Of Threads – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Breathe and let be.” Jon Cabat-Zinn

Of Threads

The point at which the
moment disappeared
is lost to me,
all that lingers is the feeling
of threads slipping, loosing, 
releasing me into a floating
drift in a space between
where I stretched out across
the sky so lightly that the stars
passed through me as
intangible procession,
and as the last thread unwound
I found myself beyond myself, 
I found myself true.

  2. “the sky so lightly that the stars
    passed through me as
    intangible procession” such profound lines. Sometimes we are in such a state when nothing affect you in any manner. Suspended between the state of dream and realities, life enters a different dimension.
