doors upon the sea

Poetry under the palm trees continue….

doors upon the sea

who am i to tell the roses
not to bloom
how do I stop the hands of time
or silence a lonely wolf
howling at the moon
how can i not think of you
it’s like asking my heart
to remember not to bleed
or a pianist who lost his hands
to forget his keys
my beautiful muse
tell me I can lock these thoughts out
convince me
I can put doors upon the sea

.

.

Am I wrong to love my muse?

    1. Smiling. The palm trees are very good for me. When I sit there in the calm of this little island, I can
      actually forget what is happening in this world. I am isolated like everyone else, but in a much more
      relaxing and inspiring setting.

      Thank you for your beautiful woprds and thoughts. Always treasure them

            1. Laughing so hard.

              Seriously Punam. And I am being very serious, too. This blog can get so unmanageable. I am not complaining in any way. I am blessed. I am certain many a blogger would love to have this problem, but it has become so unmanageable, I am missing so many replies when I comment on other blogs. There are so many replies that go unliked or unanswered. I am losing them from the constant messages and comments coming in.

              In the future, when you see little emojis from me, please feel free to not respond. Seriosuly. TRUST ME, i wouldn’t even notice.

              My philosophy is this. Our time on Earth is so short and precious. We already dedicate so much of it to blogging & our blogging friends. I don’t want you wasting any of your time looking for my emojis to like them. I rather you spend the extra moments with your loved ones.

              All my words are sincere and coming from the heart. And you don’t need to respond to this message either. That you come and leave your amazing, touching comments is more than enough. Grateful for all of your words. You can never imagine how I treasure you.

              1. I am glad I made you laugh, Andrew! As I was scrolling, the thought did cross my mind, how difficult it must be for you to keep track of all the comments! Hats off to you for responding to each…I agree we are nothing without the comments we receive. But honestly I am very happy with the limited number of comments I get(compared to you). I know you are not complaining and that is the reason I admire you. No, seriously I do. To respond to each comment and then to visit others blogs and comment there! Phew!!

                No worries, sweetheart. I had the time so I did that. Don’t worry, I am sitting with my loved ones right now. And you are a part of my blogging family, so all’s good. πŸ˜€

                Take care and now YOU don’t respond to this. Okay!

  5. Good evening Drew. Actually it is after midnight so I should say good morning.
    Your poem is one of those masterpieces that one can never forget. It is also unforgivable beauty. The metaphors caress and their beauty hurts the soul. Hence their unforgivable quality.

    it’s like asking my heart
    to remember not to bleed
    or a pianist who lost his hands
    to forget his keys

    The gold of the soul shines in those lines. The sadness is palpable bleed/lost/ forgot.
    At the end it is a call to liberation.

    tell me I can lock these thoughts out
    convince me
    I can put doors upon the sea (which basically is impossible and divine at the same time.)

    Am I rambling ? Because I feel like I am. Definitely I am because I can’t find my way out of this poem. The poem locks you inside its beauty. There are no doors out.
    I should have not said anything. I should have been silent in front of the majesty of your verse.
    Drew, this is a classic and you are a great poet. Did I tell you that before?
    Have a superb weekend.
    Gabriela.

    1. Good afternoon G,

      Apologies for my super late reply. The internet on this part of the island has been very sporadic
      and I had a death of someone close to me that left me very down hearted.

      You are so kind you have me blushing. Seriously burning my cheeks.

      Grateful you mentioned those lines. This entire piece developed from those lines.

      Your are much to generous. So humbled by your beautiful comment.
      Ah, to hear these things from you, someone who I admire so much, well, it leaves me shaking my head.
      Gratitude and love for your my precious friend.
      Please be safe.

  7. No, not at all. Yield, yield to the Muse. You cannot leave us bereft of your poetic words! In this time of increasing isolation, sadness and grief we need all creative voices to speak. Keep on keeping on, my friend. It is no small thing to bring joy, hope and encouragement to others. πŸ˜‰β€οΈ

        1. Katy, apologies for my late response. I took a little time off from the blog to mourn my dear friend.
          The little I know about you. you are such a sweet person. And I see how you interact with other on your
          blogs. I say to myself, this is the kind of person I want to be in my life (even if it is only my blogging
          life). We need more positive ladies like this in this world.

          Grateful and thrilled you enjoy reading me. Hopefully, I will always be able to meet your expectations.
          Wishing you a great week as well.

  12. I think you are correct, dear Lonely,
    You can put doors on the sea, but figuratively, not literally. So, you are a poet, so you can do it!
    This poem is a deep reaching thought, with questions, especially one. I think you have answered it.
    To ask if you are wrong to love your Muse, is like asking is it wrong to love?
    As you are an incurable romantic, how can any love be wrong, even if it turns out…. not well?
    Your palm tree is producing some sweet, thoughtful fruits.

    Well, I never knew how much work it is to be locked up at home. I live in a busy place of the city, and after 5 weeks of isolation/distancing, there is a growing restlessness in the streets.

    I wish you all the best of health and safety!
    Resa
