Voice In The Wilderness

Rating: 4.9
'Voice of a Wildebeast? ' she said......
She sort of spat it out
Mockingly
Her lined brow furrowed
In tightly ploughed lines.
'Voice of a Wildebeast! - Ha!
Now I wonder what that sounds like? '
She screwed her face
Contorted
Then, from the belly
Deep and booming

Lucy. This is such a good poem displaying your ability to describe a situation, a humorous misunderstanding that tells us so much about who you are and where you live. Brilliant. Deserving of poem of the day...Cheers Geoffrey.

'I said I am a VOICE IN THE WILDERNESS'.................. Every sub-conscious mind receives a voice in the wilderness, which is nothing but the God's commandments from one's own heart. God lives in every heart, who speaks the truth always, but the man doen't act according to the dictates of his conscience, his life ending in disappointment and failure on such occasions.

Oh Lucy, what a lovely ending to this one, I am slightly hard of hearing due to my thyroid packing up, and I know exactly how one can miss hear! ! ! Like grapes for plates! Bless your Gran, she's obviously got a good imagination. Sincerely Ernestine
