I once saw a carpet of cloud

  and I soared like a bird

The wind beneath me

My heart in my mouth.

I once spied the sun through the trees

  and I smiled

The warmth on my face

  a heat in my heart.

Today I can feel the mist lifting

Freeing my soul

Chaining my fear

Belief in tomorrow looms

I am scared to believe.

    • Thank you. You know, very rarely (but more so these days) I find I can write something which I think is uplifting and hopeful. This poem is special to me … I have been through a lot the last few years and it was a moment of hope, a glimmer that I could get through it all and everything would turn out okay (which it has). 🙂

    • I am thrilled with your comments, thank you! I was delighted to see my link on your list of new poets to explore. All I know is I have written poems since I was 12 … I don’t know anything about the mechanics of right or wrong, I just write 🙂 I looked at your site, but couldn’t see how to contact you. I will look again now as I would love to be involved in poets rally week 40. Thanks again … I am now officially calling myself a poet *laughs* 🙂
