How Does It Feel? by Prabha

How Does It Feel?

What was it like to feel this, for once?
To know everything you felt was reciprocated?
Words and energy,
Your words truly heard, spirit connected,
Deeply felt and found?

Sharing so safe, resonation met with your satisfaction
Having someone finally, on exactly the same page and line
If anyone saw the script they would have thought this is the second take
They know the lines so well now
Echoing your love in every scene

Was it to truly accept it in your mind?
Did you find you could balance your mind and spirit
With my naivety and love?
Stepping back and forth as you pleased
Watching conceitedly, enjoying my compassion and patience
Plundering everything we both held dear

Did you really fight hard enough with your mind and spirit?
Was watching me burn within my own fire more exhilarating?
How does it feel to know you are so very deserving of all of this?

Poetics describes a whole range of engagements with life that are storied, reflective and filled with imagination and inspiration, as opposed to analysis in the strict sense. When science rules, the magic fades. When thinking ascends the throne, the soul may atrophy. Yet poetics is not irrational – it is a take which reaches into a different aspect of our humanity – one where we can celebrate that which moves us, not dwell on what limits us. Expect surprises. One or many may lead. None or a few may follow and then decide to take the lead. This is a fluidity to break the mould of rigidity. Join us on this journey. Let us hold hands boldly and join voices transformatively. Prabha will be leading us. Feel free to join us.
