The Return


April 13, 2020 by petrujviljoen

it gets so one sees persecution everywhere. at least this time round i didn’t have to leave and then no one left and no one came on(to) the bare platform of my life while I was counting the cost of pain … my cat disappeared. time buckled.

let the question leave. now. let it go.
relief then. this round, read time … the little moon, (read dreamtime of the jewel) there when i was brought back from where i was searching, searching it came with back with me, beaming on my search in the no where in the no time and now this, this jewel, the subject of my search and now and here

One will …
here be love divine aided by the Love Divine aiding the very real psychic skills it took. I asked. I received. The return of the jewel. And I thank thee.

    Listen to one’s inner voice is a true skill. Connectivity to the Universe I think is a very good gift 🙂

    I get it… the incomplete sense of emptiness… and then just when you’re stopped your search, just when hope has flickered… the return. Lovely sentiment, and I’m glad your cat knew the way home.

    A scary analogy, rife with reality. I love stream of consciousness poems. my first reading made me think that it was God’s grace that was returned, but hey, for we cat lovers, it’s the same thing.

    It’s the not knowing that warps everything. Uncertainty is contagious. You’ve expressed that well. (K)

    An intriguing stream of consciousness piece. I love that you included a cat, even if it had disappeared! Was it the cat’s disappearance that caused time to buckle or did it happen anyway?

  12. I think cats come and go as they please, but how sweet it is when they come back again.

  13. This is so strange and fractured – gives it real intensity – is this paranoia or reality? It has a hallucinatory feel.
