Yay! I'm back for a Poetry Party!

It's been a long time since I've done one of these...
Christine at Abbey of the Arts posts an about every other week, based on an image & theme she selects. It's been months for me, but I'm back for another attempt at (bad) poetry!

It's easy to feel tossed about
by gentle waves or raging winds
It's easy to feel cut loose,
anchorless, adrift.

It's tempting to think of life
with no ties, no bonds, no restraints...

but in my heart I long
for rock-solid confidence
for sure and certain knowledge
to remember that your name
is written indelibly on my heart


  1. So glad you came back to the Party Anne. I love the tension you explore here between the vagaries of life and the anchor deep within.

  2. love that last stanza
