I am simplicity…
in measured depths of complexity
I wonder why we are all here

I hear my past haunting me
through gauzy veils of eternity
I see a tender – falling tear

I want to love sincerely
I am simplicity…
in measured depths of complexity

I pretend life doesn’t scare me
tho’ it petrifies the core of me
I feel it spinning out of control

I touch my future warily
in dreams of what I want to be
I worry about my family goals

I cry tears imaginary
I am simplicity…
in measured depths of complexity

I understand seasons changing
ever constant rearranging
I say what’s on my mind

I dream it’s him I’m holding
within my weary arms enfolding
I try to be honest and kind

I hope for forever – endearing
I am simplicity…
in measured depths of complexity



 May I never be too busy to help another's load,
Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.

Nicole, you are amazing.  The first line is so "YOU"...  and the rest of the poem compliments beautifully.  I love the way you integrated the rhyme here.  Challenge well met, Indeed, my dear.

This is beautiful. . . I really like the first line. . . and this one: "I dream it’s him I’m holding within my weary arms enfolding"  I feel that we all dream that. . .

Challenge well met my friend. . .

An enigma and paradox you are, my friend, simple and complex.  I know we've had our rough spots, and we have a knack for working each other's nerves, but I still, and always will, consider you a friend.

Thank you for answering this challenge in such a skillful manner.  Wonderful job.

in measured depths of complexity."

this is so perfect...
I love the honesty and fragileness of it.
something that I find in all your poetry.
beautiful work here.


 ~as always, Take Care,JM~

I know it's been a long road
To get these towns behind me and I
Will gladly reap what we may sow--
I am there for you ...
and you're there for me ...
Are you waiting for
Heart in hand
Woman and man
See me where I stand I am
Heart
Heart in hand
~vertical horizon~
