Separate Together

Our souls are not in our bodies at night. In dreams they’re thrilled to roam free.

So that passionate barnburner you had last week was a “la Petite Morte” for a woman in Nice.

Should are bigger than our bodies so they are felt but felt loosely as we move through space.

Though you have to be attuned to your own body to feel your souls hovering around you in place.

Lying still & quiet you can feel the warmth all about grazing your skin.

Lying still & quiet you can tell indubitably that the presence is closer to you than kin.

If you’re really good you can jump & feel it ricochet back to you.

And yes, at night, I promise you the you soul leave you & one becomes two.

The soul is expansive enough to visit the moon within the space of a evening.

It’s adventures related upon return that we disregard as dreaming.

I see the world through a Painter’s eyes and process it with a Poet's Heart....it's quite a harsh place for the soul. It scratches and wears your true self down, at times, but the Beauty is Addictive. I feel for everyone I encounter. Everyone I encounter is a teacher if I'll let them be. I Empathize with everyone I talk to & I Think about Everything-LEVi
