Where Creation Finally Breathes


The flow
is so illusive.
To scrunch my eyes
and push it from my pores
is to bruise my skin
searching.

Iíve tried humming
a mantra to the muse
only to find
silly past fragments
that kiss the sound
into a sigh.

Donít expect to hear
it knocking with thought
in delicious anticipation,
the flow is so gentle
it waits for open doors.

You must come around behind it
without appearing to be looking,
and then walk with it,
no walls
no time
   no dimension
only this sweet movement
that comes from a place
that weeps with vision.

It is the space
where dear freedom
takes its first step
and creation finally breathes.

So that's what I have been doing wrong, I have to sneak up behind it and act like I don't care! Okay, Maybe that will work, I'll give it a try. Soon I will be flooding this place with poetry!  

Great poem, Martie!

Denise
