are you there?


reach for me

out beyond perception

in a field of generosity

where old souls and new souls

gather together, amongst

threads of commonality 

are you there?

i’ll wait for you

with a knowing heart

are you there?

extraneous moments cloud my view

perched on righteous indignation

are you there?

whispers of hope infiltrate the air

like oxygen to a breathless being

ahh – you are there

in the midst

of that which can’t be seen,

only grasped, felt, then

released into the universe

on wings of enlightenment

    1. It is never too late to share kind words, Jen. And now it is I who is late in responding…just got back from a two week trip to Maryland. Thanks so much! I enjoyed this write! ❤ ~Karen~

      1. Thanks sweetheart, hope you had a lovely time. How nice it is when we enjoy what we write. Sometimes we put it out there with doubts..well I do, but every now and then I fist punch the air being a little bit proud of myself 🙂 ❤ x

  5. Wow, Ms Karen, this one grabbed me. Ahh, so beautifully done. Also, your photograph releases lots of lovely sunshine. ❤

    1. Aww- I thank you abundantly! The poem kinda sprang from my heart in the same manner that I’d like to frolic through that beautiful field. Standing in the sunshine with you, my dear! ❤ ~Karen~

      1. Ahh Ms Karen, You are so very welcome!!! Your poem indeed sounds amazingly free. Plus, I love the idea of catching rays of gorgeous sun in a meadow!! I’m thinking Fun, Fun, Fun!!! Many Blessings 😄😄

  6. This is lovely, Karen. Your words and the photo…perfect!

    1. Thank you, Jill! I’m glad you enjoyed it. I love sunflowers and lavender! 🙂 ~Karen~

  7. Beautiful poem, Karen! Love the last line “on wings of enlightenment”.

    1. Many thanks, Amy! Wouldn’t it be lovely if we could sprout wings of enlightenment when needed? 🙂 ~Karen~

  8. Gorgeous! Where is that field? I want to go there!

    1. Thanks! Indeed, Patti …when you find it let me know – I’ll meet you there. 🙂 ~Karen~

  9. I like the way you have the reaching and searching, along with the clouds that can block the connections. The ‘refrain’ of “Are you there?” really is touching and I love this so much, Karen!

    1. Thanks so much, Robin! I so appreciate your kind and thoughtful words. Yes, I felt the poem would be lacking without the refrain of “Are you there?” It was an easy write – like that of frolicking through the beautiful field. hugs ~Karen~

      1. You are lucky that this is easy, but that is a true sign of your ability to reach others, through your writings. Karen, that you find ‘easy’ and like ‘frolicking’ is sometimes very time-consuming and arduous to others! I am amazed at this, because you show symbolism and meaning in these ‘brief strokes’ of genius! Like a fine painter…

  10. Beautiful photograph, beautiful poem. Each enhances the other. I remember fields of sunflowers in Austria in which one could easily get lost.

    1. Thank you so very much! This was a fun write for me. Lucky you for having lived in Austria – what a beautiful place! Be well. ~Karen~

  11. Beautiful. I love this poem. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much,Tammy! Sorry for the delay in responding – been away handling construction emergencies for a bit. Be well. ~Karen~

      1. You’re quite welcome. No worries about how long it takes to respond. We all have other things besides this blog, going on in our lives. I hope you’re doing “well.” Once I get caught up here on my blog responding to everyone I’ll be over to your blog to see what you’re up to. I was away for awhile, myself, so I have a lot of catching up to do. Take care. I hope all is well in your world.
        Peace out,
