Home of my Soul

For some time now

i have been unable to dream

clearly

of the place where my soul dwells

 

occasionally i float

in that direction, but then

an iron portcullis

bars my way and returns me

here

 

last night – and on saturday –

i dreamed once again

of my heart

my soul

the place where it is free

and

a burning need

to stand in those shadows again

has filled me

since then

 

unable to dream

myself there

whenever i wish

has made me decide

i will take myself there

once again –

face down the iron gate

that holds me here

 

back to the lake,

the spring,

the plains and the fields

of sweet william…

the whisper of the wind

in the lonely oak trees…

and the gift of the ancestors – 

my once lost ring

 

no longer can i

ignore my heart’s pull –

so back to my soul’s home

i will go…

 

when spring finally comes
