more than just 2 lines

I got a compliment on the 2 line poem i posted, which didn’t make sense until i looked at the page. I had put in 2 complete poems and then it crashed. When i started it back up the poems were still there so i hurriedly published and lo and behold 2 lines. Second times the charm….

Magic

I believe in magic and god and all good things

I believe in the power of the soul

To touch the mindlike basis of material reality

And so become the whole

I believe in angels and fairies and listening to canaries

When they say the mine’s gonna blow

Watching for signs and divining designs

And knowing which way to go

############

I believe that the universe exists

For i have seen and heard parts of it

I have tasted of the summer fruit

And smelled the coming rain

Felt the gentle breeze

As it rolled across the plain

Not first in nobodies’ heart

We walk this world alone

Like a single set of polar bear tracks

Covered by the blowing snow

We are destined to live out our lives

And then it is our lot to die

Never knowing what will be our fate

When we leave this world of lies

But i believe that i am body, soul and spirit

For i have lived and loved and felt the One

I have felt the power of god

And danced with a spirit

Felt my soul leave my body

To touch someone near it

Not first in nobodies’ heart

We walk this world alone

Like a single set of polar bear tracks

Covered by the blowing snow

We are thinking machines

But so much more

We carry the spark of the divine

And our souls can live for all eternity

Look to your dreams for the sign

    I was checking to make sure the site was still up and I noticed a missing half line so i changed it in edit. I guess third time really is the charm.

    Mike! What a refreshing poem. Thanks for sharing. I can very much imagine you reciting it. I’m glad I visited your blog – it always makes me feel better. “felt my soul leave my body to touch someone near it” :o)
