In the Wild.

In the Wild.

A Poem by Daisy
"

A soul's struggle to survive through the storms in the woods of the heart and mind.

"


It's been a long way,
And there you are!
My green canopy!

Bathed in dew,
Storm-hit thrice last night,
And yet...
Yet you sway in the morning breeze!
My Holy Mary!
How you bask in this sunlit crease!

And they say a storm destroys.
If that be true and you be wise,
Then why she bled and suffered thrice ?
Look how her wings are set ablaze,
Yet see her feet that merrily sways.

It swooped and smashed,
And cranked the tunes,
It swapped at your brows,
And grassy dunes.
With your feet and its merry swing,
You held the pieces of your broken wing,
With a life to live and a song to sing,
You knew you are more of a human being.

I wonder if you are fake!
For my world is fake too,
Then so am I,
And so are you.

Yet they say a storm destroys.
Then hold your faith if you are wise,
For she hath bled and suffered thrice.
Without a fall, without a tilt,
Without a wither beneath,
For faith it is that finally turned,
The storm into her sheath.

But Hark! Behold!
Does every happy face have a reason to cheer?
Or is it but an art to hide that dreaded fear?
Who is asking?
Who is answering?
We never stop to hear.
For my world out there is in the wild too my dear.

the storms of the heart, the refuge in the forest of another...

survival...if we are both fake, then we are kidding ourselves that we are true to love...but i think those lines in the poem...are saying if you are fake, i will be fake with you...we need each other, one way or another.

'Then hold your faith if you are wise' Not all faith comes from the church, nor is it necessarily religious. We all need faith in ourselves or we begin to doubt our abilities. We all need that safe place within to replenish our souls. Good write.

dear Daisy... "You held the pieces of your broken wing"
is a beautiful line. I have found myself in that position.
As I have said before... your writing reminds me of
the talent of Leonard Cohen in "Hallelujah".
"You sway in the morning breeze. My holy Mary".
A lovely poem. truly, Pat

Thank You for the lovely feedback :)
I also had to re-read this, to see if I could fully grasp the message . . . altho there are parts I can't put together, it doesn't really matter, becuz overall the writing is enjoyable & it leaves the reader with something to ponder. I like the way this could apply to nature (which is my own sanctuary) or it could be a person that feels as soothing as nature can. I also like the way it conveys how nature (be it a place or a person) is sturdy & steady, when it comes to the storms of life.

I found this beautiful to read and was moved by it but once I finished I had to read it again because I didn't fully understand it. The tree, the swing all seemed so real but yet you question its reality and your own. I really liked what I read but fear it went over my head and my ability to understand. Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap!

A very interesting story in the poetry.
Yet they say a storm destroys.
"Then hold your faith if you are wise,
For she hath bled and suffered thrice.
Without a fall, without a tilt,
Without a wither beneath,
For faith it is that finally turned,
The storm into her sheath."
The above lines are true. The storm is the sheath of Nature. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
