Together We’ll Go


we should climb to the top
take a glimpse of the other side
holding tight, refusing to stop
enlightenment from on high
with an encouraging momentum found
best to start down low
travel slowly just off the ground
breathe deeply, and together we’ll go

  1. This is the spirit I need to have every day ~ really a great, energetic read and feeling from your words but just the very thought needed to get the best out of the day, and find those new exciting things in life. “holding tight, refusing to stop
    enlightenment from on high…” Not a bad thought at all to have at the beginning of the day here πŸ™‚


    • So, what you’re saying is you need me around? ~ You know, to keep your spirits up. ~ I need to read this poem every morning. I love the positivity that flows from it, as well. You know, us poets, generally don’t understand what it is we’re writing or the message we need to convey, we just feel the urge to share what’s on our hearts. That’s how it is for me, anyway. I read my poems a few days later and sit dumbfounded. ..I wrote that? Crazy how days later I find my own poetry teaching me. Nothing short of a miracle, Dalo.
      I love having anything to do with your day beginning. Sweet dreams, Mr. Collis.


  2. Audrey, this is a gorgeous poem, rich with sensation and suggestive of the future. I’ve read it 3 times and will read it again. “Travel slowly – glimpse the other side – together we’ll go.” A good strategy for living each day.


    • Shari, thank you so much for telling me. I’m often stunned by your comments. The care you take, when reading my poems, is the best encouragement I could ever receive. I feel heard. And that hasn’t always been the case. I feel less alone with my thoughts and understood. ..which means everything. Thank you for being you.. xoxo


    • You have an impressive group of followers, Audrey, you shouldn’t feel lonely. I’m glad to be one of the group. Poetry is so close to one’s heart and a luxury to read but a challenge to write well. I want to give encouragement where it is due. I would like to comment more often (on your site and others) but my life is pretty nuts right now. It brings me much pleasure to read your blog. Keep writing. Keep being you.


  3. I was one of those kids who loved climbing in trees, so this speaks loudly to me! When the branches are placed just so, one can soar to great heights — and what better place to take a book if one wants to be undisturbed?!!
