Sometimes


Sometimes it's not enough....
a cloudless sky
on a moonlit night
awaiting the arrival
of a flawless sunrise.
Sometimes it isn't enough
a springtime shower
on a desert bloom
parched from the heat
of a prolonged drought.
Sometimes it is not enough
to say I'm sorry
for a deed undone
as an afterthought
becomes the guilt of omission.


Robert


 if you can dream; you can fly...if you are flying; you are dreaming.

Another thoughtful piece, Robert. I like the way you described your "sometimes" in this poem, with the last line landing soundly at the reader's feet. I enjoyed this!

You've made me re-think some issues that are currently playing out in my life.  That is what the art of poetry is for, I believe.  And you, sir, are an artist.

RobertB-
You are truly genius with your
thought process.
What a perceptive look at
a deed undone.
I enjoy your writing very much.

Excellent thoughts, Robert. Sometimes we try to make up for too much with too little and it's just not enough.....or something like that.

Thanks all of you...this poem came from a life experience where I did not act when I should have. I looked the other way when I should have been paying attention.
