Within it

by Karla   Feb 18, 2016

I summon you
to touch her suffering,
lifting the veil of the blue moon
because she whirls within a circle,
protected by the stars,
resting in a faith
a few dare to understand.

she is the radiant is
and loves you as you become
what you are, and
you are the earth i am standing on,
the falling water reflecting
my face:
everything that honours life.


(women are holy here:
they speak in tongues
and their rhythms belong
to the drums as the winds rise.

if for two seconds
your intellect could ascend to her,
the whole mankind would be
forgiven and beauty could be

your eyes brought you
face to face to heaven
and there one sided truth
we are not different though.

my original impulse
still summons you
to vibrate
because faith pulses
because suffering escapes me.

    You can't help but get swept away with the words Karla writes.

    she has such an elegant way about her writing. this poem is very uplifting and stylish.

    I do want to highlight on a line if I may:

    "she is the radiant is" <--- within the English language this does look like a typo, however as Karla pointed out it is exactly what she meant it to be.

    I for one: enjoyed this line, because it so powerfully displays the power of the second stanza... "Is" becomes the power statement, Is and will always be radiant... this is how I interpreted this line... to me, it makes this poem stand out about the rest! just beautiful!!

    Possible typo ? "she is the radiant is", did you mean "she is the radiance" or am I misreading it?
