A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)



Was it only yesterday?
When we pledged true
love- our mind body and
soul to each other.

And slowly with each
changing season of

from the hot passionate
warmth of summer,
scorching any doubt of
affection or suspicion;

the relentless, irrevocable
momentum of inertia
took us forward to
this autumn of our
union, as we watch

like dead, withered
leaves, each promise
each vow
forsaken and trod
underfoot –
as we watch…

a little coldness envelop
the heart in our
progress towards the
cold bleak winter of
this bond;

with no hope of
spring ahead?

  1. Well, it will sure get some now
    But bleakness from you somehow
    Goes too deep
    Makes one weep
    Spring comes — that Nature does avow!
