A Wall – Meaning Full #poetry #travel #history

There are so many walls in our world. Ponder the wall and the words. There is a message each wall is called upon to convey.

In this wall

you place your prayers

sorrows

beseiged

centurys

shared

where these hands

now touch your stone

another’s heat

another’s

groan

I stand with the ages

appealed

and weak

take these cares

to my heart

please speak

A tribute to a wall that has the sorrows of the ages in its morter

A new horizon

hope on each face

doubt and sorrow

there is little trace

we move forward

marked for a new stage

America

a grand place

***

look

there it is

the island in the gray

welcoming ships

persons from far away

a grand start

a new day

A tribute to Ellis Island and the beginnings it helped launch

“Just a road trip”

“going home”

“meeting my soldier in Cali”

“…not all roads lead to Rome”

*

she’s getting married

he’s a trucker who get’s paid

all on a journey

for the moment

it’s the same

*

route 66

a gem in disguise

old and narrow

it carried many lives

*

some to meet love

others to forget

I  on a journey

a wall with people

I had never met

*

reminded me of others

a view of the past

lives joined by words

tomorrow please don’t forget

*****

On my road trip we saw many things. When I saw this poster on a wall I thought of timeless sentiments  inscribed over the years .The wailing wall and the walls at Ellis Island just two of many walls conveying a message of hope, despair, tears, running away journeying toward new beginnings

All Is No More #poetry

when life closes in where does one search? A wall, a sea, a God?

Kiss the wall

embrace the sands of the past

appeal to life’s eclipse

… no answer

mourn the day

curse the night

life ebbs

… no where to search

weep by candle light

inhale sea’s deep

hope for what is not

…last breath

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. - Edgar Allan Poe
