Edinburgh without You

The clouds are drifting away
with the seagulls' fading shadows.
Bach's music, a deep step to eternity.
Abandoned  I, 
a deep stroke to my heart,
when you left.
A wide step to infinity.
Un jour triste por le voyager.
How is it possible that one day 
could pass even quicker
than an entire year?
To meet you, was it accidently,
was it just luck or perhaps destiny?
Now Edinburgh remains grey again
without you.
And colours washed out in the rain.
Princess Street remains dark 
and in shadows.
Only my thoughts are with you,
freed from a desolate enclosure.
I myself  feel like a cloud,
drifting away with the wind
and into the sea

    Oh, I can feel the pain and longing eminating from this poem, Gert. I know you don't usually enter contests, but this would make a good entry for Thvia's "Scotland" contest. So unique with vivid descriptions of Edinburg, Princess Street and a lonely soul. Beautiful writing! Love, Carolyn

    I enjoyed reading your poetry today and will be back again soon to read more Gert. May you have a week of good health, joy and sunshine to light up your life. Love, Carol

    Super imagery here, Gert. Brooding, just like Edinburgh is. I remember Princess Street as if it were yesterday....both when in shadow and in light.

    Yes, I guess we've all been there, my friend (not Edinburgh LOL). Great poem, Jack

Hugs to you...
