Another type of "Zen Koan"

I feel the changes
The coolness
Damp breezes
Flowing in waves
The future holds us
As does the now
As yesterday is let go

There in the distance
We feel the winters touch
Yet what's this I hear
Across the mountains
Whispered by the streams.
Even a sailing leaf
I see it touch your hand.

We shall look with eyes
Eyes that breath of love
To hold us in our now
That old sun is splintered
The mountains prismatic
Colours shed into the valleys
In the now our feelings gather.

Thoughts held and tears shown
As love drops that scatter
Pure thoughts of now
That inner plain of forever
Where we dwell together
Is this a reality or dream
Do we travel on unseen.

As we take no Baggage.
Our journeys end is seen
Slowed as if to make us feel.
What should we feel?
It is the question we ask
Let us not dwell here
On such things as why.

We have a beautiful journey
Just you and I, feel its touch
Oh and those we know.
That have gone before
Or those we travel with
It matters not time is nought.
We will gather together.

In a beautiful now
Colours blend in unison
with our souls entwined
Each to their own thoughts
Where awareness is acute
That reminds us again.
Those mountain heights
The stream that babbles
Our own eternity claimed
It is ours yours and mine.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
As a note to Our Lady of Telemark who travels this journey with us here
Editing stage: 


most deep and universal thought of the connection of us all.
I was truly moved by this write. there is a lot to be said of life and it's toil in our relationship with it and us.

just popping in to window shop poetry I might enjoy!



It is always a pleasure to have you visit, glad the understanding is as the write.
I look forward to a read of your pieces will keep a look out.
Yours as always, Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..
