Gone With The Wind


Wanting to touch the sky
I reached out,
but it was beyond my grasp.

Intangible -
like a whisper carried on the breeze.

Hopefulness -
drifting through the shadows
of my mind….

lost
in the labyrinth
of the present,

now gone …
with the wind.

    I do not desire to be your magic carpet ride
    Just the air beneath
    alas when you reach out to touch my face
    It is a wish I cannot bequeath (Report) Reply

    I wouldn't touch the sky Val, it's full of chemicals :)
    I like your poem, it has an etheric essence. Sad though. (Report) Reply

    The wind in it's infinite fashion can pick up a seed and take it to
    a place far away from where it had originally fallen. So is it with our
    thoughts it can take us to lofty heights then set us in a a place of
    complete serenity. Very inspiring. (Report) Reply

    Sometimes we fall short of goals and desires. But one can still try. Brief, to the point and finely written. (Report) Reply

    An eye-catching title, very poetically and intelligently used...with a change of your own style with a touch of newness to it...liked it! (Report) Reply

    Sky is empty space with particles floating. If hope is all the pace from earth to sky, some part is reachable, I hope. Thank you for a beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    Sometime our hope and dreams are gone with the wind but at least we have hope. (Report) Reply

    Full of symbolism and impressionistic imagery. Very much said, in very few lines. Sentiments.The lost feeling very present., the lost feeling in Time. (Report) Reply

    'Gone with the wind' is too far fledged from reality as the sky is still there and Valarie can still reach out in course of time.
    A fine and short poem from a poet standing tall over here. Fine sharing Valerie.. (Report) Reply

    'Man's reach should exceed his grasp or what's a heaven for'? So don't worry even if you couldn't reach out to the sky! But hopefulness shouldn't be let to go with the wind! Enjoyed! (Report) Reply

To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
