POETRY BY SHIRL A. STEWARD

FLIGHT OF MY SOUL


In my soul I feel free,
as light as the breeze that carries me.
Traveling without the limits of mind
I compose magnificent journeys
throughout space and time.
Free without care of worldly affair,
Translucent like clouds flowing in air,
Enlightened through love,
perfectly peaceful in all that I see
below and above,
passing through objects
perceiving the world as if part of the sphere
as if nothing is real, in the planet Earth near,
Beauty abounds and surrounds
as I observe my limitless bounds.
For now I can fly in free flight
wherever I like
throughout sky, land or sea
and into farthest galaxies.
Me, just me, without a feeling of need.
It is all mine to take in my ease.
A bird on a wing could not be as free,
in an instant I am where I wish to be.
Come fly with me.
I'll show you the treasures
I chanced to see.
