The Soul Calls. {Poem} ~ Jyoti Wind

The soul calls…

and you pack your bag

of unfulfilled dreams

for the next time.

Like the bittersweet strains

of the Pachelbel Canon,

you glance back,

memories of love given

and received

wash over you.

You realize what

it’s all been for…

Your epitaph is written

on the hearts of those

who loved you.

Bidding farewell,

with faith and trust

as your companions,

you pass through the door

that beckons,

free at last.

About Alex Myles

Alex has no intention to teach others on a formal basis for many years to come, instead, she is collecting qualifications along with life’s lessons. One day, when the time is right, Alex will set up a quaint studio, in a quirky crooked building where she will breathe and appreciate the slowness of those days as life is just way too busy right now! Reading and writing has always been one of Alex’s passions. Alex likes to consider herself as a free spirit rather than a commitment-phobe. Trying to live as aligned to a Buddhist lifestyle as is possible in this day and age, she just does not believe in "owning" anything or anyone. Based on the theory that we ‘cannot lose someone that was not ours to lose’ she flails through life finding joy and magic in the most unexpected places. Mother to a 21 year old daughter and three adorable pups, she appreciates that some of the best moments in life are the 6am forest walks watching the dogs run, play and interact with one another and with nature.
