I fumbled at my nerves on Earth

40

I am a living acre without design
an apparent order of action in anonymity
this wind and sun are my neighbors here
i yet attain a shadow or of a squirrel

a silent truce with general nature
and the idea of a plan, severely retarded further
by the poignant excess of luxuries to the few –
I am a living care of temporary possession

an apparent cause of love in union
this landscape and tree are my playmates here
i yet attain a shadow or an art of flower
a silent truce with universal chance

it might be famine all around, but we still
live from smile to smile, by happiness
and small wonders fed, the years
i have been without a home.

      • You wove a tapestry of appreciation of everything beautiful we possess- so you shooted, and in the end you scored, with the irrefutable words
        “it might be famine all around, but we still

        I know interpretation is subjective, so my interpretation could be different to how you intended it to be.
        Beautiful writing nonetheless Wuj.

  1. It was certainly a positive note 🙂 But that’s what was so beautiful about this piece. It was like you had written a story. It started with an absolute beginning which flowed into a climax at the end…..
    Thank you for the generous compliment W. Yes, I can definitely empathise!! I’ve been writing about similar subjects recently, though my writing leaves less to the imagination! It just throws it all out 🙂 LOL! I guess our styles are different- but it’s good, it adds variety huh??! 😉 That’s why I am drawn to your work- it always intrigues me.
