desire

The dreaming desires of life
I am looking for you again
after very many years
in the same old places;
and I have found you
... same old desires of life,
life’s dancing delight,
dancing around
a day
a night
like a butterfly
my indigo blue butterfly
flutter by
float and fly ….

And then
I let go of you
like the sand off my fist
like the stars in the dawn
like a dream in the morning wakefulness
I let go of you.

often the letting go is the greatest love we have...and the hardest as well....

Isn't letting go always the hardest part?!
Yet, it is often the greatest declaration of love that we can give...
Beautiful poem. I love it :)

This is so beautiful Moon like a butterfly desire is reborn again and again more beautiful with each rebirth you have to let it go to complete the cycle :) A superb poem like a dream in the morning wakefulness :)

C D,

Feeling desires and letting go for happiness to feel those again told so beautifully.

Take care

Ah, but that desire embraced in that remembering is the indigo we undergo when we flutter by, float and fly and flirt.

Until the next dreaming I will wait you.
