Poetry is a favorite - maybe because sometimes a simple phrase or words could mean so much in few words or many. My mom is a poet and I adore her energy in writing to her inner spirit. Imagine those words taking you to a place of complete expression. Brining your spirit to the top and letting the beauty soar.

Bright star, would I were steadfast as thou art
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night,
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature's patient sleepless eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth's human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors;
No yet still steadfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever or else swoon to death.
~ John Keats
