Thank you Tamara Moore.

Your recent poem about "him", inspired me to write this poem.

You are a interesting and delicate poet, to me, Tamara.

Here is to the birthing of many more heartfelt poems.

Mesmerism of Him

I see him from afar

his tender light glowing like a star.

Luminous flushes of passion

emanating from his smiling dashings.

Somehow, he makes you feel

like a doughy and mushy freewheeler-dealer,

catching your breath,

as he walks on your left.


He has not discovered,

he leaves a trail of encouraging doves.

His thoughtfulness,

unknowingly courts a heart that is now thwart.

His soulfulness is subtle.

Yet, he unknowingly speaks totally

of openness and sincerity.

Who he touches frees up feelings of equality.

His presence is light,

yet, vigorous, strong and bright.

Grassy landscapes are set on fire

through his active vibrancy and desire.

He walks with healthy assuredness,

unrehearsed and gracious in defeat procured.

He believes he can handle

all that comes his way to hurdle.


You feel him kneading your heart,

turning your day into the Northern Lights chart,

leaving you unstarched,

like a new piece of putty that’s now unparched.

This poem Mesmerism makes me feel

      As I read it thoughts of how during my "spiritual childhood" how I saw what we term "god" in the distance, outside of my self and doing all of those things from outside of me. Even the voice that should have been coming from within myself was a bodiless voice outside of me. It gave me "goose pimples" considering how I eliminated the distance between us and I found it had always been within me.

      A very inspirational piece, if you actually see "That" I believe you will reach your destiny in this lifetime.
