    prelude to bliss

    have you felt the moment settle
    until time is standing still
    the air so thick and heavy
    that you cannot breathe your fill
    the silence that surrounds you
    and makes everything go still
    the prickly goosebumps rising
    as though you'd caught a chill
    when really what has happened
    is your heart began to thrill

    angry to be so abused
    and sad it's come to this
    but know as you've known nothing else
    this thing you'll never miss
    your fingers sparking sunshine
    on the lip of your abyss
    this magic moment lingers on
    like a slow and skillful kiss
    confirming that you've been set free
    to revel in your bliss

    Hey, wow! I loved "Prelude to Bliss". It had my full attention. I had to sit here and read it twice. Really Great.

    Standing at the threshold of the abyss, leaving one behind, entering another, standing between two worlds, tranquillity exists... Welcome to the other side...

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

    Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
