What Remains (tanka)*

unforgotten love

lingers after it departs

remains in the heart

photographs now left behind

remains of what once was us

lg/16072021

*Note: Photographs are the physical remains of our memories of people and places we loved. Where a moment of happiness is preserved forever. My song choice is Photographs and Memories by Jim Croce. One of my favorite artists, died at the age of 30 (at the height of his career) in a plane crash, like many before him and after.

Insanities Prayer *

Confused

Thinking

Shallow

Breathing

Frustration

Growing

Mind

Running

Wild

GOD help me TODAY!!

Seeking

Escape

Slowly

Exhaling

Closing

Eyes

Simple

Regression

Breathing

Deeply

Insanity rests,

As God whispers,

Hush.

*Note: who hasn’t felt this way one time or another in their lives. That feeling where all is lost and life seems to be insane at that moment, this is how I have coped with it, perhaps you have too. I always loved this song by George Harrison

This isn’t a new poem, it was posted earlier when I first started my blog.

I’m sharing it for Reena’s prompt:

Telephone Calls (tanka)*

continues ceaseless

ringing demanding answers

when there aren’t any

messages now left inbox

too much heartache to listen

*Note: There are many different reasons not to answer a call (I just chose one). I’ll let you the reader think of what the others might be. The song choice is Hello by Adele. 🌎 βœŒπŸ»πŸ’™ Take care be safe.
