Deep in the Still

‘Deep in the Still’

Deep in the still,
And into the night.
Just me and Heaven’s eyes
Become one upon first sight.

I look to you for peace,
As you shine your light.
Amazed at your pure beauty,
Such a mass entity of delight.

I walk with thee in the night.
As I climb the righteous stairway.
Deep breath in
As I absorb what you say.

Deep in the still,
As you whisper in my ear.
Gentle breeze of a kiss.
What is it you see upon my face?
A tear?

A tear of joy falls upon my cheek,
That makes me drop to my knees
To bless this Earth.
Such a beautiful sight to be seen.

Deep in the still,
And into the night.
Just me and Heaven’s eyes
Become one upon first sight.

About Samara Marie

Having been born and raised in Inglewood, CA, I now proudly call New York City my home. I've been an elementary school teacher a little over 20 years, having taught grades first through fifth. It seems that teaching is what I was meant to do in life, and it is also what I love to do. One of my favorite quotes is by Albert Camus: "Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present." I do give my all to prepare my students to become our future activists, educators, doctors, and the list goes on. The opportunities are out there, and I want my students to grab hold of them.      One of my other passions is writing. I thank my middle school English teacher, Mr. Roger Lawson, for introducing me to poetry writing. He taught me how to use the very powerful tool of written expression, which I value so much. I have writing to thank for getting me through my darkest moments. Writing, along with faith, was my saving grace, while growing up. I don't consider myself a professional writer, but I do use writing as a tool to help me process the heavy weight that the world places on my shoulders sometimes. Writing provides me with another way to express my emotions. Besides my actual voice, writing is my favorite go to tool of self expression.      What else about me? I have a love of music. One of my very first posts on this site was a poem that I wrote about my love of music. I'm someone who has an adventurous spirit. I enjoy everything ranging from sports to shopping (I collect sneakers). I can go from spending time at the beach all day to watching sports all day. I've been a WWE fan since I was a kid. I may live in New York, but I will always be a Dodgers fan. Having been an athlete until I graduated from college ( I ran track), working out is a must for me. I love to read, I love to learn, I love people, and I love life. I have many more interests. There's several layers of me. At the end of the day, I love and I am proud of the person that I see in the mirror.

    How I love the play of images in this poem. The massive eye of the night speaks to your ear! Picture that! And then sensing the enormity of that presence emitting a whisper a kiss and seeing something as small as a tear. The power of all is indeed awesome. My wish is that everyone–especially all children–be able to take this loving stroll in the night!

      Susan,

      Thank you for your comment. I really appreciate it. I love going hiking and walking at night. There’s something very soothing about it. It seems like nature speaks to me so much at that time, and I can see a beauty that is much different from what I see during the day.

      Take Care,
      Samara
