Poem Commentary

Upon waking, had to get this one down fast.

Soul Riding

 

Close your eyes and take a trip

of super fantasy.

While your body rests,

your mind slips

on the outer realms of the galaxy.

 

We all have the gift and are eternally connected.

Come see what is real, and be resurrected.

 

You don’t need money or a car.

It takes no time and you really go far.

 

Riding waves of divine energy,

past shooting stars in complete synergy.

 

Beyond time, schedule and space,

never feeling out of place.

 

While physicality is tough,

walk around your mind, forget life’s stuff.

 

Make outerspace your favorite place.

Release time and dance in heaven’s grace.

 

Angels meet you all around.

Upon their harps, you’ll travel sound.

 

You can choose your destination

or let nature take you on vacation.

 

Just imagine where you’ll go,

just before you sleep, you'll know.

 

Then if other spheres appear,

discover them as well, my dear.

 

Realize exquisite sensuality.

Breath in, not air, but a new reality.

 

Worlds you never recognized before,

just now, I’m showing you the door.

 

There is no need to be afraid

for in your bed, your body lays.

 

Your soul will soar to find out more,

waking, wishing to explore.

 

A flood of futures and memories past

from ancient ages, potentials cast.

 

We were meant to encounter the skies,

the vault that lies behind our eyes.

 

So lose the anchor and experience the ride.

The one your mind has stored inside.

 

-M. Jacobs

Yes this one is like a meditation or what it feels like to get into a dream state just before sleep and take a ride around the galaxy, if you will. Thanks for your input. TY

We were meant to encounter the skies, the vault that lies behind our eyes. This stanza in particular stands out to me. The inner workings of the mind and the eternal scope of imagination, once free of the bonds of humanistic creation of ârealityâ, can soar to the greatest heights of creational imagery. âIs life but a dream within a dreamâ, Poe wrote in his poem âA Dream Within A Dream,â and oft life is such. An enjoyable read.

Thanks for pointing out that line and your interesting and supportive perception of "Soul Riding". I really appreciate your awareness and mention of Poe,, He's one of my favorites.

A subject near and dear to my heart! I have one similar in theme, yet very different in structure to this one called Astral. This is a great piece... love the journey :)

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
