Wishful & Waiting

Photo by –FlyTrapMan–



Dark thoughts rollicked in my mind –

ones that created such havoc inside.

They kept me moaning and awakening –

murmuring all throughout the night.

Quiet! I would cry; shutting my eyes

but to no avail, since dark thoughts

do as they please and never compromise.

The next morning, the sky was clear,

but the murkiness within hadn’t disappeared.

Taking a breath so deep, it reached

down into my very being and took grasp

of the misery, the dankness, and the duress.

I exhaled with all my might and watched

as those portentous thoughts spilled out.

Nowhere to go, they floated to the sky

where they stare like ominous specters –

wishful and waiting to come back inside.

  1. Bonsoir
    Le Bonheur est une plume
    La plus légère qui soit
    Jamais assez belle pour toi
    Ma Plume je la partage avec toi
    Le Bonheur se cueille comme une fleur
    Il faut prendre soin avec prΓ©caution
    Il faut attention que celui-ci ne se fane pas
    Par ces petits mots de Bonheur
    Passe une agrΓ©able soirΓ©e
    Prends bien soin de toi
    Bises , Bernard belle semaine

    Je t’offre un petit cafΓ© ou tisane

  2. I love that last three lines. Also, WordPress is wonky. Somehow it unfollowed your blog (not the first time it’s happened to me, either). And you know I never would!

  3. The cloud on the left does look like a ghost, but not for long. Should I leave the ominous mood of this fine photo/poem combination intact? Nah.

             Wishful and waiting,
             dark thoughts float high in the sky.
             The wind scatters them.
