lost and found

This weeks prompt on Sunday Scribblings is Happy Ending

Left, abandoned
Sad beginning
Lost, discarded
All alone

Found and rescued
Happy ending
Held, embraced
and welcomed home

  6. 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.

  11. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. 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.

  20. 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.
