Unbidden


                                 You who have been absent from me
                                 For so long

                                 You come to me now
                                 Electricity races beneath my skin

                                 The refiner's fire once more consumes me
                                 Unbidden

I don't recall you doing poetry on here before. I loved it. On a side note, who ever did that ink was very talented. All the lines are straight and the same size.

"Electricity races beneath my skin" such lively longing...

DEZMOND said...

what's the inspiration for this one, Debs?

Jeanne said...

Very nice! I know how it feels to once more feel the divine return when there has been an absence. "called or not called, the god will be there" Delphi Oracle
On a side note - thinking about getting some ink?

Ooh how funny! At first I thought you were blogging about Biden...as in VP...hahaha. Just got up too early.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Hi Dezzy -- Jeanne has nailed it! This poem is about spirituality. Yeah, okay, and some sex too.

Hi Jeanne -- No, still not thinking about getting inked!

Vanessa Morgan said...

Any other secret talents? :-)

"Electricity races beneath my skin" What a great line! There is a profound poet in you.

I'm glad someone figured it out because I was all like, "Duh..."

Very poetic and figurative. Who are you reaching out to? Have a great weekend. Cheers!!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Hi Bobbybegood1 -- In my experience, it is the Divine who reaches out and calls our name, not vice versa. All we have to do is wise up and be open enough to hear and understand. Speaking as a dense person, though, I have found that's not always an easy thing to accomplish.

I liked this Debra. We do have to learn to be open and vulnerable enough to hear and see what is coming towards us.

Willow said...

Hey Debra ;o) I just wrote you a long comment and it went away? I will start again ;o)
Your poem is very powerful! I love it! You are very talented!
I got a surprise phone call today, from our friend, "Robin". We started talking about you! She misses blogging so much. Robin didn't realize HRH passed away. She felt so bad! I told her not to worry, because you know, she is going through a lot right now with her hubby! She sends you lots of love!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Hi Magic Love Crow -- Oh, aren't you two sweeties? Hugs to both you and Robin!

Francesca Edesia said...

Wow, I didn't know you're also a poet. I studied poetry but can't write any at all! Brava!

That is beautiful. I love a good, simple poem that gets right to the point. In such an eloquent way.

Dear Debra,

This, my friend, was an electronic tonic.

I also wish to thank you for your very kind, thoughtful comment on my site.

In kindness,

Gary

Wow. You lit a stick of dynamite in so few words. It's very evocative, sexy even.
