dana shared a poem

i read a poem today, dana found it--and shared it and touched my soul---she saw my heart and stole the fact, that i had hidden such a part of me for so long--

i sparkled and shined as i read the poet's stir and swallowed my emotion so deep down, i thought i would float--i don't know where and i don't know when--but it will return and it may be different and it may not be good--but it will be there---standing and holding out it's arms to me and saying--i do sort of remember you---you look a little older, but your longings sound the same-


i read a poem today and it transported me back and although my feelings could betray me and it be only this instant, of renewed hope and gratitude that come of this----i still know, the poets soul is restless and it bends and tears at my being to let it be

  1. Poems, like so many things are mere triggers, reminders of who we were, what we were and what we aspired to.

    Just a single word can act as a trigger. Music haunts me more than anything else. There are a multitude of songs that remind me of moments in my life, good and bad.

    I can't win. If it's a bad memory it's too late, I've had that thought and now it will stay with me all day. If it's a good memory it is bittersweet knowing that time has passed.

    1. oh yeah i know what you mean--when i actually watched the video of the poem dana had shared today--it made me want to write poetry again---and it kinda made me sad, like i had wasted so much time not writing--but that is probably just the way it was meant to be---

  4. This is exactly why I don't read poetry. It takes me places I don;t want to go. But a deep and beautiful post nonetheless!

  5. Now, we are looking forward to you sharing your poem with us! Sounds like it will be a cathartic piece, or pieces, I think there will probably be more than one. Time spent not writing isn't wasted if it's time spent learning life stuff- it's the research part of the project! And, wishing you a belated Happy Birthday :-)
