Lamentations

Leave a comment

By chance, someday, where a canopy of foliage shelters an abandoned pathway and the wind, sighing like an exasperated mother, rises to wail lamentations through towering trees standing guard for drooping flowers crying tears of dew, I may meet you.

Where a weeping poet writes, tied by lines and scrabbling among words that cry I sight the mortal roped by grief, where flowing rivers moan the silent meditations of mermaid queens, their melancholy riding the breeze like an empty surfboard wafting over swells, I may see you.

Where a listless sea kisses shore for sympathy, offering bouquets of fronds to comfort me, where waves roll over in dying agony groaning requiems for our friendship lost in love, drifting like flotsam, I may reach you.

 

Note: An oldie poem, first published eons ago in a modified form in my Mindfield poetry collection.
