Seek Not My Heart

Oh gentle winds 'neath moonlit skies,
Do you not hear my heartfelt cries?

Below the branches, here about,
Do you not sense my fear and doubt?
Side glistening rivers, sparkling streams,
Do you not hear my woeful screams?

Upon the meadows, touched with dew,
Do you not see my hearts askew?
Beneath the thousand twinkling stars,
Do you not feel my jagged scars?

Seek not my mournful heart, kind breeze,
For you'll not find it 'mongst these trees.

It's scattered 'cross the moonlit skies,
Accompanied by heartfelt sighs.
It's drifting o'er the gentle rain,
A symbol of my silent pain.

It's buried 'neath the meadow fair,
Conjoined with all the sorrow there.
It's lost among the stars this night,
Too far to ease my quiet fright.

No gentle winds, seek not my heart,
For simply ... it has torn apart.

Kit; this sad and beautifully mournful poem touched my heart. I could feel the pain in the lovely analogies that you so artfully used. Sigh! Love, Ellie

Summers haunting melody
that awakens
the butterflies,
calling them to join
the dance
in their silent song
of praise to God.

Kit~
This poem is sheer loveliness.
It flows with a grace and beauty that
reaches and touches the core of a heart.

Do you not know - that it is perfect ? !
Well, it is !

A wonderful piece to read.

There are places inside our souls -
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts -
that need to be loved this much.
