Truly, Truly – a #freeverse #poem by Leona

Prayers my heart starts to

mumble as the dew

forms graceful drops

across the eyelashes

of the late summer trees

It sprang to mind the hopeful

and expectant posture of

a bride in waiting


oil filled lanterns

how we see the changing times

only to be reminded that

in life there is death

in love there is loss

truly truly say to you

the barren garden will

blossom as the noon day


creeps along the ground

there in the slanting rays

it is easy to remember that

goodness and favor

does come to those

who wait as the tides

change and the earth


Have I finally found my home?

        I know how that feels. I am half a person when I’m not writing – or not writing and posting on the blog. I always wonder why I stop but I think it’s Ike breathing – sometimes you have to go away and breathe in so you can breather out. You write beautifully and that after al, is a cure for most of what ails us. It’s like nothing is so bad or bland or boring, that we can’t write about it and the writing cures the emotion and sets it free.

        Yes! I love that last phrase “writing cures the emotion and sets it free.” This perfectly captures how I interact with writing and blogging. I look forward to reading more of your writings as well! It is good to know we are not along in our endeavor to process the world and share our thoughts!
