Z to A in 26 Days – Nov 15th – N for Nostalgia

Travel past places
Where memories
Near to my mind
Dear to thoughts
Were first created
Emotions raining
On mind, unable
To choose single
Memory to etch
For the moment
I’m caught again
In a quandary of
Feelings, where
Voices from time
Echo in my mind
Reminisce about
The many smiles
A longing arrives
For that moment
Live it once more
No reason, logic
Yet it glows, like
Some sudden idea
A desire restores
Like little pearls
In my heartshore

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Live it once more
    No reason, logic
    Yet it glows, like
    Some sudden idea
    A desire restores
    Like little pearls
    In my heartshore..

    lovely ending…
    love the flow of emotions.
    Thanks for linking up with potluck.

  2. Fantastic write, and it takes me back to those days when, just once in a blue moon, I’ll go to where I once went and see whether any of the memories still hold me in their clutches as they had once. By the way, I enjoyed the interview on the dispatch and hope that one day I’ll see your goals attained on the wall display at Chapters!

  3. It is wonderful to read a new word that is so brilliant that you just hope that it gets used over and over again and finds it’s way into a dictionary. That word “heartshore” clearly impressed many in this memorable post.

  4. “A desire restores
    Like little pearls
    In my heartshore” — i think this perfectly describes that feeling of want, of those days gone by.. of (sigh)…


  5. Leo- you always surprise me on how you pull off as many writing challenges as you do with one poem. Theres one of your talents. 🙂 Then your talent with words is inspirational. Great piece. 🙂
