Writng 201: Poetry
Prompt: Landscape, form: found poem, device: enumeratio
I haven’t followed the suggested form for this one. Too much work. 😛
I want to find you, away
From these four walled brightly lit rooms where people sit in a daze
Away from the dull voices, the meaningless walks with a definite destination
Away from a place where trees grow in near lines and the grass is levelled
Away from all this order, neatness and death.
I want to find you, again and again
Discover everything that I had lost, forgotten, ignored and unloved
In a world of ticking clocks and calculated meals and tight schedules.
I want to find you in a place
Where I can love you like I want to
Love your hands and your eyes, your fingers, your forehead, your smiles
Where I can listen to the shifts of your voice, your laugh, your breath
Where I can lie down, feel the grass pressed hard against my knuckles,
Look up at the endless sky patterned with haphazard branches and swaying clouds
Where I can know and love, for sure, all that you are,
I want to find you where I can love you,
I want to find you, away.
