Jingle Poetry and Mosaic Monday


Potluck Poetry for Monday



A Closer Look

Where are you, my heart?
Where are you, my soul?
I cannot find you any more.
I looked at him and I looked at her.
No, that's not what I want to see.

I searched down deep and poked around.
It hurt so much I turned back.
Halfway back I looked at nee.
No, not Mrs. or Miss could I see.

I only see what I had tried to be.
As I backed out of the hole I dug,
I heard myself say
"Here I am!"
"Look at me!"

"Here I am?"
Where did that spring from, this searching day?
I looked asky and I looked aground.
Nowhere could I be found.

I turned and saw a face aglow,
Absent of all worry and woe.
Because I looked just when I did,
Straight ahead.
Now I am found.

Vee said...

So much cleaning and pruning to be done this spring. It helps to be able to get out and work in the garden. I really understood a lot of the descriptions in your poem...the turning back because it was too hurtful to continue. I admire a poet!

Lavender Cottage said...

I enjoyed seeing some colour in your garden and noticed you cut your hydrangeas right back too.

Enjoyed the jingle and the photos. You are fortunate to have spring bloom color; we awoke Sat AM to a blanket of white which did melt by late afternoon, still it does nothing for spring flowers. Daffodils along the garden fence are almost ready to open and the green leaves are up on our tulips. Now if they don't retreat or give up in our wintry mix days! I love the way you change you blog.
