Eyes Closed

Written for:  Carpe Diem #927, synesthesia

Hamish on synesthesia

Synesthesia is a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.

resonating drums
the five saints … impressive beauty
spirit world opens

whispering leaves
telling all wisdom of the steppes –
cry of an eagle

And a cascading haiku:

lying down on my back
watching the deep blue night sky –
feeling my spirit

feeling my spirit
wishing to be free forever
like an eagle

like an eagle
free and high in the blue sky
my Inner Path

Here is my attempt:

eyes closed, listening to
sound of the breath, in and out
shoulders melting warmth


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
