L. B. Mek

of Destiny

Do you know me?

as footprints, on morning dew


Will you, remember me?

only your own choices, curate history’s pages


How do I learn, to choose wisely?

by treading pebbles - that resonate, with your pulse rate

    An incredible imagery-filled poem on what love means as time passes and with a last line that is so heart-stirringly beautiful Mek this has to go into my list of favourites.

    • L. B. Mek

      wow, that's just - well: Awesome!
      in the wise words of Mr Gump: 'that's, all I gota say about thaaaat' lol
      (thank you, sincerely)

    • orchidee

      Good write LB.
      Weaving in Assistant Priests eloquently - Curates, I mean! (Do shut up Orchi. lol).

      • L. B. Mek

        now, now you clever so and so, no i never: me, i'm all innocent and friendly, i don't do stealthy commentary...
        i'm all brunt and shoddy with me thinking's, I leave the obsidian scalpel wordplay, to those Degree equipped - with self-belief,
        i just scribble: instinctively and hope kind eyes, interpret with empathy: these feeble effort's, I share gift wrapped with naivety... lmao (no idea how you kind folks at MPS tolerate me)
        what a pair of knuckle heads we make, eh Orchi

        • orchidee

          Thanks LB lol. Aww, not feeble. Well, you didn't use a capital 'C' for curates, or I would be correct in thinking you was on about priests! lol
          *Looks up *'obsidian*. Now off on a trail of black rock or summat!
          There's nuttier than us on here, I expect, but 'no names, no pack drill'.

          Three good questions upon which to wisely ponder and one resounding answer. Though many a pebble may have known my footfall.

          • L. B. Mek

            always a highlight when i'm gifted one of your insightful comments on a write, as always thanks for taking the time, much appreciated my friend

          • Jerry Reynolds

            Nicely done. Read it several times get something different each time.

            • L. B. Mek

              yeah, it's one of those write's that's very open to interpretation I think
              thanks for the supportive comment

            • The Uneducated O.A.P

              Read this a couple of times, and in my lowly opinion seems to get better.

              • L. B. Mek

                lol, us lowly may have to 'get by' - equipped, with the 'potatoes' of life, but once in a while we get a sip of moonshine
                as always, thanks for the encouraging comment

              • Goldfinch60

                Super words Mek, as you know you learn through the wisdom of experience.


                • L. B. Mek

                • Suresh

                  Your words surely resonated with me, as I must learn to thread those pebbles

                  • L. B. Mek
