My Journey




If my life is the wind


That carries me


 Into the direction of its choosing


And I,


The light weight leaf


Voluntarily being blown


I can only ever hope to land in calm


Each time she lays me down.


  • Neil Higgins

    Enjoy your journey missy.
    Please don't get me going about leaves.Have cleared up so many from my back lawn this autumn 😑

    • Teddy.15

      Don't get blown away dear friend. 🀣

    • Paul Bell

      You never want to land on calm, you want to land on calamity, much more fun. That is, if the wind isn't Gail force ten. lol

      • Teddy.15

        Paul you are my calamity lol

      • L. B. Mek

        (beautifully paced,
        by your choice wording
        and line breaks, dear Poetess)

        • Teddy.15

          Why thank you dear Mek, just my daily scribbles. πŸ’–

          Oh you windblown messenger of lyrical finesse. Land ye in my court that ye shall find peace in harmony of poetic bliss. And then, taken again by the wind of fortune, may you land in the palace of your dreams amid the golden leaf fall of destiny.

          • Teddy.15

            Oh that's simply the most beautiful thing I've read dear Dusky, lol I love it when you talk dirty! LoL 🀣🀣🀣🀣

            • dusk arising

              Amid windblown lust, settle thee upon my acorn rampant, whence through blissful winter, we shall seed an aching need.

                      My goodness me, de-light-fall as a wind blown leaf

                      and lightly placed beneef for all to see ..
                      Sorry about that, I got carried away too ............................. another lovely little scribble my friend ... N πŸ™‚

                        The journey of yours
                        Resonates mine
                        But when I think deeper
                        It maybe story of us all
                        Maybe I am that leaf
                        But I guess I surrendered to the blowing wind
                        I let it carry where it wish
                        Yet calmness is a luxury
                        And all it takes me is tragedy
                        Well I hope for that calmness

                        So fine Teddy
                        The Seasons you play
                        The philosophy you draw
                        So fine and crystal clear

                        • Teddy.15

                          My dear spills, they are just scribblings, and actually you amaze.me with how deep you go to see them, where ever life takes us let's hope it's to a place of relative calm, as we all know life has.many tricks up its sleeves for all of us. I hope you are well dear friend, and thank you for making my work more special by leaving such beautiful reviews. X

                            Love your words , teddy πŸ™‚ leaves are so nice , they should certainly be in a calm happy place . Sometimes it feels like we really find ourselves in places we don’t want to be in .. I certainly have been

                                  From your few words I can imagine being an autumn leaf drifting slowly down carried by the wind until I land gently on a pile of leaves. There is no autumn in my country. Thank you.

                                • Teddy.15
