm enjoying reading you today. :)
