I occupy the space inside a sweet bubble. Barely hearing a whisper Travelling through the parallel universe Trying to find value in all I see and hear The impact on my mind is symbolic at best. I do not have to feign interest. I feel like an initiate. Hoping my mind has become a sponge. When I break free from my bubble To make use of all I have seen and heard. To move, to change, to lead my best life… ©AnitaDawes2023 mindlovemiserymeagerie.com
Serenity… #The SundayWhirl ~ Wordle 595

I see her face, familiar yet unknown to me. Her voice, a whisper, gentle sighs I stand on a timeless place, I feel my mind quiver. leaping over new thoughts The killing fields far behind me I see a halo above each fallen soul A twig from the Judas tree caught in my clothing. I turn a page in my bible, my mind numb As I walk towards a low lying cloud I feel serene, as the blanket of white covers me, taking me home… ©AnitaDawes2023
Long Shadows… #Poetry
A Whisper… #Poetry
No More than a Whisper… #Poetry
I awoke after nine days in Heaven
Screaming, where is my body
I am no more than a whisper, a puff of smoke
Is no one here to answer me?
My voice, sailing back to ears I cannot feel
Yet the sound penetrated
the part of me that was mind
What dark trick is this?
A new sound entered, bells ringing
Reminding me of Sunday mornings
Walking to church my vision returned
Letting me see the road I stood on
A church in the near distance
People entering the large arched doors
There, I hoped to receive some answers
I couldn’t tell if I walked or floated
Once inside I felt temper mixed with despair
I stood alone in my smoky form
Where had they gone?
Is the church a gateway to another realm?
If so, why have I been left standing here?
I waited until I heard the church bells rind again
Finding myself outside
The street empty, yet familiar
Walking towards the house I grew up in
I was swept up by the family
My family, rushing out to answer the call to prayer
Sat in the pew between my father and mother
My sister and younger brother on the outer edge
Ready to drop our tithe into the waiting plate
With the clang of coin against brass
The smoke holding my body vanished
Had my sins been paid for by the love of family?
