This Joyful Being

As the trance escalates, I find I crave
palisades, recall climbing high to brave
the ancient fear of falling. On the ledge
imbibe the crystal clarity. The edge

an opening that breaks the spell. Step wise
and carefully among the stones, for eyes
deceive. It is imperative to breathe
and feel with senses that are commonly

asleep. My memories catch, hold. I’m deep
and break the spell. Distractions cannot keep
me with their straw man fallacies. I’m free
changing perspective, joyful sovereignty.

Inspired by: Imbibe, Palisade, Crave, Escalate and vivid memories of hikes in New Jersey.

  1. Wonderful Victoria. My favourite lines “Step wise
    and carefully among the stones, for eyes
    deceive. It is imperative to breathe
    and feel with senses”
    The photo was timely as I just read another contribution about the Palisades Interstate Park in New Jersey in another post so now I know what that is.
