I found this poem scrawled in pencil on the back of an old cigarette packet which was tucked in a side pocket of an old rucksack I was throwing out.

I remember writing it when, in my late teens, I was living semi-rough on the resort coast of North Wales after the only serious row I had with my mother. I had placed my sleeping bag on this warm night on a grass verge. Behind me was a lighted window with a vase of daffodils ....


Shadows cast by daffodils
black against the wall

a feather lost by a lone and migrant bird
floating downwards

silhouettes of daffodils darken, darken
and thoughts like unexpected feathers
forever fall

It's always an adventure to discover an old poem or journal we've written, and it often takes us back to that place and reminds us how far we've come in life--like hearing an old song, but better because we wrote it. Your voice was clear and evocative then just as it is now.

That's amazing. You wrote that when you were a teenager? My dear, you truly have a gift. You were born to be a poet - it's a pleasure to read your work!

No fun to fight with the one who loves you the most. Your words captured the hurt .And the loneliness when you left the nest. CC

Yes, wonderful "snippet from your past" ... you've obviously been writing all your life, which makes you the master of all writers TODAY. *hugs*

Thanks for sharing your personal thoughts then, while reading this I too, can remember times as such and the thoughts that followed and the beliefs in those thoughts established statements/clubs inside the mind to beat hell out of myself with, instead of recognizing them for what they were, questions.
