Just Thinking


Poem Commentary

Although I usually prefer a more loosely flowing form, sometimes it just doesn't come out that way.  

Just Thinking

Just Thinking

The chill seeps damply all around
Intensifying pale Apollo's frown.
Cannot the names of martyrs be forgot?
Or is it now for us to wonder what

Becomes of those who fled the world before
The rest of us could knock upon their door?
I in my dissentient soul-of-soul
Care nothing for their rambling control.

We cannot question all we ever see
Yet somehow must discover where the key
Waits to fill the darkness (is it reason?)
With the bursting forth of every season.

I lost you as time melted on and on
So the searching goes (you are not gone!)
Until the star of the eastern way
Is lost to the blossoming light of day...

Thank you, thank you... so glad you liked it. It is a rather different one for me, it's true.

This is poignant and pondering all at once. I enjoyed the searching part and the questions posed..........



This is a different style for me, I don't usually find such form, so I am glad to hear you like it. Thanks...

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
