A Poem by Anna Marie

There's something in the way the Earth moves,
that leaves me behind; quiet and star-strewn.
Where there's castles with dust in the grooves,
rainy Romanian woods, and winters paling June.

There's something in the way time releases,
that has me frozen; hollow and tranquil.
There's Magnolia flowers with caramel creases,
white-rock cliffs, cold, misty and still.

There's something in the way the wind sighs,
that tells me stories; gentle and solitary. 
There's coastlines with heavy darkening skies,
hot tea, and shivering harbor lights on the sea.

There's something in the way night comes,
that takes me away; breathless and strung.
There's a ballad with homely taps and hums,
grandfather clocks, and something unsung.

Gentle, worthwhile and good words shared. You create places and you left the reader with something to think about. Thank you Anna for sharing the excellent poetry.

The imagery in your piece is absolutely beautiful, Anna. "castles with dusts in the groves, / rainy Romanian woods" feels like something from a dark fairytale. I feel like I'm traveling, on a whim, to all these places you describe. Thanks for sharing! :)
