Crack open the door
so eyes can explore
a little bit more
of existence core.

A peek into life
so hard to describe,
a perfect divine,
intricate design.

An abyss that’s not there,
yet flows through the air,
a mystical flare
always ever rare.

Swift trickling bright sparks
that glow in the dark,
creating a mark,
priceless work of art.

Shift views to exhale,
spirits taking sail,
no soul falls or fails,
pure peace is inhaled.

Clear thoughts can then form
what life will perform,
easing every storm,
so nature feels warm.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

  1. I love how you are able to capture moments of impact. Each moment we experience has meaning. You highlight positivity in those moments through your poetry and you remind me that simplicity does it….. Just live in the moment.

  2. The first stanza is so simple, yet profound. It describes perfectly what we should all strive for in life: just take a peek around and see what’s there. We’ll never discover anything if we don’t open our eyes a little bit and look. Lots of wisdom in this one, Grace, as always. Wonderful piece of writing. πŸ™‚

  3. Wow. I love this entire poem, and especially love the beginning…it’s those cracks that allow the light in and out. Just gorgeous, dear Grace. ❀️πŸ₯°
