In Search of Thee..


How do I
Quench this
Eternal thirst
That floods
My frail mortal being?
I get comforted
But for a wink
From these
Temptations
Desires
Resentment
Angst and anger

No longer do I
Wish for momentary comfort
I wish
To be wrapped
In fulfillment

I walk
Alone
Against
This flood of
Unquenched thirst,
O, my saviour
My succour!

In search of
Thee...

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
