There's something about poetry that saves me… ~ Martin Espada
Once in a while, my desires bring together.~Mary
Oh, this is lovely... peaceful. Thanks for taking part, Mary.
Desires divided by water... that's a cry to echo down the ages.
Way to handle the whole perspective issue. I had to borrow the train tracks. ;_) This is admirable in its clarity and haunting in its sense of separation.
I agree with Hedgewitch...haunting is the word. And hauntingly beautiful.K
I'll just say one thank you to all of you. I appreciate you reading and commenting, and Laurie thanks for the interesting writing topic. And Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
This is full of pain...of wanting to bridge that divide, but there is nothing to build on
I have no words just appreciation for beauty
Haunting...to swim the depths of desire and not find fulfilling or reach the one who stays away.(Hugs)Indigo
So much to think about in these words!
So close yet so far, curse that divide.
Three lines as deep as the ocean that divides. A longing two by four of a shorty. Hits me square in the chest. Loved it.
Thanks so much Hero.!
Deep longing felt in this, brevity here is powerful, other Mary. :)
Thank you Hannah.
An incurable longing (regret?) Very dramatic.
Thank you Margaret, not too dramatic I hope?
Haunting...yes that is a good description.And as to the tone of my last poem,a fun romp through poetic misdirection:-)
Thanks Wander. Hope you didn't mind the bunnies.
Don't know what the toads prompt was, but this resonates beautifully with me.
Lydia - check out the link for Imaginary Garden with Real Toads. Good site, good people. And thank you!
We've all been there, Mary - on opposite sides of a "waste of seas" Lovely, sad and true.
Thank you Doctor (she says facing east and waving).
