Lost

The lonely landscape whispers of itself.
Yesterday's shadow overtakes the field.
Lost in such thoughts we wonder what to do?
Bones are not strong enough to turn sunset.

Windows of home shine over the next hill.
Why must warmth always seem so far away?
Perhaps it might come closer if the dusk
Could understand the human need for light.

For all those who have lost their way.

    ____________________________________________________________________
    The season of mind is not a spring now
    We all alas! oft get lost not knowing how
    to overcome the shadow of past so deep
    and helplessly wait when a ray of hope will peep.

    Like Shelley you have a message for mankind,
    'If winter comes, can spring be far behind.'
