Alone

the allure of peach hues
leaves of seasons past, remain in view
sleek limbs rooted somewhere deep
symbolic of what I need, yet
find within myself, confusing, I know
simple answer, he must be wiser
i’m left terrified for him
and okay inside my mind alone

  1. Beautifully spoken…
    “sleek limbs rooted somewhere deep
    symbolic of what I need, yet
    find within myself, confusing”
    How appropriate is this poetic verse…?

  2. This one leaves me feeling the complexities of life ~ and no matter how exhausting it may be trying to keep up, finding that place of refuge, to plant yourself is invaluable. Without roots, a drifting mind will never find the answer it seeks. I like how this poem got me thinking πŸ™‚

    • Here’s a good time to thank you again for being here. I feel heard when you’re around. Yep. Exactly, Mr. Collis. I love how you, once again, make sense of these feelings I have and place inside a poem, because I do not know how to articulate my thoughts in the moment, but you do. There’s the difference between you and I. We compliment each other so well. Pretty cool…

    • I adore this angle, Debbie. Quite soothing for me. I’ve walked past it many times and my eyes lend their way to this spot every time. So strange. I decided after so many moments I’d need to take a picture. Roots, indeed. Just waiting for the wings. Thanks for reading, my friend. Hope your weekend is going well.

Tell Me, Please...
