From waiting to not waiting for you

    Oh! A really wonderful poem! It shows a chaos of emotion, as if hiding a bomb about to explode. (Report) Reply

    This poem to me reflects a struggle. A war between the passion the heart is feeling and the logic of the mind..Thoughts and feelings are a classic struggle. “We do not chose love, love chooses us” Sometimes we deeply love someone, or something, despite the facts why we shouldn’t. Like an addiction “I do not see you but love you blindly” I love you madly and sometimes it’s beyond my control. What should one do, follow their heart, or use their brain and try to do what is right? (Report) Reply

    This poem to me, feels like a unconditional way of looking, and longing for love for all who; where, are, and who will be. Could also feel a powerful thought of a blessing/lesson, that we are all Family.....Everything that is, that exsists, have ways of communication, and finding ways to futher the healing pains. This poem is very inspiring.

    Respectfully Yours,

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
