There are feelings beyond expressions,
Emotions that can never in words be told
be it in poetry or prose;
Feelings above music and song.

All these mediums and more,
can light the flame;
Make your spirit soar beyond,

To where only rapture resides,
Thoughts suspended.

To where you can feel an ecstasy
Emotion beyond a name.
Where you want to stay and fly free;

Also cry the tears you hidden,
tears, also without name.
Cleansing in their own purity.

Moments of epiphany.

    • Thank you, Balroop, I will stay in these moments as long as they are.
      I know I have been a bit absent – on and off. Thanks for your welcome.
      Life never is a straight line but gratitude for any form lives within.
      A wonderful 2021 to you too.

  1. Miriam, I love how you capture the moments of epiphany… with such beauty and purity! I remember discovering the word as young and it was an epiphany in itself … that there was a word for most absolute of emotions, of oneness! For those โ€˜feelings beyond expressions,โ€™ Thank you so much for putting these gifts of life into words for us! Hugs xx โค๏ธ

    • Dear Annika, thank you for your deep and beautiful comment. I love how you say that you found discovering life itself was an epiphany. How true is that. It humbles me that you felt my words were a gift . ๐Ÿ’•.

    • I am glad you agree with me about the wonder of these moments.
      At times they just come to you – without warning. You are speechless
      and in re-telling there will be no words to describe this epiphany.

      Thank you for lovely comment.

  2. You are hitting a chord in how I am feeling today, Miriam. And, like you say well, feelings and emotions โ€œcan never in words be told….โ€. You remind me how tears can flow, yet we do not have words to discuss or describe. And then I read how you share about tears. I usually type my comment as I am reading and I am surprised, yet not surprised how your poem includes tears. Beautiful, Miriam!

    • Erica, I looked with surprise when I saw your answer to another poem. Two from you in one morning – and the sun showing its face. Many feelings canโ€™t be explained fully and at times not at all. Sadness is one of them.

      Your in depth comment is beautiful and again I feel honoured by your true
      understanding. ๐Ÿ’•

      • I like to plan my reading when I can savour the posts and especially your poetry, Miriam. I have been increasing my evening walks…….dark, stars, peaceful……and at this time of day inexplicable emotions surface. Thank you for your beautiful words.โค๏ธ
