Cast Me Away Not

It is too very easy to be despondent
in a world of cast-aways
when all good things with life therein
simply through time do not stay.

I would hearken back to the 30’s
even though it was dust-bowl dirty
that every little piece of heart owned
was tightly held against the wind a’blowing.

Ah those times, when all precious things in form
brought back sweet memories of strife torn
days, and hours sweetly played ~
ah, how it was when cast-aways stayed.

When on this globe, nothing over months of age
would dare to center this world’s stage,
without being jeered at as “commonplace”
and such this very act gives me provoked rage.

So when it’s apparent that I collect treasures
do not regard it as a measure of wealth,
when wealth is inherently one’s health,
but that it is an art’s form that my eyes measure.

Finally, cast me away not upon a heap of rubble,
but remember that I gave you sunshine bubbles,
to ride upon to blue skirted skies
and do not cast me, or others, nigh.

Beautiful poem, Sunshine!

Sunshine, sunshine,
write that beautiful rhyme,
for me, one more time.

Will do, dear Nate, today, tomorrow;
find not in Sunshine any repentent sorrow.

Wise words wrapped in poesy
Very well, it is done by thee
I’m out of words..for it is so good
Your work elegantly...I lift my hat as i should.
Thank you


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Michael, you cannot be a cast-away, for you are HERE!

Again, thanks to everyone for allowing my cup to overflow and my sometimes sickening cheer to enter your worlds.  {Yes, I've been told I cannot be THIS happy always...}

Sunshine,
You have given me many, many " sunshine bubbles"
I love this piece....

 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!

I don't think you ever have to worry about being cast away...who in their right minds would do that?

a lovely write, something we should all take into consideration
