Rem Resurgence…


I waken from sleep disorientated,

Still clinging to that place where that other “me” goes

When not wearing the now tired and past its’ “best before” date, body…

The one I was given when my soul/spirit had need to manifest,

And “I” found myself trying it on for size and comfort.

It was obviously a good fit as “I” am walking around with it still!

Over these earth years its’ size has fluctuated enormously,

Outer rendering showing signs of deterioration now

And more seriously, signs of cracking are beginning to appear!

Hopefully there will not be any need for underpinning in the near future!

But where do “I” go when my body sleeps and my mind shuts down?

My lungs rise and fall, my heart beats and pumps of its’ own accord,

All operating systems finely tuned and working in unison!

A veritable miracle, if ever “I” saw one…!

Where does my ‘mind’ go to when this body of intricate levers and pulleys, slumbers?

Perhaps it checks into some central ethereal recharging station

Where batteries are topped up and the entire system rebooted?

Where necessary maintenance is carried out during this daily pit-stop!

Where this body’s straightjacket poses no more restrictions of this world.

Where for a little while the “I” can experience the freedom of, as yet, unknown realms,

Where just being is so so simple and refreshingly unrestrained…

Complications only recommence when we climb into our chosen/ given bodies once again,

Our souls, having been catapulted into the ether, return like a boomerang, bang on cue,

And we know we have another earth day to live, to love, to be human once again…

  2. Hey, welcome back from your “central ethereal recharging station”! Your “system” has indeed been “rebooted” to come up with such a fine piece this morning! Well done, Krys, you’ve returned to WP “like a boomerang”!

    Love your closing line, too!

    1. Lol…your encouraging comments made me chuckle! Thank you so much…glad you enjoyed it…this one took form very quickly and easily. Strange how some seem to flow naturally and others get stuck…lots of criteria influencing the creative flow, methinks! You are too kind, your praise is most welcomely and gratefully accepted…Best regards and a good night to you and yours across the ether… πŸ™‚

  3. Dear Krystina, I am on vacation right now and my blog is taking a rest. I am happy that you resurfaced on the blog scene with a renewed spirit. I marvel how you can take concrete examples from the world of here and now and turn them into something profoundly ethereal.


    1. Dear Peter, I have just a few minutes ago, found your pictures of the beautiful yard with flowers and veg and cherries growing. It looks gorgeous and so very lovely! I did this before I ever realised that you had left a comment for me on here. Aaaaah a connection was being made across the ether! Again I must thank you for your kind and encouraging words…you have given me so much positive input and inspired me to keep writing, and for that I thank you, deeply. Please do have a lovely vacation both of you and I am so glad you left a comment just now as I had hoped to wish you and Gertrud a brilliant and productive Summer. Take good care, Blessings to you and your wonderful family! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much for the nomination! Right now my husband and I are working all hours when it is not raining as we are self employed gardeners so really busy! I am trying to keep all aspects of life, simple… So will save challenges like the one I was nominated for for the winter months. But I thank you kindly for considering me, With Best Wishes,
      Krystyna 🌹🌼🌺🌿
