Place Of Distant Fields

Place Of Distant Fields short poem

Photo by Rennett Stowe

In those moments you succumb to the windless state,
before mills dormant arms
When you shed colored skies and scented breeze,
letters detach from their horizontal stance.
This familiar place of utter embraced distance,
this far edge of nameless field.
An ever present non-existent space
where the weightless heart lightly parts untouched grasses.
Where senses sleep in the soundless meadow.

Deeply do we love..adrift
within such undefinable space.

This poem makes me think of those special times when I’m experiencing “twilight sleep”. When I’m dreaming, but half awake. I know it’s a dream, but I fight sometimes to stay in that beautiful place. You described it perfectly!

Upon the land far away is something different I dare say the look of sandy beaches and palm trees are set on top of flowing sea reeds where in that distance of the land is something different seen at hand
