A Lost Song

A Lost Song short poem

Reprise from the past,
Bringing back missing notes,
In my heart laden,
Of quote and misquotes.

Some are evident of me,
Others remind me of a child,
A mother’s favorite melody,
On go.. or in a mood mild.

A song that defines the soil,
I breathe it in fresh,
A flower like fragrant air,
Entrapping me in mirthful mesh.

A ballad of two pure souls,
Celestial glowing night.
A humming heart admires,
Adolescence’s delight!

A new world unbolts again,
Full of techno drive,
My seldom refreshed memo,
Grows fainter to survive!

A song is complete only,
When it’s sung from heart,
A memory comes full circle,
Times of yore, I’m back to start!

So I hum a little past,
Merry and cheery once more,
Of an era that had me there,
Lost child in me, I thus restore!

I tell you love is but a dream. I vow never again to love, never again to be lost in the soft glow of orange light where love does grow and confound, bringing only confusion. I know now, know all

Swan Song

Like An Old Song

Like An Old Song short poem

Walking in mental fog, you become a swaying tree. In mistiness one becomes lonely like a blackbird. Hollyhocks would wait, till the sun comes out. December rain brings the gift― of sleet on lips. ————————————– Walking in mental fog, you
