Of Moonbeams and Dandelions

when the Wind Chimes
that is my life
blows into another horizon as it sees fit,
I follow like a rag doll,
as the force just drags me along.
The control
I so desire
is as allusive as a Moonbeam,
(you never quit actually can fully snatch it)
So I follow
as I do;
a Dandelion
traveling on the wind,
but never really quit a fit…

Flu meds or not, the imagery you manage to capture in the shortness of the lines is really quite stunning. I've always enjoyed the pauses made in the reading by shortening lines. It makes more space for the reader to think, imagine, and create within the poem. I love this!!

I love the format you are heading for in this piece of what I will call "spoken poetry"   That drifting seedling, never does quite fit in ...  I enjoyed this so much.  Title is captivating ...Well done. ~Pamela

Love it, Adri. I liked the reference to wind chimes and the rag doll simile but I especially liked the image conjured of "a dandelion traveling on the wind". Meds or not, you always deliver.

Moonbeams! Find Dandelion dreams. Whenever they find the flower. They kiss or blow away a Dandelions dreams.

I think you make a valid point concerning the nature of life, Adri.....Control is but illusion. Thinking we have some makes us less frightened...len

One of your finest writes to date! I love poems that seem to have a life all of their own, like even you the writer had no idea where it was going and how it would end. Into my faves with this one Adri.
