Pursuing the Comet

I glimpsed it one night floundering in dark, still young of age, beset by whirls of doubt. Not knowing on what journey to embark, inside my gloom, I prayed to be pulled out. How radiant and rare it seemed to me, appearing like a comet, light to show. I set my gaze on it that I might see the way it blazed where I was meant to go. Pursuing it, I left abashment’s edge and followed to where flowers softly swayed and scent of lilac wafted from a hedge. Such welcome realm where soothing music played! This scene, though dreamed, revealed to me in youth serenity is found in seeking truth. 9/24/2012 For Francine Roberts' In Dreams Poetry Contest

    Here I am seeking the truth lol, our dreams can reveal some surprising truths, I know from experience. Thank you for all your comments Andrea and the extras you do, as I've said before, much as I appreciate it , if you're busy not to bother with me. I don't do many poems, I enjoy doing the comments and not to just to get replies. Take care, Richard

    Wonderful poem Andrea. Thanks for letting me know how to get into seeing comments. I never would have thought to click on that so thanks so much. I tried to log in yesterday but it would only allow me 3 letters so I am home today I can get in. Funny they must have been working on it. Figured I had better not try anymore than 4 attempts as don't want to be locked out. love phyl

    OH, WOW! I really need to visit you more often. Always a pleasure reading your words. Okay, so my blue go back button WORKS. USe the arrow way at the top of the screen, top Left! OR just click on the poet's name and you'll be right back to the poet's main poem page. Is that what you are looking for? You want to read many poems from the same poet and just click one button to get from their poem BACK TO their main poem page? Am I making sense? comment me.

    The last one I saw in the night sky was in 1997. Some people say they are premonitions of war or some other kind of disaster. Good poem as always Andrea.

    I really like the last line! If you want to give me some feedback on my poem "Ike Davis Hit Two Homers" I have not many hits on it! I'm crying in my beer! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    When I read this I thought it was for the Night/Dark/Black contest. Such descriptiver terms about the comet, you could enter it into the Space contest as well. You could probably sweep all three with your glorious sonnet.
