What Does It All Mean? - a Poem About Life

Updated on January 6, 2020
Victoria Lynn profile image

Poems about sadness and happiness around holidays and other life events--Victoria Lynn writes about it all.None of this stuff is easy, folks

How do we figure it out?

This is yet another mad rambling in the collection of “The A.M. Poems,” words scribbled in a spiral notebook in the wee hours of the morning.

This poem is foggy and thick, and, even as the author, I’m still trying to decipher what it all means.

I’m certain that it has a lot to do with loss, searching, and the feeling of what really even matters in life.

Thinking, Meditating . . . .


What Does It All Mean?

Cascade of hair,

With fallen rain

And morning glories,

On forgotten memories

And lonely loves,

On golden moments

And empty hearts.

A fountain

Of life-like thoughts

Through the soul

To the mind

In random swiftness

To slowly penetrate

The fog of confusion.

Cover thy face.

Hide from living.

Whether remembered or forgotten,

Whether ripe or barren,

Whether rainbows or thorns,

We no longer can

Tell the difference.

      Ardie--Sometimes with this poem, I'm not really sure! I just felt that I was searching, trying to figure out what matters. I agree that poetry is open to individual interpretation. Thanks for reading this. I sure do appreciate that!!!!!

      Beautiful Victoria :) It makes me think of loss but overcoming and sadness with life moving on. I don't know if that's what you meant to portray with your words but that's the beauty of poetry...we can all sorta make our own assumptions about it based on our lives and what's taking place at the moment.

      Oh, my goodness, saddlerider, it is you! I MUST put a quill by my bed! I do carry around a pad in my purse now, so that I'll always be ready for a thought--and capture it. You have no idea what it means to me for a poet like you to say words like "artistically fluent," and the words about the spider weaving her silken web. I have had this and other poems hidden away in a box for over 20 years. Thank you for those words. Maybe I will reach 100 wonderful hubs one day, as well. And thank you for pushing all those buttons!!! haha Cheers!

      Some of our best work comes to us in the Wee hours of the morning, it's important to have a quill and pad beside your bedside or near you where you sit.

      These ramblings you speak of are artistically fluent and you weave them like a spider weaves her silken web in the basking of morning sunlight. Simply beautiful, Bravo, rated UP Awesome and all the other buttons pushed as well:0))
