NULLA NEBULA




It’s when you turn up
that time comes to a halt

that space kind of grows

that my heart beats
like a runaway horse.

It’s when you turn up
that any sign of mist

either white or grey
flies away.

It’s my ears
as they  listen to your voice
it’s all my being
as it witnesses your presence...

It’s then that...
 I realize
all that peace
for you and me
 is deserved.

  5. Whoever never
    has felt like this--
    that one has not
    experienced
    Loving...being loved.
    AMEN
    PEACE!

    Whoever can
    not write like this
    has to sit back
    and enjoy, for
    How GOOD it is!

  7. You describe peace and love together so beautifully! Time stops, space expands and so on. It has never been so clear that a pause is involved and in that pause they are one.

  11. Great sense of a life that melts when merged with the loved one, yet still retains its own hills and valleys, and shares its peace. Lovely, Dulce. The first stanza esp is just magical.

  17. I first read your opening as "it's when you turn up (your head ... looking at the sky) that time comes to a halt" ... As in daydreaming or skywatching.

    Love that Burton-esque image ... the heart hanging upside-down in the tree.
