dVerse Entwin(n)ed Twin Within


Twin Within

It is said we all have a twin
my spirit twin lives within
one twin lives in the human world
tethered to the  ground
wakes up with  the sunrise
groggily hits snooze as the alarm sounds
just to catch a few more minutes
before viewing the morning news
fights the traffic, morning commute
clawing through the daily strife
confined to the working grind
9 to 5 trying to get it right

the other twin, lives in a spiritual world
free to fly the heavens
restless, like the wind
her soul  arises in moonlight
searching for the meaning of life
flying on the wings of a red tailed hawk
taking in the peripheral view
spirit guide leads her to the valley
her soul mate waits on the river's edge
dark features, piercing eyes
calling her name, she sighs
two joined as one
soaring in paradise


  1. A very interesting dichotomy here and one that readers can relate to - you pick out salient details to make it all quite vivid. Thanks so much. K.

    1. Thank you for the prompt and your comment is appreciated.

  2. Wonderful ... and like minds in terms of a twin within... but I like your internal twin a lot better. :-)

    1. Good Morning,

      Thanks for the comments and we did have the same internal twin theme going on for this prompt.

  3. I can relate very well ~ Like the contrast between the stanzas ~ We all have to work between those two worlds ~

    1. Grace,

      Thank you for the read and the reply. I agree it is hard to find balance between the two worlds.

  4. rather like the end...finding one another by the river...and depending on how you look at it, it could be the physical self and spiritual self now learning how to live together....

    1. Good Morning Brian,

      Thanks for dropping in for a visit. I always enjoy reading your comments.

      Hope your weekend is going well..

  5. Stuck at the 9 to 5
    Never gonna get out alive
    Need to rob that bank
    Give your inner twin a yank
    She'll float in and float out
    Then the heist no one will know about
    We can take the money and run
    Whalla, Bora Bora under the sun haha

    1. hmmm..let me understand
      you now have a new plan
      to get us to the sands
      of bora bora beach
      where we can work on
      our tans..and share
      some exotic drinks..
      as we catch 40 winks
      my twin says this is
      a no go..need to come
      up with an honest plan
      for the dough...
      then away we can go
      run under the sun
      until the day is done.. (hahaha)

      thanks for the are too funny

    2. haha your twin is just no fun
      Honest will never get us to such a sun

  6. yes - i think that's true - there are both and they need each other and we need both of them as well to be able to connect the dimensions..

    1. Good Morning,

      Thank you for the comment and I agree we do need "both" to be connective.

  7. I like this, really like this. My other twin lives in a dream world rather than a spirit world. Her imagination runs wild and I happily join her there...

    Anna :o]

    1. Hello,

      I like what you said about the dream world. I was actually going to say "Dream" world first but, then changed to "spiritual" world. I think we first must, enter the dream world as that is where our spirit can take flight. I agree I will always join my twin in the dream world for here holds the keys to the human world. Thank you so much for a lovely comment.

  8. Divided yet entwined finally together. Very beautiful!

    1. Akila,

      Thank you for taking the time to visit and the lovely comment. It is always nice to see you here and to visit you there. Have a good day!

  9. One foot in the spiritual realm, one foot in the world of the flesh...creative to refer to it as twins...nice work!

    1. Hello,

      Thank you for reading my work and taking the time to leave a comment. It is appreciated. How a wonderful Tuesday!
