Full Circle

Sweet the wind sings to me
On Angels wings she bring  to me a
Then she takes me Full Circle again.

Full Circle is the moment
The beginning touches the end
When every question has its answer
No more Motives to defend.

It’s the slap against your forehead
At the moment of insight
When you realize all along
Your instincts had been right!

Oh what a joy!
If only once in all our lives
To be chosen by Sweet Wind
And spun upon the skies

To where the bigger picture
Is laid out right before our eyes
To where the light inside explodes
 in birth and Joy becomes alive.

So best that you stay focused
And ready my friend
For with a whooooosh
Sweet wind might choose you, and then

let her blow your skirt up
Run her fingers thru your hair
For where sweet wind will take you
GODs amazing Grace is there.

And with a Woooshe she takes you back
 to where you’ve already been.
Another Woooooooshe
there she goes , a Full Circle again.

About this poem

This poem danced in my head, not letting go for a few weeks prior to my grandmothers death , a week shy of her turning 101 years. I read it to her the day before she passed and she told me it seemed about seeking Joy and being prepared for when Jesus would come to take us to heaven. She was an advocate of believing in Jesus Christ and reading of revelations. I read this as part of a eulogy at her service. Those who understood, understood with joy. Some did not . However I know the full circle here was the completion of the beautiful life of Susie Violet.

    Strong Emotion is fuel for our souls. In my Mind This poem ignites an awe for the spiritual connection reaching beyond our physical sense Through the Time we share Here As Eternals within the Brief spark of life Turning with the tides of Time in this ocean of eternity

    “Full Circle “ is an interesting psycho-spiritual poem in many ways, inviting us to step outside of our Westernized cultural box of considering life and our acts of consciousness along with it as being unidirectional, going from the past to the present to the future, rather than alternatively viewing life and consciousness as circular activities that invite us to live the precious moments of our lives to their fullest and find wholeness and “Amazing Grace” in that experience of the moment. Your long-living grandmother seemed to have understood that. Thank you, Amy Curl.
