When the heart turns soft and beholds


Like traffic, the busy fumes

of a clogged heart do not

seek solace.

The many earthly loves do not help,

The world in all it offers is


and it fills none; it



But like key into lock, some

Great Wind,

strange and compelling, strikes you

into a known whirlwind,

strong and solid;

a phenomenon

of epiphany

and it is realised!

It is felt from your depths,


This is what the beginning was.

This is what it always will be.

  1. Oh lovely! You have such strong emotional effect. The images are not clear, like seen through mist…or very delicate wafer thin paper…but the impact is like breathing cool, spring, air. Very nice.

      A really insightful comment 🙂 Yes, I read my poem over again a couple of times and you’re right, it does have that faint, misty effect. Thanks for stopping by, Kolembo!

  2. Very beautiful spiritual poem. I love the image of the Holy Spirit as wind. You are so wise for being so young. Blessings.
