FALLING, I AM...

FALLING, I AM...

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

Sometimes in dreams we realize we're meant for another place...

"










































Falling, I am…

why do I feel so far from myself

woven  in bands of memory

thoughts soaring by

floating wingless

traipsing, trudging tramping

past countless things

of cabbages and kings

and breathless recollections

near perfect reflections

in mirrors with no faces

how I see such days

in shadows they call to me

from lullabies to lull me

into dreamish Neverlands

just out of reach from golden hands

why  do I feel so far from myself

falling, I am…

Excellent poem, the sensation spans the scale from thrill to soaring panic. Loosing more of us as we fall.

how I see such days
in shadows they call to me
from lullabies to lull me

Love these lines here, this is such a wonderful write,
Your words are poetic, in a way that reflections in a mirror
have no faces, Very clever writing...enjoyed

This is pure beauty. You reached out to me today, this day, and didn't even know it. I'm not sure I ever landed from the fall.

So simple are your thoughts. So laced with a hidden hope, do you know that? Even amongst weeds of tangled darkness, I always see the seeds of hope in ever word you write. I'm going to go plant them. :)

Powerful and worthwhile flow of words. You made the reader feel and understand the falling into places and memories. Sometime it seem. We are destine to become what we become? Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

very fine rhyme and rhythm says i ..yet free and flowing ... enjoyed the language but this:
"of cabbages and kings" in particular stands out to me .. oh those dreams .. even those we think we remember are only snatches of pieces here and there ... i am fond of dreaming .. even those that are unsettling ... and that place between dreaming and waking ... is a precious place the feels so far from ones' self ..nice read for me Owly

thank you so much...and same to you :)
It's amazing how you weave beautiful words that match the picture so much.
You're so artistic and so is this piece.
When we are lost and falling and there's no hope left, then there are breathless relections in mirror with no faces.
Oh I loved it. It relates so much.

my pleasure
The poem speaks to me of loss, of shadowy dreams, of falling as a feather through time...It speaks to me of the uselessness of sand sifting through a fist...we can't hold on however hard we try...Your beautiful words touch my soul.
