And I~for you

And I~for you

A Poem by Jack...
"

Just having some fun

"

 

And I ~ for you

 

And I ~ cling to a fortress

of endless temptation

with rings made of gold

and a tree built of life

 

Faltering corners

in new found dimensions

a little left over

but so very nice

 

Clinging to them

 

And I ~ search in a fountain

with quarters for feelings

so far neath the waters

my song sings alone

 

On sea shells and posters

of rock concert heroes

with hair like a Sheppard

to call the sheep home

 

Calling to all

 

And I ~ call to the mountains

in echoes of sailors

with waves in the morning

and snowcaps at night

 

Floating horizons

alone on the wishes

that winds will prevail

and make everything right

 

Sailing again

 

And I ~ lean on a valley

of tree lines and saucers

with cups filled with coffee

to taste when it’s due

 

With smiles forever

and words down on paper

with love as my meaning

I write them ~ for you

 

Please hear my call

Wonderful poem, Jack. You always seem to get my imagination working. Honestly, whenever I start doubting in love, I can simply read one of your magnificent poems and I have hope again. :) You give a great imagery in this one, it was a joy reading it. Very well done, dear friend. :)

It's been my experience that someone, maybe not the one you call to, always hears your call. Lovely.

Thank you so very much Pryde for your always kind words to me. I am happy you enjoyed this.
I was a little confused by the "hair like a Sheppard" reference, but for the most part there is an undertone of a lack-lustre sort of feeling in this one. At least that is how I felt its meaning in the early part of the poem. Like there is something available for the taking but, doesn't seem to feel right, or measure up to the standard, so it will exist as an un-attempted possibility. The later half seems more hopeful almost as if there is an enjoyment in vicarious observation of tender beginnings that force one to reminisce. I know I'm probably way off base, but these are the reactions and feelings that I succumbed to while reading this one. Either way, a very emotionally charged piece.
