Hello, have you been sitting long?
Do you know how or why we’re here?
I cannot focus on your face,
But whispered murmurs I can hear..
I don’t remember how I came,
To be here, edge of nothingness,
I can’t recall what came before,
Nor what after, nor now, no less
It is almost past time to leave
I’d think I was already late,
If it wasn’t for the latches
That bolt across the barred gate..
So some more waiting, I guess
Is in order, a little while
A few moments we must wait more
Till the Key-keeper arrives
I have not met him till date, but
Somehow I look forward to
Shaking and taking his hand,
I feel it’s quite the thing to do
There is a vague opacity
Blurring the hemmings of it all
A certain dream like quality
As if the very walls would fall
The alabaster and the gold
Really do seem to catch the light
I wonder where the sky has gone
And why is everything so bright?
Oh wait, I think someone’s approaching
Smiling from the farthest side..
Well, who or what you are, be safe,
I think … it’s finally good bye….
Hello everyone, 🙂
I know I said I’ll try something un-prompted today, but it sparked a poem immediately, so here we are. The prompt for Day Six suggested we write a poem saying good bye, or about saying good bye. It’s a really flexible prompt, I’m sure a lot of you will be able to use it too! 🙂
Also… There’s been a few more poems buzzing around in my head, unrelated to the prompts or NaPoWriMo. I’m not sure if I should post them while the daily poems are running, Will it be poetry overload? Or should I post them too? Do let me know whta you think. 🙂
Sending a fluffy cloud to you!
