The Sky Admirer

Sometimes I wish
that I could find
an empty land
where I could stand
pure
in the desert dust,
swim on a glass lake.
I could be
a serene swan
or a lily,
the sky my admirer.

But one lone lily
hears no laughter,
a swan
in a lake without ripples
feels no touch
and the sky does not admire me
I admire the sky.

Still, sometimes I wish
that I could find
an empty land
that I cold fill,
where sweet stars fall
and noble deeds grow
and songs sing each to each
and home is the heart.

Martie, The whole poem is beautiful, but you could have stopped at the end of the first verse and that in itself is an exquisite thought.

This is fantastic! The kind of poem I wish I could claim as my own. Very poignant and melancholy. Well done Martie.
