Untitled poem...been working on it!

Started by Anonymous on 11 May 2018 at 11:55

Adrift (drowning?) alone in a choppy sea

of negative thoughts, overwhelming,

wondering where have the stars, rainbows,

sunshine, pink blossom and poppies gone?

Just bluebells wait for me.


No paintings no poems for months, retreated

from the bitter cold winds and rain into a

cacoon of warmth and protection.


Diminished, a disappearing non entity

vanquished into oblivion as the years go by.


Is there a sun rising in the distance?

Will it venture nearer and brighter?

Will the tide gently lap the water's edge

    What a beautiful poem...which will resonate with many on here, I'm sure. Thank you so much for letting us all read it - and I'm sensing some fluttering of hope after a difficult time...

    Warm wishes
