Someone's watching over you. Drifting in, Drifting out, Sometimes, you can feel her. She's right beside you. Her hand holds you still. Her kisses keep you grounded. She speaks, But quietly. She knows that you are strong. And you breath. It's hard. But you breath. And we all stand behind you. Holding you up, Lifting you onward, Loving you. And still, she's beside you. Laughing as she finally hears you say her name.
Grace shines in the sky, Promising spring from winter, Bare branches remain.
This week’s haiku/tanka prompt from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie asks that “you carefully analyze an emotion within you, attribute a word to it and then let it out in the nature in the form of a haiku or tanka”. Reading through my past blog posts, I see a common theme of hope threading through my thoughts. Many times, I find that my hope is, in some ways, unrewarded. And while I do not think that hope is in any way a useless endeavour, sometimes things can still feel, well, … hopeless.
Joy greets the first light, Birds join the celebration. Sleep escapes my arms
People gather here Like ants, they fulfill their roles. Each day is the same.
Softness fills the sky Quiet thoughts enter our space, Together again ...
This week’s Daily Post Writing Challenge is to write a piece of poetry. I haven’t written poetry in awhile, so I’m afraid I’m quite rusty, but I hope you like it!
Breath in, breath out One foot steps in front of the other Each heartbeat echoes the one that came before Breath in, breath out Eyes close at night, Eyes open in the morning Breath in, breath out My day begins And, as ever, my day ends I have lived every moment before Experiences, Recycled, Relived, Reinvented ... They move me not And I wither Breath in, breath out And now my feet are still Rooted in place, with roots that grow deep They dig into the ground and keep me frozen in place Breath in, breath out My heart is racing faster My heartbeats are chasing each other Pulled forward by some undeniable attraction Breath in, breath out Eyes close and Little explosions of colour against a backdrop of darkness Eyes open and I am blind, but then the scene comes sharply into focus For the first time, I am awake.
