A globule of liquid is
dropped into this ocean,
Blending in, one with the water that is
chaotic, frothy, never still.
Moving along,  flowing along the waves
Shaken, being the shakee, watching the water move
Everything after all is a tumble of roiling emotions

Then the ocean stood still,
and there was only hmmm . . .

It turns out, this globule was a mistake...
It never belonged, never truly blended in.
An illusion, perhaps?
It had always been different.
In a word:
In every sense of the word.
Easily separated, filtered out.
Then tossed, swallowed
 by sand.
Vestiges of it erased,
like it never deserved to be there in the first place.

    Wait a minute ... I saw Joann's comment and for one second I thought that she was back. This poem is from 2012!!! Are you removing your poems? Whywhatwhenwho? Are you leaving us? How dare you? I'm waiting for an answer ...

    btw, even my "name" here gives clues as to my ficklemindedness in leaving here. I have yet to think of my final name here. haha. silent one's current contest might actually be very apt to enter right now :p

    Hey, this resurfaces me to sad places/moments again as to whywhatwhenwho I wrote this-- haven't read this for some time. I was beeing a dramatick here. Or not. Where is Joann?? As for your question-- I find that tricky to answer-- haha I have been trying (trying being the operative word) to seriously, seriously leave here for about 3 years now but yup, sighs. Still here. I've been removing stuff, then again adding some stuff but mainly wanting to remove More stuff. So I just mainly refrain myself from writing. And how dare me? Hmmm I find out, it could actually be "how cowardly of me" to not be able to fully leave. this reply to disintegrate in 54.8 hours....

    Oh geez. I feel like a cheater. Hahaha. WHy the hell did "knaths" stumpify me?? Couldn't figure it out and had to resort using an anagram solver. I am Pathetic. with an Ick. Thank you so much for reading this and glad you enjoyed it, Mr. Ruben.... glad to let you learn a new word. Oddly enough, even with the sadness in this write, I do recall enjoying the play on words I did with immiscible here. I will try to pass by your writes soon. Thank you :)

    Missy I can definitely indentify with this gem of yours. It is weird how we sometimes get into a space where you once felt so comfortable and all of a sudden you feel out of place.. okay that is just my take on this gem of yours.. Glad to see you on the soup :) *mwahugs* enjoy what is left of your Tuesday!!

    what an unusual and enjoyable poem this is, Nikko. What inspired you to write of it? Is it metaphorical? I can see how it could be something much deeper for you. Thanks so much for your support today in replying to my poems and blog comment. Always the true friend that I miss here at soup. I see ARild and others are very pleased you are here too!! Luv, andrea
