Solemn Day - Poem by Richard Noggin

A solemn day
Frost was thick this morning
But soon disappeared by the suns warmth
Cool weather always gets the best of me
Makes me feel confined
Like a man jailed unjustly

I get a longing for a cold beer
On a beach, sitting as the sun sets
Nothing better than the warm glow of the sun
As it drifts out of sight
The sound of the ocean’s waves
Keeping a steady rhythm of her melodic song

I am not made for the cold
But I am reminded this morning
That conditioning for the long winter
Must begin

I feel empty today
Devoid of emotion
Hungering for something
But no clue what that something is

I lack nothing in my life
No reason to feel lost
Disengaged from
The environment that I encompass

But for some reason I do
I feel lost
I have a very real sense
Of utter hopelessness

It amazes me how
I can feel so much
Perhaps tomorrow
I will feel different

Perhaps tomorrow
I will feel
At one with myself
At peace
And ready to face the world
