Poetry Sunday ~ Lost

Job 21: 3 Suffer me that I may speak; and after that I have spoken, mock on.

I feel like I am a rock
sticking out of the sand.
A tired misplaced object
in a foreign land.

I feel like I'm a cactus
on the wetlands shore.
Lost amid the foliage,
of things gone on before.

I feel I am an empty limb
no digits to complete.
No hand to touch, the arm to reach,
Two legs without my feet.

I feel I am dark matter
In the blazing sun-dripped sky.
A bird flung high into a cloud,
No wings for me to fly.

I feel as though I'm a snow- white dove,
Flocked amid the geese.
I see them fly north and south,
Whereas I just seek peace.

Make me feel like I'm a song,
a rhythm to your beat.
Hold me in your wandering thoughts.
Where truth and love can meet.

Hey, I liked that.

Beautiful, Joni! And sad also. You've captured the emotion with vivid images.

Take care,
June

Raven said...

Yes, lovely images! Thanks for the beautiful poem. I'm sad tonite. Trojan virus took out my puter. I'm trying to save what I can, but it's a vicious thing and has gone straight for my vital files. I may have lost one of my email addresses too. Argh.

Please send some hopeful thoughts my way!

Well thank you Ana!
I try to keep a rhythm in everyone's heart as they read my poetry and I think that's what makes poetry so heartwarming and fulfilling is when a person reads and FEELS. :-)

Thanks for visiting and welcome back! :-)
