"Haruumph..."

A Poem by Chris
"

Yep THAT is the title

"

“Haruumph…”

 

Haruumph… life so far huh?  well, there HAS been snow - a bit.  And a lil sun - on occasion.  Rain by the bucket, measurable cold and S H O P P I N G!  Even window shopping is - IS - allowed, if just to draw the eyes to the faces of others looking on in desire and wish!  Eating out is an adventure in affording and hopefully not disappointing in reality.  Reading is as always a diversion best left to lightness and zombie apocalypses BUT music!  Music holds thoughts of sharing during the silences after.  Hmmm… life - continues… the alternative is unacceptable.

 

Do you drive?  

Are you driven?  Everywhere?  

Go …Anywhere?

Walk in the sun?

The dark?  Moonlight, noonlight -

ever aflight…

Gaze from others' shadows?

Live others' dreams?  Lives?

Ever yours? …Never?

…ever?

 

Ever …Wish by-the-stars,

wish for stars…

wish-at-all

BE …as all… or just as one?

…even none?

 

Stand in the rain?

Perhaps …ARE the rain?

Breathe a lover's breath - shared

though like-as-not unshared

but you DO taste …you DO

taste …LOVE… in the music…

of life.

 

Do you SEE -

where you are, were, will be?

Do you remember?

Will you …dance

with the faire?

Just once …once…

as so very, very few have

or ever will -

and share that moment

as only YOU can -

if not for you

…then for me?

 

Dear…

…for me - because you can.

 

Chris

I love the transient feeling that this poem projects. It really makes you stop to imagine all the things temporary and wonderful; I adore that. Lovely work here! You're quite the poet!

Stopping by your page is like popping in for coffee. Soothing, warm, with just the right amount of bite to cream ratio. I've missed you. It's been too long.

I liked the energy and the drive of the words in the poetry. You touched on many subjects in the poetry Chris. Last lines made the poem complete. I agree. We decide our journey and our place. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

love the title, first off

the poem. it is like making the most of a rainy day.
the day we save our pennies for
and the music, life is music
and you can hear it the tapping of the rain or the tapping of fingers
the sirens on the street or the rumble of the train
i sort of read this as a don't let the rain bring you down, jump in it and get wet
just my thoughts

Good thoughts to share.
hmmmmm i feel uplifted and a certain exuberance in your words ...great title! i like the paragraph intro as everyone is so sick of waiting for this years elusive spring ... and one more ice and snow storm crashes down :{
as i read i take a taste of various things i can do to counter the doldrums ... some philosophical thoughts to live by ...a dab of glorious nature not to forget nor let pass by our moments ...and for me..a final hint of a loved one not present physically ... but memories can unite us no matter the time nor distance .. very much enjoyed reading ... well done says i!

Indeed, we need to be in the moment...enjoy the rain or the sun or the wind....whatever is available. We need to laugh, to cry, to feel. The older we get, the more we realize this....enjoy whatever life has to offer because some day it will not even offer that. I liked this, Chris...a unique view on life. Lydi**

the older I get , the more I appreciate everything, the little things I never noticed are now wonderments to my eyes.My imagination dances to life's music and and i savour the moments instead of rushing through them; but of course we only do these things when we realize time is not on our side ..
