Not so Easy Rider

I wish to return to beauty
instead of the mundane
To marvel at rainbows
glistening in the rain

To feel melancholy 
Life’s mysteries to explain
Choo Choo engine progress
days chugging like a train

The mysteries of oceans
far deeper than my pain
Why do I live carelessly
while others have to strain

I was born out of love
yet love is hard to maintain
My spirit begs me to listen
why do I yield to my brain

Yet desire keeps growing
I pray it will not wane 
Life’s a horse to be ridden
I’ll cling tightly to its mane!

Richard, we all try to hang on to the sure things in life, but good to think differently and separately sometimes. Great poem. Poetry hugs, Jennifer.

Life can be fast and busy, so much so that many people never get to enjoy the simple things on offer. ~ Regards // paul

Hi Richard, such is the way of life, sometimes we spend too much time with the mundane to the detriment of all else. I take things nice and easy these days, taking in all I can. Another wonderful write Richard. I can relate to your words, leaves one with many thoughts. Have to fave my friend. Have a wonderful Friday. Your friend always....Mike.

Ahhhh...I wish to do the same. Lovely reflective piece. We sometimes get so caught up in the mundane... we forget to ride! I'vr been so so busy. No time to write... No muse...Thanks for the visit, dear. I'll try to write sometime next week. My daughter is still here.

It is as hard to hold onto love, as it is to let it go. Like you said "life's mysteries to explain" Awesome write, Richard!

Felt this in ways that grew with the poems development. So much was conveyed, you left me with layers of thought to sort thru in reaction to all this poem reveals and I believe I'll sort thru it with spirit. Provoking and admirable poem. Poetry hugs ... CayCay
