Trust Fall



My  heart follows the  mountain  call 
 ancestors  speak on wooded land 
chanting hymns of praise ~ trust fall 

drums echo opening  a  portal wall 
 in the midst of autumn trees,  I stand
my hearts follows the mountain call

reflections of light in a crystal ball
 offering  you the palm of my  hand
chanting hymns of  praise ~  trust fall

memories of you, I  fondly  recall
sifting through matter, cosmic sand
my heart follows the mountain call

spiritual healing extends to all
my consciousness I wish to expand
chanting hymns of praise ~  trust fall

dream catchers,  standing tall
songs of a willow, I understand
my heart follows the mountain call
chanting hymns of praise ~ trust fall

under an orange & yellow canopy
mother earth catches me

  3. The rhythm of this is a delight to read.....and the form with its repeated lines, works so well with the poem's message. I love "My heart follows the mountain call."

  12. As the mountain calls and nature runs free, sometimes trusting and letting it sink in sure is the way to be.

  13. I love the many meanings of the term trust fall in this. Now... if only it would stop being so cold and I could enjoy dancing in the leaves properly without getting frostbite.

    1. Thanks there are def many interpretations for the term. I wrote this after a weekend trip to a mountain top.

  14. Your mastery of repetition in your poetry, is really superb. You never overdo that poetic device ... just enough to delicately weave your piece together while creating an evocative wisp of a refrain, that lingers.

  23. Just stopped by to say have a lovely day, True. Your pros are so delicate. I always have this mental image when I read it of a slender hand, writing verse with a quill.

  24. Lovely words, Trudessa! I enjoy your poetry; well perhaps "am moved" by your poetry is more accurate; and I don't get by your blog nearly enough. The desert calls to me the way the mountains call to you. Have a great week!
