A while in the wilderness Poem by Matthew Holloway

A while in the wilderness
time has passed
since I last wrote
felt driven to create
the poetic urge
has been distant
almost forlorn
lost in the widerness
a part of me
has wandered
where a wandering eye
looks upon sights
pictures and dreams
all echo in ink
residing in this soul
the soul of a man
wanting to write
something beautiful
but no, not of late
a time to return
has come

    Welcome back to poetry land. We all go through it, when the urge to speak seems closed and we feel bereft. You expressed these feeling well and I enjoyed your poem which was well written and thoughtful: O)) BB (Report) Reply
