jigsaw sky

you say i stole from you
and if so, may i ask
where is it that i hid
this cloud formation,
this dream you had,
of happily ever afters?

beyond our romantic,
purely ridiculous notions,
lies our unique perspective
on our futures taking shape,
yours looking like a rabbit,
mine a sleeping dog lying.

i could no more steal
the clouds from the sky
than i could the songs
that live in your heart,
for it is merely clotted anger
that has stolen your voice.

a no-win, this situation,
for who am i to say
that given the right timing
you too will find the pieces
to create the bigger picture
in the shape of your dreams.

So happy I came back to this place to read the poetry I so longed for. Someday we should lay in the tall grass and use our child-like imaginations as the clouds sil past in the deep blueness of the sky.

Past disillusionment... past hostility... past caring. A bloodless 'goodbye'(or have I missed something?). well writ.

If we can hold onto our dreams, even when we're confused about who we really are, then we can make progress. I like this attitude. Thanks, Lisa.

(((o, anne)))

you write with style, and POWER--very vivid and intense

(((HUGS))) and love,


especially enjoyed

"...i could no more steal
the clouds from the sky
than i could the songs
that live in your heart,
for it is merely clotted anger
that has stolen your voice..."

"clotted anger"...what a line! wish i'd thought of it! *BRAVA!*

I really like this a lot, Anne.
I do have one tiny problem, though, I admit, and it's mine - I strenuously object to small 'i'. ;)
