From an old diary…some youthful poetic utterances~
Alone in the silence of the night
i look for inspiration
in the stillness of my heart.
Through the foggy crevices of my mind
they come unbidden~~~
wisps of an idea,
some memory long forgotten,
glimpses of the past,
visions of the future,
a joy shared, a place visited,
dreams broken, desires unfulfilled
they fill my heart with music,
they set my heart dancing.
But when i reach out they elude my grasp~
Tantalisingly, teasingly they come near
and then they leave me alone
gazing at the shoreline of wonder
bordering the sea of imagination.
Yearning to drown myself,
i yet hesitate
