Winds of Loss

A broken heart is easily burned,
For it lies on the ground as tenders.

The love it needs, does it yearn,
But weak for lack of defenders.

The spirit tries to soar so high,
That it loses orientation.

Sights that are seen aren’t real, oh nigh.
Lack of destination.

The soul is eternal in pain of loss,
For lack of what it needs.

The time now comes for me to toss,
With hands full of seeds.

But love is gone on winds of loss,
As I fall to my knees.


Richard “Rickey” N. Boydstun, Jr.

Great first post. i liked it. it spoke from the heart, both yours and mine.
"sight are seen that aren't real. oh nigh.
lack of destination."
i feel it and i like it. keep up the good werk.


 We all got somethin' we need to atone for.

A lovely visual ... so much essence of life and love soaring and flying in the winds.  A beautiful poem.

Welcome to Passions!
As a lover of nature, I have seen loss there, and in my own life. This was exquisite in that you mentioned seeds....and I thought of how the wind carries them. Looking forward to reading more.

To get these towns behind me and I
Will gladly reap what we may sow--
I am there for you ...

Are you waiting for

Woman and man
See me where I stand I am
Heart

Rick, my Friend,
     I am at a loss for words.  The emotion that resonates from this poem is as real as the very air around me.  Every time I read it  I like it a little more.  It has always been one of my favorites of yours, and I am so glad that now you have joined us at Passions you decided to share it with everyone else.  Keep it up.  I know that everyone here is waiting for the next one as much as I am!

and I am all the better for it~

Good opener my friend, welcome to Passions.

 If I could paint a portrait, of this life in which I've led, and somehow sketch a story, of the visions in my head, I'd start out with a canvas, stretched tightly in a frame, and in the bottom corner, I'd leave room to sign my name. (Michelle A. Bartley)

Oh, now,
    What are we doing on the second page already?  I think I just 'accidentally' bumped you back to the top!  Well, this poem deserves a second read.....and a third....and a fourth....

This is such a "feeling" piece. I, too, loved the idea of spreading the seeds to the wind...there was hope in that, but then, the winds of loss...such lovely descriptive writing. Welcome and thank you for sharing this.

Oops...I don't know why I keep doing that.  I guess the wind dropped a seed on my keyboard.
