The sun high in the sky
My wind chime
Captures a gentle breeze
Sings a song complete
The “what” of the song
Is not known
There are no words
To describe the feeling
Traverse the streets
Stone faces stare
Clouds bank high
Above the mountains
You leave the room
I am alone
Empty without you

Solitude, pleasure itself. so often have this quality–isolating or diminished when their offerings cannot be shared. Thanks for joining us, Annell.
Yes, you are right….and there seems to be a certain ”altitude” to it. xoxo
Thanks so much Hedgewitch, your words are true. xoxo
The sounds and feelings of all things being ‘just out of reach’ rings true throughout your poem….bringing it to the rightful conclusion in your last lines. Loved it.
Thank you for your comment Vivian.
My backyard is full of wind chimes. I often hear the one my dad made. It sings of love and the emptiness I feel without him. Beautiful wrting
Yes, it is said, “Spirit is in the wind.” I like to think the ones who aren’t here, are speaking to me, through the song of the wind chimes. I am thinking your Dad is speaking to you, tell you how much he misses you too! It is hard for spirit to fill what is empty, but maybe his music does a little bit?
Thanks for your comments.
I also think candles carry your wishes and dreams into the universe.
NICELY DONE, ANNELL – Particularly love the last three lines! I subscribed to word press yesterday – got one thing up – want to do another but having a time trying todo – also, could I include a painting with the words as well sometimes? I suppose I could try and get info from wordpress but wanted to speak with you anyway. Glad to reconnect…………. >
I wondered the other day, when you commented, could that be you? So glad to reconnect. If there is anything I can help you with, let me know.
I just recently went back to WordPress, because they no loner notify you, if you have a comment.
So glad you are setting up your blog.
Yes, please include your paintings!!! It isn’t hard to do.
