The Passage




Tonight I hear a distant voice
a murmur drawing near
a candlelight that burns o'er head
a lightness looming clear

A way, a path, a stepping stone
a soft surrendering sound
a warming glow, a knowing nod
a mystery's meaning found

Our chosen voices edify,
illumine and uphold
ethereal messengers gliding by
their passing stories told

The spirit, searching, scans the skies
with not an earthly word
no physical missive to impart
no spoken whispers heard

Instead, a vibrant, crystal song
enshrouds with healing verse
harmonious spirit, body and mind
a gift, some say, a curse

A source of light, a passage known
uplifting garnet guide
a soothing heav'nly lullaby
awake on the other side



Dear LadyClaire

I haven't seen anything of yours that isn't wonderfully written and this certainly is no exception.  Enjoyed.

Not sure what it is...but this stanza really sticks out to me.  Well done!

Mike...thank you, so glad you enjoyed it.

Sally...thank you. I wrote this piece while reflecting on a conversation I'd had with a colleague about the communication between our world and those who've passed on to the next. Does that help?


Bbuzz...thank you, and not to worry.

Denise...the praise of a fellow poet is an honor, indeed. Thank you sincerely.

I agree with Liz. This should be a beautiful song. It's so lyrical amd melodious. It sings to the spirit. Love it!
