Poem: If We Must Leave

Quote of the day:

The past screams louder than the future. The future is mute, but it’s not deaf.  -Jarod Kintz

image: artlimited

I sealed love in an envelop.
And dreams in a bottle thrown out to sea.
If it reaches you then we can envisage to elope.
Go secretly and whisper not to evident trees.

I buried my feelings underneath the frail earth.
And when I returned it was gone.
Like the rising sun missing at dawn.
All that was left was your scented chiffon.

I slept but my heart was wide awake.
To work, to tend, to  heal, to reveal.
Secrets do not have to be unmasked.
Unseal the tempestuous past, leave the future sealed.

Peace & Love*

  1. Beautiful!XOXO

  2. @Jeanne: Hello. Nice of you to visit, thank you!

  3. There is a nice magic in this - a learning to let go of love and realizing it is free - and a blessing when we get it. When we try to control love, we kill it. Sometimes it leaves us only remnants.

  4. X: I agree that love is a blessing -when we get it, we often lose it when we don't pay attention or try to control it. Great thoughts, I appreciate your warm comment and nice of you to drop by!

  5. I can completely relate to this...just that I got no intention of 'unsealing the tempestuous past'

  6. A lovely poem you have there.


  7. "the future sealed" may sprout inro a brand new kind of tree called "chiffon"

  17. "And when I returned it was gone.
    Like the rising sun missing at dawn."

  38. "leave the future sealed"

    I'm sure we would all enjoy life much more if we could manage this.

  39. Amazing!


  40. I'm not a great one for poetry, though I do like some and applaud the talent people have for it. Hmm - the nice idea about leaving the future sealed - could just as easily apply to the past? Loved your post about beards - very amusing; mine comes and goes. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a kind comment - much appreciated!

  48. You sure have a way with words. Very touching and somehow food for thought.

  49. A wordsmith. No doubt about it.

  50. Powerful poem. It was a pleasure to read.

  51. Some great images here. One question, in stanza 2, when you say "it disappears" Do you mean your feelings or the earth?

  52. Powerful! I like that your blog posts make me think more deeply :)
