Open Spaces

Remove the shards

Of shattered glass

From your arteries

The heavy blanket of

Hot sweaty

Shame from your

Rounded shoulders

The shackles of

Past betrayals

From

Your ankles.

Find your heart in

The empty, the full

Deep in desire.

Flow free this love

Like cascading waterfalls

Into all the broken open

Spaces of your soul.

The creases, bumps

Lumps of your head.

The lines, wrinkles,

Crepe paper of your skin.

Fill all the tributaries

Of veins with

Kindness,

Tenderness.

Pour into

Soft eyes

Aching, yearning,

Searching for this

Thirst to be quenched.

Rush like a tidal

Wave, a storm

Surge your

Passion to all.

.◆

Soak into your bones

Saturated, drenched

This flood that

Spills

Over.

Who do you want

To be in the open spaces?

Who will be there

When you arrive?

This

Luscious

Ocean of

Liberation.

  1. I don’t know if today people always attached to a cell phone find time to enjoy the emotions that a poem can convey.
    Poetry plays a central role in allowing human beings to regain their spiritual and creative dimension. A poem is not invented because it comes from the soul. We all feel the need to express our feelings and some decide to start writing words that at first glance seem to make no sense but actually help to make us think, to make us think and imagine.

    • Thank you for these insightful and meaningful reflections about the importance of poetry in our lives, Aldo, especially during a time of cell phones, I Pads, lap tops, keyboards. I agree completely that poetry speaks to something essential in the human spirit. The experience of writing and reading poems can open places inside of us that an essay may not be able to go.
