Salt

Salt

A Poem by Ana B.

Fear was sleeping in all my bones.

Why did I wake it up?

Preludes to a punch made holes

But didn’t stop that lump

 

From breaking the thought

That was pouring moonlight

In my hands, leaving me awed.

And while I was chasing the night

 

And signs were warning me to stop

Shadows were stalking my mind

…not enough light to allot

to the lost ones - those of my kind,

 

Looking for drops of beauty

And missing the ocean between waves.

Beautiful artwork and powerful thoughts. I felt the struggle to see and to find what was needed.

Thank you very much Pete :))
The peaks are so far above the norm and sometimes seem so few and the valleys we're left to live within are so very below what we so really, really wish to have in our existence...

Your words are sad but - beautifully laid. Seems from one point to another we all pass through a time when we 're oblivious to or of the obvious. Why are we so trapped in the past, look forward around corners and yet... YET, miss those colours and shadows around us as if we don't care about them? Your words tell all, both statement and question.. and both only you can put so succintly. Tis ,pre than good to see you.

The accompanying picture is ideal... lovely.

True - sometimes live is pretty monochromatic....so many of those shades, but only of one color....... read more

You are more and even more welcome. :)
'missing the ocean between waves,' is the line that captured me fully in this thought provoking poem. So often in life it is what happens; we chase rainbows,make our dreams, (both so essential,) but the beauty we desire is almost always there for the taking.

Really enjoyed this.

I did Ana. Keep well and happy.
if we have the courage, we will find where the beauty is...we cannot sleep through the fear or because of it...we need to attack life with gusto...
