Refreshing The Fields (poem)

Updated on March 19, 2014

Stop

Calling through what use to be

Searching for some memory

Embers of a mystery

Down forgotten streets

-

Stop

Wandering forgiving mist

Following those things dismissed

Wonderings which still persist

Pictures washed ashore

-

We are not there anymore

One more corner turned a while ago

An instant destined for the wind

Sweetness refreshing the fields

-

Stop

Gathering up the leaves of why

Which left the tree to kiss the sky

Strange how dreamer’s bodies lie

In a jealous world

-

We are not there anymore

In those footprints paved by someone else

Which showed their purpose after all

Pathway refreshing the fields

-

Stop

Calling through soft use to be

Falling on what eyes can’t see

Stalling in complacency

Of moments to regret

-

We are not there anymore

Building stairways to another door

Wishing for the dreams amid the clouds

And rains refreshing the fields

Of possibilities

      You paint the conundrum of life, M..

      Once experienced - it's sooo hard to just STOP...

      an intelligent mind is a dual edged sword, isn't it?

      you capture it perfectly, as usual..
