I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

This Poem is Healing, Recovery and Light


This poem is an instrument of healing.
This poem is a recipe for recovery.
This poem is filled and surrounded with light.

This poem must be read with an open heart.
You can take it into you, into that heart,
then let it spread it throughout your body.
Now see it extend as a cloak to embrace you.
This poem is an instrument of healing.

This poem is a set of instructions
which you can follow step by step.
Try not to vary the key ingredients.
You want the taste just right, and the nutrients.
This poem is a recipe for recovery.

This poem is soft yet radiant.
It is all-pervasive, but you can direct it.
Look at the colour. It is blueish-white.
Or is it in fact whitish-blue? Ah yes!
This poem is filled and surrounded with light.

This poem is yours, your instrument of healing.
This poem is a secret recipe I share for your recovery.
This poem, if you let it, will fill and surround you with light.

















This poem is an example of Hannah Gosselin’s Boomerang Metaphors.

This poem was written for Susan’s ‘Recovery/Healing’Midweek Motif at Poets United.


“Everything in creation, everything in the universe moves in the flow of Light. This subtle Light has a natural stream of flow in your circulatory system. The circulatory system of your body is a river of Light. It is a very concrete flowing fluid, and the Light that is pouring in moves into your system to guide you into the flowing current of new life that is changing your whole physical body.”

  2. Lovely writing, Rosemary. Light (as energy or as poetry) is definitely such a healing force. It is a good thing to seek out both.

  3. This is absolutely gorgeous. It has all the things I love about a poem - it is uplifting, makes the reader feel really good, and it is in Hannah's wonderful boomerang form. This poem is a TOTAL HIT!!!!!!!

  4. Excellent! This poem may heals better than a spoonful of medicine in the grayness of time as it carries Light and meditation and spellbinding repetition of goodness and love.

  7. If all healing were only as easy as folllowing directions, a recipe. I rather like the questioning of the color of the light, it made me chuckle, because if healing did happen - would the color of the light really matter?

    1. Some people think different colours have different properties – in which case it might.

  10. This poem is simply wonderful Rosemary (I read De's interview and was introduced to the idea of using 'This poem' as a start).. what I take away is that your poem gives us the permission to make it what we need..maybe to write our own version - always to appreciate and enjoy the healing power of words

    1. Very true. (One of Susan's requests was to write 'a poem that heals'.)

  11. Good poetry does offer simple solace and it opens up the senses; is it poetic medication?
    A lovely one indeed., Rosemary!
