Secrets in a Storm

Secrets sail on the whirling winds,
along with the dark and driven clouds.
Carried aloft with litter and leaves
are invisible, partly submerged longings:

to hitch a ride on the primal rawness,
to abandon all things set and tethered,
to project oneself toward the unknown,
while thriving through the natural chaos.

    A good read with interesting construction. Two quatrains separated by a colon: actually two sentences meditating on secrets.

    I loved both poems. It makes feel like a person on the move and not sure where I am going. But when I get there I'll be fine. Thank you for the mood.

    Odd that a line from an old Country song leaps into my mind as I read these poems. A Slim Whitman song. " Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweed". I just enjoyed, what I saw as, your portrayal of "drifting on the breeze though life's troubles. I must look up the lyrics now as it's a lovely song. God Bless. D.

    To be as free as the wind and avoid a life that is becoming stoic would be wonderful... I loved this poem, Carol. I was just swept away by these expressive lines. Beautifully done!... Welcome to Poetry Soup. I am looking forward to reading more of your work!
