Stranded On A Horizon - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Caustically sitting in a puddle of grief, not wanting
to be a part of anything.

Keeping quiet and ignoring all signs and signals from
others, wishing to start a conversation with me.

Not wanting to take the time away from writing, just
being stranded on a horizon, deeply set within an
unknown universe.

It has welcomed me silently into it's garden, giving
a reprieve that's needed so badly right here and now.

This is where I need to be and will stay until my
attitude decides to change and include others, but
for now just writing and listening to music.

    Deeply involved in your cherished pursuits - writing and listening to the music of your choice, unmoved and unruffled by others. Beautiful imagery. Thank you RoseAnn. The choice of words is commendable: just being stranded on a horizon, deeply set within an unknown universe /...but for now just writing and listening to music. (Report) Reply
