Search For Light

"Search For Light" – A Minute To find a little bit of light; Like a small kite, Needs wind outside, To careful glide. The wind outdoors just blows and blows; I'm in the shadows. Searching for aid, Can't leave the shade. Concentrated, I read all day, To find my way. From words lifted, Slowly shifted. LW 12/26/2018

Ah, Laura, a calm poem that has settled me down immediately, in a sweet and lovely way. "I'm in the shadows, searching for aid. I cannot leave the shade." This is so telling, and means a lot to me personally. Well-done, please share more.

Thank you Caren! I just started getting into poetry so there is not much more to share, yet. But you will be pleased to hear that, when I researched how different poem forms are written, I saw your cinquain "New Grass" and liked it so much, that I copied it as an example into my notebook. Merry Christmas!
