Meadows with no clocks

Meadows with no clocks

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

There are journeys that leave no footprints…

"































A heron hovering

flighting in sunlit skies

winged breath in angel visions

there are journeys with no footprints

feathered wings in life’s flight over meadows with no clocks

only the trafficked flitter of butterflies

only the roaring call of songbirds

how the soul seeks rest

songs of the Sabbath

no warring factions

feathering fractions

Sing me songs of the meadowed millpond mirrors

of melted anxieties drip dripping down

tell me what life should feel like

surely not this over-burdened fight

not this darkened screeching night

I want the feeling of lifting flight

soaring over worlded wonders

breathing cloud crystals

fly me over meadows with no clocks

time there rides on a heron’s wings…

Outstanding and beautiful write.
It took me on an odyssey. What a soothing piece to read. I loved these lines:
there are journeys with no footprints
feathered wings in life’s flight over meadows with no clocks
only the trafficked flitter of butterflies
only the roaring call of songbirds
The imagination of this journey is truly wonderful.

i like the motif of clocks being absent - it really brings out optimism that is desired to be brought out from your words

"tell me what life should feel like
surely not this over-burdened fight
not this darkened screeching night
I want the feeling of lifting flight"
In this journey of life, a time comes when you get exhausted of walking on the same path and that's when you really need someone alongside you to tell you what it's really like and then you don't even care if there aren't any footprints 'cause you don't want to ever go back...
This is a really thought-provoking poem (atleast for me) and deep too! I loved reading this!

This rolls along so beautifully, like riding beneath the angels wings when I was admitted DOA when I lost my baby. I saw the pinions stuck into the flesh I was that tight to her. I had so many blood transfusions to save me, I must be every nationality in the world. Valentine

Reminded me of the paintings of Arthur Rackham and the land of the Sidhe or farie. Time moves differently there. Excellent piece, lyrical and gentle. Like a summer stream.
