Wandering Listlessly


Wandering listlessly

I'm searching for a place to write
Where voices are hushed
Whispers unheard
The outside world a low hum
Be still, ticking inside my head
Secret garden
Library of labyrinths
Lapping waves on the shore
Wooded cabin
My elusive nook
Where I curl up with a book
Hide me away, at least for a day
Silence...
Peaceful thoughts set
Adrift

  5. Lovely poem! We writers all need that quiet place. Sometimes it's our own minds that are too noisy, worrying or planning or whatnot.

  6. Beautiful poem. I'm not a poet though I dabbled in 6th grade and became totally discouraged by obnoxious teachers in the 8th grade.
    By the way, I'm running a contest.

  7. Joanna, you lucky lady! Enjoy your lovely trip away. ;)

    Terry, thanks sweet! Totally agree, sometimes there's too much noise in our own heads.

    KarenG, thank you! Glad you enjoyed. ;))

    Nancy, thank you, I guess this poem is reflective of my mood today. *deep sigh*

    Perhaps, if you can write that way you found it.

  11. Meredith, thanks! Coffee shops are always good hideaways...esp in the cold months.

    Dom, thank you. Good to hear I'm not alone! ;)

    Elaine, thanks so much. I wish, some days I find it; others are wanting. ;)
