This poem is about several and varying sensory experiences of another dimension. This poem is from my book 'Kaleidoscope, BOOK 1' - a collection of poems.



A cool arm round my shoulder

Comforting, when in dire pain

I open my eyes, no one is there

Tricks of my mind, again?


The smell of burning wood smoke

Warm weather, the hearth is bare

Yet, the smell pervades the room

Tricks of my mind, to share?


Entering at the doorway

The strong smell of freesia’s sweet

Yet not a bloom in sight

Tricks of my mind, now greet?


I’m in bed, ready to sleep

In the dark, there is no light

My hair is stroked by gentle hand

Tricks of my mind, at night?


Aware of warmth near me

As I sit in my study’s chair

Is this a trick of my mind?

Or is someone standing there?


A piece of music playing

Images flash before my eyes

A memory, but quite unknown

Bringing with it tears and sighs


One day I will fully understand

But for now, what is, must be

The spirit world can connect

Though, as yet, I cannot see


I recognise who comes to visit

For each one I have a face

Those who have loved me

And now gone to a higher place


They bring hope as well as comfort

That we shall meet again, one day

They have not left and forgotten

They simply could not stay

CopyrightA Coatesworth 2011
