The Essence

Look around.

What do you see?

I see beauty.

I see life.

I see love

in gold sparks, floating on the late summer breeze.

Autumn slowly makes its descent.

I can smell the sun

bouncing off the trees.

Leaves cheering in their gleeful dance.

The day is new; Clean slate.

I feel empty,

yet filled with the warmth

of the seasons passion.

She urges me to hold on.

“Hold your head up.”

“Brace the winds.”

“Keep moving forward.”

I do not feel stress

as I rest with each breath.

Exhale.

Here comes the breeze again.

A cosmic dance.

I float in the winds ripples;

Make waves with every movement,

Every thought,

Every feeling.

I’m in love with a dream;

An essence.

A reflection shown through a slivered mirror;

Depths unseen and unknown.

The wind stills again and the ripples cease.

Through the puddle of our reality-

a glimpse.

I’m alive.
