In-between Time

In-between Time

A Poem by ...

I wanted to calm the restlessness

in the tree tops

moving like a pair of empty hands

with nothing to do

while an opaque sky

arranged twigs in the water.


The flames have mellowed over the years,

their shadows

between sleep and wakefulness

where all is just a murmur--

a time ripple

in a passing static that does not harm.


I try to hear the music the light plays

on the water now,

the flat wave adagio

on the back of a stream,

and let it carry me to a place

where the stillness opens its arms

to the wayward waft of leaves

setting into its serene


My mind goes with it,

the part that finds the gauged holes

in a landscape,

that says that idle fingers,

and the things that slip through them

are just a part of nature;

that a squall in the wind

that taunts the flame

has no mind of what made it stir

Author's Note

...
I often jot down thoughts, just random thoughts, so I don't forget them..
So anyway, this is a patchwork of some of those thoughts and I still haven't felt a title for it yet. Thanks for reading.
P.s. thank you, Jacob, for inspiring the title :)

A amazing poem dear Lynn.
"I try to hear the music the light plays

and let it carry me to a place

The above lines. Good wish and need. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

It doesn't feel or read like a patchwork. It flows through thoughts with engaging wisdom.

Thank you for that Lynn. I've been journeying.
Soo... Jacob already got the chance for title?? Damn! I might have been too slow! Anyways, next time. There's always a next time. Lol

Kinda very coloring eyepatch... I mean, "patchwork" you come up with. Randolph's random thoughts. Well kissed waft. Sophisticated choice of wordy trail. Bountiful stillness of tailored dream. Nice & fair & fine cocktail of zippered toll. Alonside, as beautiful as always as you reluctantly are or confirmingly ev'r been. It's, you know, always worth caprurin' thoughts, & saving 'em & dreamiestly decorating the worth of mind with suchlike flavoury of "Cleveland" verse to recall what's never so installed to life: Fairy - in b/w time. Well, I must admire Jacob - the cacock - for suggesting you a better title for your poetry that I don't think anybody else could do so finely. Suited with ur poem! Looking forward to reading you, "Lady Waterfall".

:) Thank you so much for such an enthusiastic review
Wow, love this poesy!
It has amazing imagery. It has a feeling like it goes from being simply poetic to story telling narration at the end of every stanza.The last stanza had a awesome ending, summarizing the poesy to an indication of a higher intelligence. This is what i got out of it. Loved it!

Its great losing oneself in thought surrounded by the sounds of nature, all alone, sort of refreshing when you are embraced by what nature has to offer be it a simple breeze, a murmur in the trees. A lovely write lynn. Like a nice cuppa this is!
