Tranquility



Tranquility


Beyond darkness

within light

lies the key

to acceptance,

one with spirit.


Ego absentia

authentic truth

caress the soul,

awakening.

Tranquility is such a great thing to find. Try to hld onto it as long as you can. I am trying to find my own, but alasmy work is not allowing it. You can check if I have found mine yet by checking here.

Poetic and inspiring. The words float.

oh Jo, I so love the picture you chose to go with the words, and your poem again brings inspiration. It soothes the senses, relaxes the mind. Love it.

I love that picture! What a wonderful place. It must have been a great experience to be there and seeing the real thing. I can understand a place like that maybe being an inspiration for this poem.

The poem is short yet inspiring, it is the key to tranquility.

jakill, Thank you for visiting.

Ashley, than you for your kind words.

Icy, thanks and I'm glad you enjoyed them.

Shinade, thank you and the photo was taken while I was in Hong Kong.

bessye, at times I have tranquility then there are other times... The photo was taken while I was in Hong Kong at the Big Buddha on Lantau Island.

Unknown, I have found it at times. I wish it were permanent.

The Struggling Author, I think we all can find it if we allow ourselves. The difficult thing is holding on to it.

Dr. Lauren, thank you so much.

betchai, thank you again for visiting and commenting. Very much appreciated.

Ratty, It was a very inspirational visit. I took the photo at the Tian Tan Buddha (Big Buddha) on Lantau island in Hong Kong last year. It was the most inspiring place I have ever been.

rainfield, Thanks for seeing that.

I think that you and I are, perhaps, walking down the same road...or if not...we are both taking roads that are closely placed beside each other...and we can hold hands and talk! :) Being one with your spirit...tranquility...although I myself have gone on to superseding with spirit...going beyond the limitations that the body places...my spirit has no limitations. :)

This poem is sublime. I felt peaceful just reading it. It's also perfect for the pic you chose, which is also beautiful.

Have a great day!

I seldom know tranquility...it eludes me. When I do find it, at the most unusual times, I enjoy it totally.

The poem and the photo - both beautiful.

Ayie said...

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Charity, Ah, yes.

Jane, thank you. I took that photo in Hong Kong which is what partially inspired the poem.

Carmen, Thanks.

Ayie, I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
