The Flight of the Condor

16 Sep

The wall has crumbled
The bastion of secrets
has fallen
Stone by stone
Layer upon layer
exposing the Heart
and secrets behind
The Soul is exposed
The Heart is raw
I can no longer hide
Now you see me
Now you know me
fully exposed
For who I am
A mortal Heart
Lost in a spiritual Soul
Eternally seeking
The one true Love
And yet I seek
acceptance and forgiveness
for transgressions
that my mind
no longer recalls
never committed
I have clambered over
the rocks of life
To reach the summit
of my dreams
My one true love
Now above
snow covered peaks
reaching for the Heavens
The Condor fly’s
Valleys far below
Greenness all around
A wisp of smoke
Rising from a chimney
Promising warmth
and love
The smell
of new burnt wood
Wafting on the breeze
from the valley
far below
The lonely flight
of the male Condor
Now ceases its lonely  flight
Now ceases its lonely call
I swoop and weave
in the mirrors
of the ancient mountain peaks
Against my will
My mind succumbs
into the depths
of a continuing expose
Of incarnates Eternal
A warrior of love
Do you not recall
in your girlish Heart
of love
I promised you
so long ago
In a vow
I made so true
The words I spoke
were words of love
Words of love
for only you
And now I bind
my Heart again
And renew my ancient vow
My love is now
as once was then
My love belongs
to you
The flight of the Condor
has come to an end
The Condor is home
His soul at rest

      Hi Sue, appreciate your comment, sometimes with a re blog I score a new hit from people who may have missed it first time around.
      Wrote that one in Chile one cold afternoon.
      Kind regards.
