L. B. Mek

of Wind brushed, cheeks

 

gust of wind, nudged me

today 

my left cheek, this time

I, turned

to greet it and looked, and

waited

 

till my eyes, give-out

or cheeks 

age, into docile numbness 

I shall

Forever, turn to look and 

wait

 

take your time, if you must

but please

do visit as often, as you can

my dear

till we ride, fate’s winds

side-by-side

 

again

    Beautiful dear Mek. 💖

    • L. B. Mek

      thank you, my friend!

    • Paul Bell

      It's a great feeling to be visited, gives an uplifting start to the day, and a little bounce goes a long way.

      • L. B. Mek

        yeah, that's the exact scenario
        these scribbled words, were inspired-by
        how very perceptive of you, dear poet
        thank you;
        'a little bounce goes a long way.'
        I so agree!

      • Poetic Dan

        Boom! Now that's a way to start a Friday or any of them, each moment even! Lol

        Always a pleasure, thank you

        • L. B. Mek

          it's Always my privilege, brother
          thank you, for just being: You!

        • dusk arising

          That's my kind of poetry. A kissing breeze of a lifetimes longing.

          Into my favourites.

          • L. B. Mek

            what a rare and valued Poetic, treat!
            I'll count this
            as a cherished accomplishment, sincerely!

            it aint hard to see why
            'of Wind brushed, cheeks' is proving to be so very popular ..

            I can feel & sense it too sir .. just like one of Mr. Kipling's cakes .. exceedingly good & true ... Neville

            • L. B. Mek

              now they, were seriously good adverts
              made you crave a bite, every time
              'don't make-em like dat
              these days, eh friend'
              lol (my grey hair's, are talking again)
              still, cheers Hyung
              🍻
              'here's to that way of life
              we can never get back, to
              and those beloved souls
              who we can only
              reach-out, to
              by the gift
              of a gust of wind...'

              Dear Mek !! the last Line made the difference. Was waiting what you have in store and you ended in beautifully !! Nice write ..

              • L. B. Mek

                here's a free hint, dear poet
                next time just read the last line: first!
                don't wait, needles suspense
                ain't all that great
                so, make sure its got an ending you like
                before you start;
                (it's what I do with my read-to-forget
                novels
                because I ain't putting myself
                through an emotional roller-coaster for hours
                (I'm kinda, a wannabe speed reader)
                just to have the story, end on a downer
                no, thank you!
                so if you're like me
                and real life offers you
                all the dramatics and sorrow, you'll even need
                then skip ahead, to the end
                and be kind, to your own
                calloused heart! lol
                (thanks for the supportive and fun comment)

                A delicate poem, of spiritual connection. Beautiful and sad

                • L. B. Mek

                  welcome, and thank you
                  for taking the time to read
                  and then write
                  such an encouraging comment!
                  (and what a great pen name
                  you've chosen
                  a 'believer of daydreams'
                  'now that's the kind of mind
                  that can imbue, Hope
                  in-to everything they ink...')

                  • Daydream Believer

                    Wow thanks so much for these very kind words of encouragement 🙂

                  • spilleronsheet

                    A mixed emotions spurred inside
                    Was the heart waiting for someone to visit by
                    Maybe an old acquaintance
                    Her presence the wind carried beside
                    Maybe it was soothing feel of the wind that helped bring peace to my mind
                    Beautiful dear Mek

                    • L. B. Mek

                      you read me too well
                      I'll have to start writing my scribbles
                      in Sanskrit to give you a challenge, lol
                      thank you, kind poet
                      'soothing feel of the wind: that helped bring peace'
                      indeed!

                      • spilleronsheet

                        I will try my best to live up to your challenges dear Mek

                        Simple peaceful and lovely....awaiting the kiss on the wind....

                        • L. B. Mek

                          yeah, why else would I scrub
                          exfoliate and cream
                          me face,
                          every: morning!
                          'just in-case, yes indeed just
                          in case
                          serendipity, chooses to encase
                          my cheeks, with a whispered
                          gift...'
                          (forgive me, I'm just a fool
                          squeezing-free, my life's
                          light-hearted lemonade, of fun
                          from these scribbles, I share) lol
                          and thank you
                          for taking the time
                          to pen such a kind and supportive
                          comment, dear poet

                              it goes without saying, but
                              hope you know, the bravery
                              you exemplify: daily
                              helped inspire these words, my friend
                              thank you! and your muse...
                              (Spring will soon be here, dear poet
                              and you can pen your poems
                              that take us with you, on your walks
                              around that favourite lake
                              where your muse: awaits)
