is it sunday already?

Moody Sunday


What's in a mood?

Swinging
here to there
Never staying to rest long
In her home away
from home

Swayed
by the weather?
I would seriously ponder
that thought

Tempered by fate
Weathered by change

Not alone on this path

As she swims through a
cluttered mind
Exhaling bubbles of life
Into the unforgotten state
of sweet tasting
Clarity



this is a poem i wrote last year... and since it's sunday and since i found it today... thought it was appropriate.

For a minute I thought you were making fun of me. Nice poem! I'm still pondering it, though.

Yes, a lovely poem. Do write more in this way, short lines insteadof sentences, immediate thoughts about your life away from your American home and of course your feelings about being a young mother.

I like it, very sensitive and soulful. Freeverse is lovely.

It kind of reminds me of my situation...
