Really Real

5c35f9df7f267

To sail in the sweet stream of creative bliss and painless dreams
of sanity and healthy days, slow nights of languid moonbeams.
If I could hold that moment, where nothing hurts, where the next day
promises to be even brighter, even kinder but in the very same way,
I’d call you on the telephone to jump into your jet-plane, fly on down to play.

Wasted minutes tie us up, prisoners of inertia’s knots, “ Don’t act! Don’t move!
Stay where you are, don’t learn, don’t grow, find some excuse to not improve.
Don’t take a chance, don’t trust your instincts crying out, why that’s insane…
If I could send that invitation against my fears, then you could ride that plane,
and finally make the leap of life, that comes but once and changes everything.

My limiting condition, like a root bound plant, keeps me focused in one place.
I’ve learned to harness inner freedom, with waves of sunlight on my face.
You know we grow with each goodbye with each hello that comes and goes,
If we don’t resist, say yes, to that open door that swings ahead, who knows?
We could be counting stars in an indigo night, hands held tight, entangling toes.

To dream inside creative bliss, to twist and mold the old, we fabricate the new.
We’ve always been sorcerers, who make something from nothing and watch it come true.
Old hands at the wheel of digital life in a time when this age rebirths itself to be
a time when people will put greed before art and even art becomes an NFT.
Hop on a plane, or take a train, the time for real is really here; I hope that you agree.

  1. Oh, my goodness, my dearest Karima, this is superb. You took me with you in that world of yours filled with brilliance.

    To dream inside creative bliss, to twist and mold the old, we fabricate the new.

    Sending love and plenty of hugs hon.
    Have a beautiful Sunday.

    Oh, you hit a sore spot there, Karima.

    “a time when people will put greed before art and even art becomes an NFT”

    It’s a thing, and I have been mourning my lost innocence since I first heard of it. But how good to see you and those who matter will always treasure the reality behind the make-belief.
    Ugh, sorry, your poetry always brings out the cryptic wording in me. Love your poem! Love you 🙂

    • Love you too Joey! Yes..our beloved virtual is like a California gold rush in its’ second stage like SL in 2005 people becoming millionaires selling virtual land..What happened to Art for Art’s Sake? Art for the joy of creating it and sharing? You know what I mean:):) I guess we are from the past old virtual pioneers like boomers out of touch with the now hehe..I choose to stay out of touch and maybe touch base in RL now and then:):) Big Hugs thank you!❤️

    One more Karima brand piece with flowing emotions. I liked
    If I could hold that moment, where nothing hurts…so beautiful. And the phrases like.. prisoners of inertia’s knots are so thought provoking. Loved the poem and its soul too. Well penned, Karima 👍💐💖🙏

    • Thank you Kaushal..and am so glad you did like this one. We are living in such changing times…and I sometimes observe amazed and sometimes saddened…that the wonderful passes away as well as the unwanted. I have been a digital learner for 14 years and I have learned a lot about virtual worlds..now this Neo Virtual wave that is sweeping the planet..does not appeal to me…time to go back to the old really real reality…whatever that will even be in a few years…:) My muse took a trip on that idea:):) Thank you once again for your appreciation of my poetry! 🌹🙏❤️

    Oh my, this is so magnificently expressed, Karima…if I were a music producer, I would ask for your permission to create a magical song of your writing…such that it reaches from home to home…soul to soul…I first copied / pasted some of my favorite lines but then I could see, I was creating a sea of your pearls…coz I was almost pasting everything…what a beautiful scenery you’ve painted with your lines…I love the imagery 💫

    • Hello my friend Navin…and thank you for these amazing words that inspire, encourage and caress my creative spirit. You have the great gift of stimulating any writer you review. You are generous, discerning and you yourself are such a mystical writer(I am enjoying your book btw:):) you see that transcendent glow in the works of others. You are contagious, smiles, in the very best of ways.. Thank you for lines like, : “I first copied / pasted some of my favorite lines but then I could see, I was creating a sea of your pearls…” Sighs..happily..you are motivating me to more….and more:) 🙏

        You’re very welcome, my friend Karima…Honestly, I sense lines when I read writings…it’s like words flow towards me & I reflect from there…idk if it makes any sense…but this is what I do…automatically…but this requires magical lines that create this free flow of energy…I don’t need to know a person to really know a person…you are an amazing writer & a being…your writings are truly magical…I’m sure, I’m not the only one with this meaning…You must know that I’m honoured & humbled that you’re enjoying my book…no words can express how grateful I am…I’m blessed🙏

        Believe me the feeling of happiness is mutual…you honour me with your heartfelt words…my gratitude to you, Karima…honestly, I didn’t read (or notice) your comments/reviews on other’s writings previously…I’m perhaps like a horse…but everything has its timing, right?

    Oh my, I agree, and so love reading you. I can never get enough of your creative spirit, and talent. There are so many wondrous lines in this poem, I cannot choose a favorite. It resonates so deeply for me, as for the longest time, as you know, my creativity was stifled, and to be in the space of limitlessness is a God given blessing. Beautiful poetry, Karima. ❤️🦋🌹🌻🤗🙏

    • Thank you so much Jeff, and sorry I just saw your beautiful comment. Creativity is such a delicate ephemeral space…but something I have learned..Intuition must lead this dance and we the poets, must follow:) It can’t work if it’s the other way around… I wish you a very creative NewYear, with health and tranquility. Thank you dear poetic friend for always being so supportive and thoughtful in your comments.❤️🤗🙏🌹🌟🦋

        You’re most welcome, Karima. Always. Ah, I completely and wholeheartedly agree – poetry lives and breathes into the following, I think, just like life. Thank you for the lovely well wishes. May the New Year bring you an abundance of joy, peace, love, and many blessings, my dear friend. It is an honor to be on this poetic journey with you. 🙏✨🌻🌹💖💫
