Forgotten, but not lost

Hubby had a problem with his computer yesterday and did some housekeeping.
I thought I ought to do the same so asked for his help in defragging my machine (everywhere was red apparently) and then set to in sorting out my files, downloads etc to see what I could delete or archive elsewhere.

I came across a couple of poems I’d put on the back burner and forgotten.
The first is an abecedarian poem and the second just as it came to me.

This picture was taken on Christmas Day 2018.

Another day:
Beautiful and
Expectations now
Jostling inside:
Loneliness, yet
Mellow in the sun
No-one to explain
Open waters
Pulsating as the tide:
Questioning why,
Reasons illogical and cruel.
Shimmering tears
Unchecked fall in
Violent torrents,
Waning and finally
Yielding to
Zenith and peace.

This was the second and the image is from google

A downward spiral
Into darkness.
Feet stumble,
Eyes cloud,
Heart plummets.
Effort is futile,
Energy lost,
Mind elsewhere.
Day to day living blurs,
Remote control,
No thought,
Enthusiasm dies.
Solitude preferred.
Time immaterial
Passes unnoticed.
Alone, but not lonely
Voices echo
Singing lullabies
From years long past.
Tears fall,
No reason,
Cleansing comfort
Relieving pressure,
The Dam of living
Release and flow,
Mingling onward
Another time and place.



About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. These are both lovely, Di. Really well done.

  2. It’s amazing what you stumble across. Especially given my chaotic filing system. These are wonderful. You should do more poems.

    Right now, I can really identify with your second poem. It could have been written for me!
    Also, do we all have to do this defrag thing?

  4. These are the best of that form I’ve read.
