Just a Few Reminders
Little Thoughts by artemis53
Poem of the Month contest entry



You are in my little thoughts
not those blaring, grandiose
ideologies
but the very tiny ones
that count
and therefore
will
last.

In a thunderstorm
you are not the lightning
nor the angry sky...

you are that first raindrop
crystalline and cool
upon my hand
a delight to the parched land
and thirsty
rivulets...
the promise
of new blooms in the arid fields

or that sigh
that escapes my lips
as I see the mallards
once more alight
in the pond
promising
a whimsical family to come
identical and yet
so different.

You have been that stray rainbow
split from the lamp's crystals
bursting into a spectrum
about my living room
or that one steppingstone
above the water
enabling me to cross
the only narrow point
of the river
promising...
to safely take me to
that other
chosen side.

Yes.
You're just one of those little things
that cannot be forgotten

and I haven't.

Author Notes
Just came to me so I put it down. To myself, "Blackbird' has always been one of the most beautiful songs and yet so simple. It's a tiny song that has stayed with me for a very long time.
