FEELINGS BASED POEM:”YEARNING AND ILLUMINATION”

Is this

All there is:

This

Intermittent

Yearning

Longing

Hiraeth..

A la

Recherche..

And medical

Mistakes and

Wrangles..

Yes, sometimes..

Let it out,

Like in this

Poem.

……………………………………..

BUT

There ARE:

Courses and books

Friends

Music

Espresso;

Autumn

Sunlight

Streaming

Tentatively

Through the

Window of the

(half)

Illuminated

Cafe

………………………….

And the

GNAWING

Anxiety:

That too

Can be

Managed…

Carpe diem

Seize the

Epiphanies….

    Thank you, Steve, for the lovely poem — and for the new word “hiraeth.” Now I feel a bit melancholy, but that’s not a bad feeling. Much love, Merry

    Nice to see your poems are back! I liked ‘the (half) illuminated cafe’ – makes me think of autumn and how the light outside changed so quickly in the last two weeks.
