Reincarnate



~~~

I have been here before

Not a random déjà vu

A sense of being past

Rooted in something true

~~~

Ergo in time, now history

I trod an older path

Like mysteries of memories

That ancient shadows cast

~~~

Some life that lies behind me

Full lived until its time

Soul transcends the dying sea

To life of a different kind

~~~

And there reborn, in time new

I sense I know this place

I see my own humanity through

The same eyes on a different face

~~~

  1. This speaks volumes to me. I suspect it becomes something that happens with age and the fact that mortality as closer than it’s ever been…

    I LOVE this! That sense of familiar in something new seems to happen more frequently as we age. I think it’s because we have more experiences to compare things to. I think it also explains why time seems to fly more quickly as we age. Beautifully written, as always!

    and I hope you continue to have a full life moving forward…

  6. A most interesting thought here. Haven’t we all been before?

    Dearest Brad I love this poem it speaks to me.

    “Some life that lies behind me
    Full lived until its time
    Soul transcends the dying sea
    To life of a different kind”

    We go through different stages of our life and I feel wiser and more centered than ever before. This poem talks to the stages of my life. Beautiful! Hoping your day is filled with sunshine 🌞. Love Jonikins
