The Missing Link

I see you there,

open to possibilities,

embracing with wild abandon

whatever Destiny would bring your way this day,

courage marking your  alabaster brow.

I am curious.

I lean in,

seeking the answer in your lines,

connecting your dots to determine

the sum of your bravado.

Too close, I am seared by your breathy dust.

I know it clings to my skin

but I let it be;

perhaps your pollen

will meld and morph my DNA,

alter my ego,

help me to forge

that missing link between

what I am

and what I was born to be…

  1. This one really speaks to me today…I am going to take a bold step that I believe the Lord wants me to do. Thy will be done! May I be powdered with the pollen of the Spirit… ~ Wendy

    This is Great, Melody–I love that it is “courage” which marks the brow, as usually we think of worry or some other negative connotation. Great job–God bless you–love, Caddo

      I’m so glad you caught that – words hold ideas in the balance, don’t they? Sometimes you wonder if what you wrote communicates what you were thinking at the time or not.

    Thought provoking verse… I am…therefore I be… nothing more and nothing less… the moment is all I have been given… I am content.

  4. You sure know how to converse with nature 🙂
