For Pulseans

Philo ikonya © 2010

I look in your eye,
It does not shift,
You look in mine,
Eyes are locked.

In the still silence
When we face each other,
You know we can talk.
I say it first,
I came here to feel you pulse,
Not to check your purse,
But for a moment there is deeper silence.
How long must we endure?

Speak your heart and pain,
Words can,
Can find, warm wind and
an embrace, not silence.

Take part in the music,
You will never see zero comments,
again, and remember silences are words too.
Just smile and write again!

Here, you are already are,
And from now on, just promise,
To send in a little message,
to people you meet on Pulse,
Be part of a re-birth and keep
Your finger on World Pulse!

Express your dreams,
Keep your eyes on the horizon,
And move, everywhere without fear!

Hi Philo

Nice poem! The pulse is hot, full of joy and laughter, or at least that is the way I choose to see it. You see honey, I am kind of stubborn, I always strive to see the glass half full, not half empty, hehe.

I thank you for coming here, sharing with all of us, and offering your support to all the gals striving to give birth to their ideas in the form of words that like a butterfly touch our lives with their beauty, kindness and warmth.

How eloquently and beautifully you express the beauty of PulseWire. I hope many members will read this poem and join the chorus of voices, take part in the music and reach out a hand to another member. I pledge to send out more messages and smiles out, and I hope others will join me in keeping a finger on the pulse and celebrating the love and friendship that is PulseWire.
