Once More
Once More

A wanderlust attends my end in peace -

reflections rotting t'ward reality.

Will answers coming cause my question's cease,

and will my walk, my thoughts, show me to me?

Is there a hearth some place where I may go

and patiently await Death to descend?

Will then a stagnant river start to flow

to help me find my feet to face Life's end?

On windward beach my wisdom washed ashore,

your heart awaited sails long overdue,

and cargo - dreams and hopes forever more - 

all lagan, with a love I shared with you.

Across the sea, in sad and lonely eye...

is there, for me, a tear that's left to cry?

Such powerful emotions in your poem.  The words are very moving and flow so well.

This is so beautiful! Sonnets are one of my favorite poetic styles, and you did Shakespear proud with this one. A gorgeous description.

Another beautiful piece, Tristan...Like Alison, I don't know anything about iambic pentameters but if this is an example of one, they're maginificent!

Wouldn't know a iambic petnameter if it fell into my soup but I know a lovely poem of sadness and yearning when I read it.

Is there a hearth some place where I may go
and patiently await Death to descend?
Will then a stagnant river start to flow
to help me find my feet to face Life's

Very nice.
