Thoughts

I offer my thoughts into the night,

Into the shadowy, hazy corner, 

Into half-light,

Where they are beckoned to dance.

Waltzing.

A flickering of words that tap, 

A repetition,

Sudden 

recognition.

A moment of clarity,

A moment of rhythm.  

I sing my thoughts into the breeze,

And they are swept with the rush of petals,

which,

scooped with leaves,

are floating.

My words billow with summers transience.

Softly

reminiscent.

A moment of tranquility,

A moment of innocence.

I whisper my thoughts into the sea,

Into the quiet of sand beneath,

And, bleached with salt,

they are comfortably 

sinking.

Into their resting,

and into their ashes, 

they quietly wait.

A moment of cleansing, 

A moment of testing.

  1. I particularly liked these lines:- I sing my thoughts into the breeze, And they are swept with the rush of petals, which, scooped with leaves, are floating.
    When i go out running I have all sorts of thoughts and ideas and I’m sure they are swept away because often when i go to write them down at home -they’re gone, I’d like to be able to collect them in! Clever poem #whatimwriting

  2. What beautiful words, Luisa – so lyrical and kind of floaty and peaceful. This is just what I need to read on a day like today. Oh, just read it again – even better on a second reading. Going back for thirds now…Thanks for sharing with #whatImWriting

  3. Beautiful imagery, and an utterly captivating rhythm. It’s made me realise I’m missing being immersed in writing since finishing my latest first draft – I haven;t quite found my feet in this next phase yet! x
