I have been thinking about my upcoming movie review of Before Midnight. As I prepare to write this post, I have been pondering how films influence my ideas about love, and how in turn , my impressions of love affect my interpretation of films. I finished The Wind immediately after viewing The New World with Colin Farrell and Q’orianka Kilcher. It was one of those films that transports you right into the story, as if you are living within it. I wrote The Wind in 2006, amidst a backdrop of major life transitions and mystical awakenings. The intermingling of spiritual and personal love provided my muse.
You are my wind.
You are the force that makes ripples throughout every minute particle that comprises my body, spirit, and the inner corridors of my flaming, scorching heart.
Your motion knocks me from standing still or holding on to anything other than the barest, deepest, boldest inkling of truth.
God is forcing these phrases out of my fire, out of my pain, out of my wrenching sorrow.
I’ll say it here, I love you like I’ve loved no other. Ever or evermore. I cannot contain this love.
The longing is pungent yet sweet, bitter yet sour, empty yet overflowing to the ends of the encompassing sea.
Wave after wave after wave I ride. Dreaming, longing, melting into the state of You and I.
I cannot remember for even a fragment of a second my existence before your eyes found mine.
I am wandering aimlessly in a rapturous state of desire, untamed by no one but your eternal gaze, a laser beam through my being, only open to you, my flame, my wind.

Just lovely Linda~

Loved the poem, was written in a way that captivates you, it was great!
Your blog seems really interesting, thanks so much for visiting mine 😀
thank you 🙂
I love that film. I think it is in my top five list. Lovely poetry as well.
Interesting thing is why this post did not appear in my reader… Hmm.
thank you Monika, I was hoping you would read this post! any tips regarding the mystery of missing posts?
PS happy solstice 🙂
I do not have any tips, I just thought that you have not posted anything recently and wanted to check if I had missed something.
glad you did 🙂
That is a beautiful piece of writing!
This is stunning, Linda! Stunningly beautiful. What gorgeousness, what rapture captured on the page! Thank you so much for sharing. I, too, have had to sit down and write a poem in response to some movie that rocked my soul upon watching. You are good!
thank you Susan, I have not written many poems at all in the past few years, no inspiration. But I was feeling so many emotions at this time and was able to put pen to paper.
in light, Linda

Wonderful and very moving! I loved it!
thank you dear!
Hope you are doing well. I have missed you these last few days and was dying to get on here and get caught up with everyone. Hope you had a good weekend and pre hump day week!
I have had a bumpy few days, filled with ups and downs. glad you are back and really felt supported by you regarding my indian restaurant odyssey.
Dude, you never have to worry that you might sound crazy recounting some story that defies law and space and time around me! I can’t wait to get to typing mine out, but I had to work all day and ughhhh. But I am home now, happy to be in PJs and may try to start tonight. Oh no to a bumpy few days. Let me know if there is anything I can do. I asked for some insight for you, but all I get is ‘family’ right now.
I feel so fortunate that you asked for guidance on my behalf. If you can heal physical aches and pains, I will gladly accept your offer. I have tried to heal myself with mixed results.
Have a wonderful evening, and I so look forward to your post.
love and light, Linda
Thinking of how to go about this. I am not sure, but I feel positive that I may have some results. I suppose I should ask for how to proceed. I am such a psychic dork.
Stunning poem Linda. It is reminiscent of Rumi, who you know I love.

Any resemblance to the master poet is a high compliment. I am picky about poetry, and I truly and honestly loved it. 🙂

Firstly, I love your cover picture – absolutely breathtaking. This is beautiful and I relate as I often find my own ideas of love morphing as a result of the media I am exposed to. Sometimes this is movies – I know it sounds cleche, though The notebook for example changed my ideas about the the struggles we sometimes have in relationships – and that those are OKAY and represent a strong connection if you can work through them. That conflict (non violent conflict) can also represent a type of passion.
There are songs as well that have this impact on me. Ordinary People, by John Legend is another great one that had its moment helping me to find comfort in a relationship I was involved in.
Great blog that inspired some thought, and your words, beautiful. It appears you have quite the knack with words!
Thanks for sharing
wow Louella, thank you!
I think we may be kindred spirits….What a thoughtful comment, it means a lot to hear that you enjoyed this poem.
