Magpie Tales #56

While You Were Out
Snuggled in dried
Brown wrapper
Tight fit
Same as I
Wonder who I am
Was I really here before

I've returned from
Short stay away
Don't recognize anything
Did I leave as I was sleeping
Where is the marker
Was there something on my mind

Review the tape
Try to remember
Seek the end of
The red thread
Attached to all I know
Just as I reach for it
It slips away

If not found today
I will look for it
Again tomorrow

Lovely. I like the lines:

I will look for it
Again tomorrow

That speaks to me.

A creative creation!

I like your site too, very, very nice and "clean." So appealing. Thanks for worrying about the Rumi goat. I've heard she is just fine.

Sherry Blue Sky said...

I love this, Annell.......trying to pick up the threads.......glad you are back!

Kim Nelson said...

This offered two scenarios: Literal absence and reincarnation...

hedgewitch said...

I found this just fascinating, Annell. A very original, well=written and as others have said, creative approach to the chambered garlic, both the division and yet the sense of each having a place somewhere in the bulb that's been lost.

I really like how we all take different paths for the same picture!

Tess Kincaid said...

Seek the end of the red thread. I love that.

Intriguing! Love the red thread reference.

Trellissimo said...

Lesson on how to pick up where you left off needed, perhaps? LOL

Lucy Westenra said...

I'm sure you'll find the end of that elusive red thread and then everything will begin to look better.
