I can’t wait to see how you do that?
Would you laugh, if you knew
I nodded my head when you asked?
I couldn’t wait to see what I’d do either.
But then, took it as a dare.
You’ve been daring me
since the day we met. Asking those
Like: What is soul?
It took pages of time, but finally
found an answer that satisfied,
“Soul is our connection, our
constant conversation with
that which is eternal,
that which we define as Divine.”
I feel your hand on my back,
pushing me forward, always encouraging,
always curious about the next curve
in whatever road we travel.
Always challenging the me
that only I can be.

Footnotes: The title of this piece is a question Annell asked me, in response to a comment I posted in a private chat. Annell’s blog, of poetry and art, may be found here:
Image is two distinctly different, pen and ink line weave drawings, digitally merged. It always reminds me that what you see on the outside, might be very different from that which breathes on the inside.
