Celebrating a Year

week 101 ~ talking to you across the miles

with 58 comments

talking to you across the miles
typing to you the words in my
heart and I wonder does the sky
feel them passing or are my smiles
invisible and do the styles
of type chosen with care matter
at all to the clouds that gather
on the horizon do they know
we have gone everywhere yet no-
where and still can’t find an answer

    • Thanks, Charles– pondering some dense questions that are scrambling my this-is-the-right-way signals a bit at the moment…


      September 24, 2010 at 11:22 am

  4. Beautiful questioning here…. I think sometimes there are no answers; but it is good to question the questions of our hearts and souls. Then soon enough, we will forget or let go of the questions… :) heartspell

    • Thanks for your musings on mine. We do never know really, and is this real or simply ether?


      September 24, 2010 at 11:21 am

  5. nice pondering of what those clouds may see…as we rush here and there looking for answers…some things i think we will never know, not that it will stop us from running…smiles.


    September 24, 2010 at 11:13 am

  6. Oh, I love this style of word wondering…

    >>> do the styles
    of type chosen with care matter
    at all to the clouds that gather
    on the horizon do they know

    • More confusion than romance, unfortunately… For more on decima check out my definition & a link to all my decimas in the RH column.

  8. Beautiful words posing such superb and romantic questions. I also really love your shadow photograph – looks awesome :D xx


    September 24, 2010 at 4:26 pm

  9. I think there is a certain romance to confusion, no? Nice write. Love and Light, Sender

    • I suppose, but it’s hard to continue to suspend disbelief. Thanks for reading.


      September 24, 2010 at 5:42 pm

  10. Nice wording. Oh the uncertainty and doubt on possesses when the object of one’s affections are distant and far away…I have been there and understand…

    • Hmm, interesting that so many of y’all think it’s a romantic poem. I wish. Actually I was musing on the insubstantiality of blogging and email.


      September 24, 2010 at 6:01 pm

  11. Oh, I have been down this road once before and know the feelings you have posted in this piece. It helped me to revisit those memories…I became wistful.


    September 24, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    • Wistful isn’t bad, or good either– but thanks for reading!


      September 24, 2010 at 7:53 pm

  12. I’m experiencing an emotional flood thick with memory after reading this! It reminds me of when my husband was in Iraq (he wasn’t even supposed to go back…and there he was!)

    this is stunning…at least thats how it appears enetering my heart, psyche

    Thank you for sharing



    September 24, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    • wow, the power of poetry. Thanks so much for your comment and I so hope your husband is home now.

  13. “do they know we have gone everywhere yet nowhere…”

    i can relate to this verse… i think the best way to find the answers is to stop looking for them. that’s when the answers find me.

    i love your poem, mairmusic.=)

  14. Ah, it feels that all of the Universe is one with you in this poem … what you are writing winging is way across the web (not Internet) … Just lovely, Marilynn. Thank you for this.

    Poem on …

  15. there are times like this. there sure are times like this.


    September 25, 2010 at 3:42 am

    • Yes, and luckily we all move past them to somewhere, if not exactly where we aimed.


      September 25, 2010 at 7:49 am

  16. Woow, does this poem talks about to reach something that unreachable? I don’t know why, but I think it does (imho). However, you’ve done a great job in describing “the distance”. Nice!


    September 25, 2010 at 12:01 pm

  17. What a nice idea to link the communication with the act of word processing. Good poem.


    September 25, 2010 at 12:12 pm

    • Thanks– it can all be so unreal… These words are now flying instantaneously to France!


      September 25, 2010 at 4:48 pm

  18. it’s like an endless lack

  24. I often ask similar questions to the stars. Do they shine down indifferently or do they notice?

    Sometimes they seem like they are the only things left to see us.

    Beautiful poem.


    September 28, 2010 at 8:33 pm

  25. I know this poem…I have felt it in my heart, yet never seen it written down so perfectly. Very well thought piece. The photo is interesting to me too…the shadow just a vague image of something real.


    October 1, 2010 at 5:14 pm

  26. Ahhh!So nice! I remember this anguish so well. Well said.
