I like this post Keith it could be interpreted for many things nicely done.
beautiful...very effective. there are so many possible interpretations that spring to mind...I love it when I'm left wondering. Thank you :)
A kitten came to mind for me Keith. But your above comments are correct.. many things could apply. beautifully done.. hope all is well. I have lot's of catching up to do on your blog. xo
Great poem nice flow I love happy endings
Wow, few words that say so much. Thank you!
Keith,You know how this poem speaks to me with the incident I wrote just recently. I understand how it is to loss something and finding it, but that's a superficial and shallow take of this rather profoundly moving piece.I wish you well.~ Jeques
Well done. You mist be a proponent of the K.I.S.S. principle. Keep it simple stupid.
loved the opposing stanzas. nice play with words. clever. :-)
I thought of an adopted child, but as someone else said, it could apply to anything. Very sweet.
It can be taken for anything.. Like it!
This is very delicate, Keith, and that's what makes it tug the heartstrings. I'm not sure what makes me think of, but I'm already ready for the Tour Manager's business trip to be over. He just left today.
Short and sweet, but certainly a happy ending. And good to read.
simple yet so profound.. loved it Happy Ends and New Beginnings
Short and sweet. Yay for happy endings!
Sorry Keith, no harm intended. My interpretation of the Kiss principle is, simple and uncomplicated is best. As a potter I use it too, it reminds me not to keep fiddling with something I am doing and take things too far, i.e. keep it simple.
wonderful. I love the rhythm you have created and certainly a happy ending.
Keith I echo Jadey's comment. There is nothing like being embraced and welcomed!!I enjoyed this piece
I wonder who you had in mind when you wrote it. I thought of children with no families of their own. But there are a lot of adults and pets needing to be found, rescued, and welcomed home too.
i love the happy ending - your piece has a haunting quality for me, i know i'll come back to it over and over again in my mind and my heart
Oh, these few lines made me so very happy! Excellent poem!
And to add to the variety of explanations, I thought of an abandoned puppy, although I can interpret it in different ways, all skillfully suggested by your poem.
I love your poem, very touching! View mine here
Your reading this made it even better. Loved it!
Very nice, especially if you wrote it on the spot. Nice tight cadence.
everything one needs when abandoned and lost.. hope takes flight...
