Left Behind


there was a time
when we played
in the meadows
of glory

you and i

we surfed and danced
in the summer breeze
and sang out our song
of love

solitary souls forever joined
we dived and feasted
throughout our days
unaware of the coming storm
darkening our horizon

can you see me
do you hear my cry

i call out to you
but my words echo
off the wall of hope

the winds have shifted

and i have been
left
behind

Amazing verse and thoughts. It reminded me of a pelican that stayed all winter guarding the corpse of its spouse two winters ago.

Beautiful words, Reena, and such a perfect photograph to go with them.

Brian Miller said...

this is so sad....the walls of hope is a cool turn of phrase, the coming storm...there is hard emotion in this....

Beautiful words to accompany your beautiful photo, Reena! This verse would also fit the young osprey, too!

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

I hope these words just have to do with the photograph and not something personal. The words are so deep and moving. Beautiful photo.

A beautiful verse that is perfect for this time of the year. I watched birds this morning fly away, and I was feeling a little left behind too as I wished them safety on their journey ...

off the wall of hope "
