On Jutting Edge/ Flowers Waiting

Updated on July 1, 2013

I stood alone ..my mind so free

on jutting edge.. it was meant to be

Looking out ...among the land,

wishing you were there

just to hold my hand

Swollen river.. of lost hope and tears

flowing downward...taking all my fears

curving .. bending ..which way to go

my heart flows softly... down below

On jutting edge.. I make my stand

wishing I ...could change this land

A beauty deep and colored scene

all I want ..to do is scream


Flowers look across the sky... in a vase and wonder why

the pussy willows... they do weep

while all the others, they do sleep

while sitting... waiting for the one

the love that comes...only from the sun

Looking as I sat... among my friends

The rocks... we always make amends

We see the beauty... from the docks

as the time slowly... tick tocks

The sea in and out does flow...

covering .. filling...our lonely view

while we sit and wait only for you

the moss grows thick...upon our souls

hard round rocks... we sit like ghouls

      Been hearing the news of the flooding in Colorado, so just checking in to see if you are okay this day. See where you have not published in a couple of days.

      God bless, Faith Reaper

      Dearest Faith .. thank you for your kind comments my friend. I thought you would like this , actually it was just one poem i wrote after seeing the picture and then seen the other painting of the flowers in the vase, which inspired me to write the other poem . it was a contrast of moods . Well... now i have to try to write one that will be your next favorite , but come back and visit this one all you want. ..

      Love and hugs ..

      Jackie .. thank you for the visit and the comment.

      a double entendre I tied together after seeing pictures Salvador Dali painted with many pictures within a picture.
