flying was never the question

to soar or not to soar
was only a matter of time
quiet hunger
and growth

singing was always the answer

stringing notes
along branches
like berries

sustenance and hope
twisted together
into a melody

so much more than






Linking up today with dVerse poets for Meeting the Bar: Creativity

    A poem after my own heart. You often write those, btw.

  • Kim Nelson January 25, 2013 at 2:49 pm

    singing… painting… writing… sculpting… we seem to know that it must be done, don’t we?

    Really touched by this one – every single line resonated with me.

    Your compassion shines through here and as always quiets and enfolds my heart. ‘Singing was always the answer’ struck the chord and it resounds long past the end lines. I love this poem.

    this is so beautiful! Singing always lifts me up, it is a kind of soul soaring isn’t it?
