The holy ghost of Invisibility


Wrapped up in a blanket; by a fireplace in her mind
Remembering cozy evenings; 0f banquets once so fine.
      Where she held her lover tightly; trying to make it never end;
      But time has left her feeling; that it won’t come back again.
While the sparrows cling to bushes; and the doves hide in the eves;
The flocks go to the sanctuary; to pray there on their knees
       She remembers being a flyer; soaring through the skies;
       But she claims it was so long ago; behind a muffled sigh.
Waken from the day dream; confused she looks around.
A voice floats through the airways; void of any sound;
       But there’s no one there beside her; behind or in the front;
       So she climbs inside her special room; and there begins to hunt.
She’ll probably never find it; and if she did what could it mean;
It simply could be desperate wishes; that come from hopeless dreams

    Love this piece, Leonard! It has a musical feel about it. Wonderful imagery depicting this marvelous tale. A melancholy ending, but one that is hard to shake off. Wishing you and yours the best! Have a blessed Holy Thursday!! Mikki

    Great poetry here again, Leonard. A lot of possible deeper meanings swimming beneath the surface of your lines, for me.

    Dead on about beneath the surface Chris, but are they carnivorous .:).
