free-verse/ Easy" and Rain
on: November 16, 2018, 17:31:00
so long that I`ve been around, had a little trouble with this old body and they kept me busy trying to fix-it..but I`m back and trying to get back into what I like. Hello to everyone here, hope all in your world is great... :dance:

these little writings are just minutes out of a day, thoughts that I try to pretty up, and maybe give others ideas..



Easy

Times you beg for relief,
 at any price, times one
 minute more.

 Days you harbor,
 so close to your soul,
 years you have let go by.

 Dust off all your worldly
 possessions, hurry to love once more.
 
All the heart you `ve given or taken,
 has tired you clear to the bone...

 Easy to rest from the distance,
 measure the day that folds,
 easy to cry, easy to smile,
 nothing here is won or lost..

Rain

Come closer,
do you think of me
in your Winter rains,
grays touch the ocean.

Come sit,
my hands are warm
merely empty.

I reminisce,
incidental moments
remind me....you too?
the paths we walked are the same I`m sure,
void of our impressions.

Do you think of me
when the rains fall?
it`s been so long...


Well better go,
rain is passing.
Thought you might like to know
I think of you..

Rain is that way sometimes.

This is seriously good verse.......flows wonderfully and elicits a great deal of emotional resonance, at least from this reader.

This demands multiple readings with a bit more resonance with each.

Thanks for posting it.

@Lane - fine lyrics. I specially relate to "measure the day that folds". Maybe "Measure the day" could also be the title? Or is "Easy" really central to the poem?

Wow, these two sets of...feelings / image-conjuring words are quite magical in a very organic way. If that makes sense.
