In Search of…

Am looking for a poem,
a place to call home.
Where words fit feelings
and don’t send me reeling
away because they lack
any reality for this place
in which I live.

This place to which I’ve
given my soul in this
constant search for
wholeness. A world apart
from all others, yet holding
a heart that continues
to beat to its own peculiar
rhythms.

Giving what it can and
sometimes what it can not,
because that is what it learned
long ago, is essential
to living fully. Always seeking
those words which often
fly away like birds to another
place, much like me, seeking
that one face they might call

home.

    Yay, we are Keeping On! I am struggling right now with a submission to an anthology and have never had so much trouble writing a poem. Sigh. Glad you are still with me in the trenches!

    I’m laughing Sherry. In the trenches sounds so far beyond this tentative place I live in. And just remember to breathe, everything is easier and simpler when we breathe, deeply and regularly. That doesn’t mean I won’t help, kiddo. I’m here if you need me.

    Thank you, Mary. Especially for that last sentence. I do believe there are at least a few individuals who dearly wish I’d shut up, lol. I don’t plan on it any time soon.
