Balboa Street

A Poem by MsJewel
"

~ just a scribble ~

art ~ Vidan

 

 

 

 

The trees on Balboa Street are bare…

 

It’s January,

                                    the new year upon us

 to some, it may seem insignificant

on this unimportant morning

you sleepy eyed and tousled

and me…

                                                tangled in quiet unrest

waiting for dawn to warm the magnolias

in silken white

and ivory scented hues

                        as birds awaken in sheltered nests

                         and children appear

                                  giggling

                             at lover’s walking, hand in hand

                                     captured with the beauty

of lacy blooms, glistening

                        

I look to you and sigh….

                     the trees on Balboa Street are bare

Julie, this is gorgeous.
I see two meanings here, one that the love doesn't live there anymore, though the roots are still firmly planted, the other (preferred interpretation) those bare trees are naked, vulnerable and ready for love to come round again. Either way it's stunning.

That sounds like some street. Where I live it could be cabbage palms

Cabbage palms, magnolias...beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say....

Such a delicious, quiet feeling expression and impressions of thought, that is very simple in its feel, yet so eloquent in quality. Balboa Street would be a nice place to visit sometime.
Thank you for allowing us to read this lovely offering.

Romantic poem in which emotions of a person who want affection, are described so beautifully. It is very beautiful.

I'm thrilled you enjoyed it. Thank you my sweet friend :) Julie
I see below that many have interpreted this in different fashions, to me I only see a beauty that can come from accepting winter and what it brings and the hope that spring will arrive soon. Yes, there is a sadness, but a sadness that can easily change once the sun returns smiles to the earth. (if that makes any sense). Beautiful Julie.

I like your interpretation Will. :) Julie
I dont think I have ever used the word: "angst" before
but I am pretty sure it applies here.

I along with so many others can read so much in your words
That are almost heart breaking wistful
Yet there still seems to be hope for some kind of change come springtime.

Very powerful and deep.
