place

here it is
place
placing itself first in my mind
a solitary step
stepping stones beneath a Tuscan sky
and i a postulate proposing
to believe in a destiny, a coming together
of an ever-after bonded by belief
and prayer, by invocation, a meditation
mediating a renaissance of virtue
in all seasons held as tenant
in seed or in sacrifice

  6. Such an eloquent summing up of a feeling that normally goes beyond, under, around our ability to speak it. Beautiful, lyrical, meaningful.

  8. "...as tenant in seed or in sacrifice."

    That made the breath catch in my throat. Well played, m'lady.

  9. We are all, in some ways, postulates 'proposing to believe in a destiny' - though most would wish to be seed rather than sacrifice. Though there is a glory in both, isn't there?

  10. bkm~
    with so few words you capture what could be an entire life philosophy, and push the reader to wonder of their own. Diction is impeccable. Flow is soothing. Nice write.

  11. Barbara,
    Words written to carry the body and spirit away, to another place. Tuscany is indeed a beautiful destination.
