Soul Search



As soon as I walked through the door


I could feel the cold


And the dark


No sign of spring


No sign of anything


Just frozen air without light


And as my eyes dared to wonder


Around the room


I couldn’t help but think…


Will I ever find her?


  • orchidee

    Cooeeee! Did ya find me instead? Or as well as her?! lol.

    • Teddy.15

    • Goldfinch60

      • Teddy.15

        How's the Cabbages Campaign going? It's good you recruited a carrot and two potatoes, or something like that! I found a beetroot that was interested in joining up!

        • Teddy.15

          Oh Orchi, thanks for keeping up yes I now have an onion and a parsnip and a brussel sprout, slowly but surely we are becoming a great team. We may call ourselves bubble and squeak but it all up in the air for.now lol

        • dusk arising

          Spring into your arms she will with verdant shrubbery and dazzling blossom..... a sight to behold. Do you get April daffs there too?

          • Teddy.15

            Oh yes my dear Dusk, actually sometimes they pop up in January too, this year has already seen 22c. Very unusual but sometimes yes. Then the freeze arrives. Thank you dear friend. πŸ’–

            I see in these few well chosen words a poetic expression of atmosphere chilled by wintery attitudes and scribed so well with your sharp mindful pen dear Teddy - this is now in my list of faves for sure.

            • Teddy.15

              You touch my heart dearest Fay, I'm truly honoured πŸ’– thank you. X

              As you travel down inside
              You won’t only find her
              But her deepest desires
              Her fantasy
              Her dreams
              And her wildest ambitions
              And I just got lost in those words
              A very charming poetry
              Close to my soul
              I just love the title too
              β€œSoul search”

              • Teddy.15

                Dearest Spills, I'm not a wordsmith as you know although I'm charmed when others are, I was thinking this was a simple write about one finding her soul, I so truly appreciate your very very kind review, makes me want to share everything. πŸ’– Thank you.

                  worded and paced, harrowingly beautiful
                  dear Poetess;
                  and so relatable, to anyone
                  who may at any time, in their lives
                  try to connect
                  with the most influential person in each of our lives:
                  Our very selves!

                  • Teddy.15

                    Well said dear Mek, spot on. Thank you dear poet, you made my day. πŸ’–

                  • Paul Bell

                    For some reason, I'm thinking the Isley brothers here. Though that might be because I'm going music crazy. lol
                    The sun is going bonkers here, and I'm going to have to sneak out and get some of it.

                    • Teddy.15

                      No sun here today except you Paul, you are my sunshine 🀣 good to see COVID hasn't got you, Julie really did frighten it to death πŸ’–

                      • Paul Bell

                        And that's why the sun took out a restraining order on her. lol

                      • FallenAngel1πŸ•Š
