Sword of Awareness - Aug. 16, 2010




 Sword of Awareness
 
A sword of awareness can be drawn to deflect all sides
Averting misleading deception
Striking immense fear into the heart of those
Who can see your apparent perception

A razor-sharp discernment will cut straight to the chase
Shrewdly seeing all in undying motion
Rendering powerful blows to break down a charade
Bringing a swift end to chaotic commotion

The spirit of instinct wields your sword of awareness
Sharpened by the vision of your third eye
While knowing rules the heart of the sword bearer
Gallantly fighting through chaos and lies

Do you have hold of the hilt of your sword of awareness
Lifting your blade of discernment up high
Are your edges of perception sharpened and ready
To slice through the chaos and lies?

The world is full of chaos and lies...I hope our swords are sharp enough.

That's an interesting and perceptive use of imagery Neva, in your normal beautiful style.

It's really sad that we have to be so careful and ever ready with our sword of awareness. You've put it very well indeed!

A great poem, rich with metaphor and abstract meaning. It reads smoothly and the texture of sound the reader creates by virtue of your word usage is very nice. I really enjoyed reading this poem aloud. Thank you for sharing your gift.

i always find myself shaking my head in amazement and speechless whenever i read neva's poetry. i find her writing superior. her poems demonstrate wisdom that can only be acquired through life's experiences through trials, tribulations and deliverance. she speaks with the utmost sensitivity from every cell of her being. her work speaks in volumes. i am blessed to have her as a friend. from lorilynn

like a teaching tool
I wrote a story for children using the sword to teach a lesson. There are many sides of instruction - are there not???

Wow, this is powerful. The spirit of instinct wields your sword of awareness
Sharpened by the vision of your third eye
While knowing rules the heart of the sword bearer
Gallantly fighting through chaos and lies - love the way you said this.
