L. B. Mek

of Sublime pitfalls


There’s a gentle tug

of submarine depth, pressure strands

asking - waiting, for right-timing’s subtle touch


to call forth belated realisation’s, sharp edges

within melancholic sunbeam spears

as reality’s mundane routine, finds itself


removed, through immersive dips

in serenity’s comfort creeks

beyond blinks, as daydreaming feats


voices, dim and tumble - along fantasy streams

with only nature – daring, to whisper warnings

of reminiscing’s: idolised trappings.

    Very nicely pennedLB.

  • Teddy.15

    imagery alone is superb, kudos on your last two line, L.B you always crack it at the end. wonderful.

    • L. B. Mek

      'you always crack it, at the end'..
      sadly, I do indeed
      that's why my lives, a tale
      of Greek-plate wreckage: maybe's
      and belated acceptance of
      ill-fated, may-it-be's? lol
      thanks for the unfailing support
      dear poet, I lack the intellect
      to word your kindness
      its due justice, so I'll once again
      have to settle, for a wholehearted
      thank you! and hope
      my humble gratitude: filters through 😄

    • Jerry Reynolds

      Haunting write, L.B.

      • L. B. Mek

        ah, wise poet
        I see you've cut through my distracting word trickery
        and gleaned, at what destitute mindset
        that sprouted these mournful thoughts..
        I thank you, for lending me your valuable time
        and letting me know, I'm not alone
        in traversing such 'haunting' experiences..
        I'm humbled, beyond words Jerry

        A superb poem, engaging its reader. Thoroughly enjoyed, and reread many times.

        • L. B. Mek

          thank you so much dear poet, I promise
          your encouraging sentiments will be utilised
          with purposed humility

        • Neville

          ... We have both moved on since I last wrote the words 'this is my most favouwrite L.B. Mek creation ...
          ... I know, because this is most probably my most favouwrite to date ...
          ... Indeed, it is all those positives already writ ... engaging, haunting & elsewise altogether superb ..


          • L. B. Mek

            'We have both moved on'
            shoulder-to-shoulder, brother
            one inked syllable of our truth, at a time
            sharing, encouraging and growing: together
            finding a way, to squeeze out
            one more scribble
            and keep this poetic journey going
            anyway we can, knowing
            even if it ends tomorrow or in ten years time
            we did what we could, to insure
            we left no space: for futile regret..
            and that, my friend
            is as good: as it can ever get!

          • Goldfinch60

            That right time has been and will be there for us all Mek.


            • L. B. Mek

              may it be so, for us: all
              my friend

            • Fay Slimm.

              A trip through the realms of how to write imagery - so well described dear L.B. these sublime fallings.

              • L. B. Mek

                ah, our dear Fay
                praise on imagery, from a Poetess
                of your mesmeric calibre, must mean
                I'm getting a little better,
                thank you, I'm humbled: truly
