Signal Fires
Winds of misfortune scattered jagged
fragments of my heart along a deserted highway.
I became a castaway on a roadside of spacious ache
to be filled with the desperation of unknown coordinates.
I built sandcastles in the path of incoming desert breezes,
and furnished them with half-starved expectations.
When my eyes filled with tears as each castle flew past,
I blamed the smoke from the green wood of native signal fires.

Author's Notes:
Just trying to get back into the habit of writing again.

Well Jody, you just proved the old adage that once you learn how to ride a bike, you never forget it! These words prove that you haven't forgotten and you're right back in the habit of writing! Great work.  Henry

TRYING to get back into writing again? What in the hell do you mean? I think you HAVE!! Holy smokes here Ms. Gorgeous, you took my breath away and gave it back, all in one fell swoop.

Loving you, and this, from here.

Glad to see ya posting too. I love this dreamy gem. I especially like

'I built sandcastles in the path of incoming moon tides, and furnished them with half-starved dreams.'   

That's a great line.

ohhhhhh how I missed your writing I loved it just breathtaking in every word touching my heart as I read Perfect just perfect

Comment By: FreePelagic Mind on July 15, 2008 02:59:01 PM Report
I think its difficult to write unless you have an ispiration to do so. Otherwise it becomes just a sketch pad of ideas that can be useful in future, you only have to look at my work to see that principle demonstarted clearly because most if not all my work always need "more" doing to it. a bit like weeding really...


But this piece is inspirational so you need not worry, the images work well and it has an easy style..

Comment By: FreeAdri on July 15, 2008 02:54:25 PM Report
