Poetry: My Entries for the Day Dreamer Contest
The first three actually WON (I know, amazing!) Alas the last three did not….
The contest was set up in categories and the poems were inspired by pictures which I don’t own, so….
Winter, Autumn, Spring,
Now they are
Are they now
Spring, Autumn, Winter
Sings for me
Sweetly silver blue
Takes away my sadness
And reminds me that I am
Never really on my own
But simply one in a universe
Ever flowing with possibilities.
Wither have you been and from whence did you come?
In the dead of night to appear, scratching at my window
So opportunely and so loudly with your tales of another place.
Did you think of me while you were gone or remember that I waited
Only looking to the sky in hopes to see my only friend return?
My dearest one, i know you did not, and neither do I blame you.
Only wish that I, still in my youth, could join your flights of fancy
Free upon a summer breeze down canyons whose names
Are not yet recorded in the many tongues of man and so you
Go again, and yet I do not mind because as I have grown
Ever do i see that to love something is to set it free.
Flickering, shimmering, glowing
Burning, fleeting, eternal, freezing
Biting, screaming, encompassing
On pages golden
Memories in the making
In my hand, so fragile frail,
and yet I hold you
enchanted by such pure light
A love lost in the dark night
though entwined are souls
whose hearts echo the same words
regardless of kith or kin
Kindred spirits now
Song of the moment – The Night – Disturbed
