I Often Sit and Ponder

I often sit up and ponder
My mind free to wonder,
Of a future not too yonder
Where under life’s thunder;
Nature is free to plunder!

But through man’s magic
The events aren’t tragic.
In one way fantastic
Yet, in another drastic!
Would you be nostalgic?

As I lie in my hibernation
I envision your visitation
Hear the rhetorical conversation,
Or, is that a vivid hallucination
From my present desolation

I might be feeling alone
Maybe just, a hormone?
What is my current tone?
To you it seems unknown.
It's one that calls for home!

When nature is free to plunder,
Would you, for me, be nostalgic?
When I feel desolation
Would you call me home?
Into your arms!

Hi BAILEY.. this is a powerful, well constructed write, that I enjoyed reading today! I want to WELCOME you to Poetry Soup, a great place to display your creative, artist works. It's also an ideal place to meet and be shaped by other poets. I read a lot of poems and I'm looking forward to checking out more of your works. PS.. If you have a moment, check out my poems as well. I'm looking forward to becoming friends with those who do (Iron sharpens Iron).. Talk soon, LYRIC MAN
