To Search for Family

A Poem by Eloha

Getting lost is part of the process

A place for takeoffs, private landings

The laboratory of wildfire

The now arrival of how to make love

We navigate the world in new dimensions

At the junction of what we can allow

For the cherished adjectives

For the peculiar spark

For the chance to get it right, sleep and telling

For the playful enveloping of pliancy

The silk tendons of me as an entity

I am a transaction of silly questions

There is so much to listen to

I feel your entire life with just a look.

I thoroughly enjoyed this read. I don't think I've ever been lost...except perhaps inside my own thoughts or in books. And even then I always safely navigate my way through. I was blessed with a wonderful sense of direction. I don't believe there are silly questions but I do believe there are many silly answers. I suppose I'm the fellow Lobo was describing in the song "A Simple Man"...I do not have a master plan...but I'm still formulating. (smile)

Getting lost is part of learning and then the day comes when we learn to become lost in what we do and love

To be lost in immersion of our art and loved ones, that would be the best!
This is incredibly beautiful. I especially love the line "The laboratory of wildfire".

I'm wondering, though, is your limited use of punctuation a conscious choice? While I was reading I felt a little hurried, and I wonder if the occasional comma (or semi-colon, period, etc.) might help to slow it down? Unless you want it fast-paced, in which case it's perfect.

Hey Anais, I suppose this is hurried without punctuation, and that would be appropriate. Thanks.
