seven heartaches

clouds on windless high by anelephantcant

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

seven heartaches

I watch silver stars shine in the sky
golden sun rise every morning
I wonder if I’ll ever forget her face
with every new day I see dawning

I hear the sounds of happiness
laughter carried on the breeze
dogs bark with joy at every sound
birds sing in hedgerows and in trees

I don’t understand how this can be
life goes on as intended
has Mother Nature missed the point
does she not know the world has ended

in one more week I head on home
seven dusks and seven daybreaks
one more week to think about the past
seven nights and seven heartaches

I taste her in my morning coffee
see her beauty flowering in the park
to the music of my broken heart
her shadow dances in the dark

and now I’m in another country
there is sunshine far less rain
time drifts on like clouds on windless high
I hope in vain for far less pain

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
