Poem – “Spheres”

SPHERES

 

The spheres shifted-

it was about a gift,

karmic debt?

angelic request?

wrapped in earthly love

but at the core a glove

of enlightenment

of opening

from the universe to you

I just carried it-

buried it… … …

I was the messenger

talking the only language you understood-

I leave the shroud of earthly love

on the ground behind me,

by finding a way

I discovered so much more

more  than you who hold tight to everything, will ever know-

 

my spheres have shifted

I have been lifted. 

 

 

 Note, From Wikipedia

Shroud usually refers to an item, such as a cloth, that covers or protects some other object. The term is most often used in reference to burial sheets, winding-cloths or winding-sheets, such as the famous Shroud of Turin or Tachrichim (burial shrouds) that Jews are dressed in for burial. Traditionally, burial shrouds are made of white cotton, wool or linen, though any material can be used so long as it is made of natural fibre.
