Eternal Call

I used to talk for hours on the phone;
Before that no, I barely spoke at all.
As changes changed my life, o how I’ve grown!

It took me to a kind of twilight zone,
His conversation anything but small.
I used to talk for hours on the phone.

I gave myself to others as a loan,
A borrowed blessing passing in the hall.
As changes changed my life, o how I’ve grown!

His spirit woke my every nerve and bone,
A voice within; I answered when he called.
I used to talk for hours on the phone.

Now I am not an island, but a stone
Creating waves of goodness as I fall.
As changes changed my life, o how I’ve grown!

One Life in everything, the truth be known;
His Light the highest nature of us all.
I used to talk for hours on the phone;
As changes changed my life, o how I’ve grown!

I really enjoy this form, but it takes a lot of time and thought to write.

  1. A challenge to write this form, I know. Thanks for joining in.

    I like the theme of awakening with: His Light the highest nature of us all.
    I also like the journey of changes with this line:
    As changes changed my life, o how I’ve grown!

    What a great line. I really like the conversational tone of this villanelle. You are talking about quite deep, profound matters, but use such restraint in your language. The repetitions feel effortless.
