Head On

Heart beats in rhythm to snowflakes Cascading in tune to my reality Like a train travelling through time with no track Overwelmed by it's vivid fertile surroundings Colours pencilled in my mind As a reminder of life and it's many shades Guided by the brightly lit angels from above Resolve in my faith remains steadfast

A very spiritual poem, Carol. So well written in the rhythmic meter of life. Wonderful poem in so many ways. I really felt the vibe of it in my soul. But please enlighten me: the title, give me your thoughts on it. What it means to you in your own words. I would appreciate the insight. From one poet to another, a request from a kindred spirit. Love and peace to you.

Freddie, I am thrilled that you liked my poem. In answer to your question regarding my thoughts on my title. When life throughs you a curve ball and you're riddled with uncertainty you have two options either you deal with it "Head On" or you let it eat you up. I choose to learn from the experience and do my best to move forward. It's not always easy sometimes your heart beats as quickly as snowflakes cascading, you remember life has it's ups and downs. That's were faith comes into play. We need to believe in ourselves and have faith that all will be okay. We're never alone.  I truly believe I have angels watching over me :) Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Carol, I enjoyed the rhythm and the flow of this write.However, the final couplets leaped from the page"Guided by the brightly lit angels from above, Resolve in my faith remains steadfast," Because it's something to remember in a world with much chaos. Great job:-) Alexis

I just found this lonely poem with no remarks. So let me be the first to comment. I love this style of poem. Introspective and open to interpretation. I find it intelligent and deep. A Favourite!
