Oh Hello

Oh Hello

Catherine Sabatina

Oh hello - I knew it was you
I was aware before I turned my face
I felt you in my blood, my bones and skin
My soul tingled like bells from a sacred place

I feel you gently approach - I knew at once it was you
Your spirit, energy, soul and love
My skin sensitive, my inner-being alert
I feel you everywhere, down below and above

Connected and entwined, in tune with spirit
A sixth sense of simply knowing
I feel when you are happy, sad or alone
I can tell by the power that your spirit is glowing

No need to call out, or announce your arrival
Your soul approaches me first
One step ahead to greet your love
As the sun appears with force and burst

Your warmth touches me before your skin
Your feelings kissing my mouth
You are holding me before we embrace
The powers of west, east, north and south

Spirit is the truth, the soul clean and pure
The body a capsule, a shell
The spirit is strong, the body is weak
I know it’s you, I can always tell

previous reviews & comments:

Catherine Sabatina's "Oh Hello" really touched me. I am not normally a fan of longer poems because I find them hard to follow. But I followed this on all the way and absolutely fell in love with it. She writes with clarity and passion, that much is clear, and the familairty of this has an uplift to it that we all need. It is a basic need, after all, to be known, to be recognised, to be acknowledged. Brilliant poem. Jilly Henderson-Long, March 2021
