Omitting the World


Remembering the fearful past,
Lost in the face of relationships,
I place a myriad of me inside a bubble,
Swimming in circles.
I church myself up
with flying elephants,
counting stars that don't exist,
I pretend that
I'm adventuring a romance
with concrete signs of promises,
while I know that
no real solutions to my problems,
...
Alone with my thoughts,
I compose my cobbled passion in music,
Singing it in my poetry.

  3. "counting stars that don't exist"

    Why is it, I wonder, that we place such impossible demands on ourselves, especially when life is battering us?

  10. I haven't seen a flying elephant since Dumbo.

    I like the verb use of nouns -- churched -- adventured -- good poem.

  12. You have done well with this word prompt, good poetess. I see Tess'
    presence in the elephant.

    You remind me of a certain German theologian who wrote though I paraphrase liberally that if God refuses to answer prayer, then fire Him and get a New God Who does.

    This relationship and dialogue with God really is the whole thing. Otherwise in the long haul there is not much to recommend Him.
