As sure as leaves will fall
at season’s change
and rain will drop
as clouds rearrange
I have fallen
through new doors opened
the key I thought
was lost forever
you have found so cleverly
the lock had suffered
yet, not broken for eternity~

This one has truly touched me as I can relate. Short but yet so expressive. Beautiful poem Lauren!
Thanks so much for your beautiful comment, Catherine! I truly appreciate it and your visit!
Thanks so much, Spiral Dreamer! I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment!
What’s amazing is that neglect and even simple inattention can do some nefarious things to the locks;it’s a great thing when we get recalled to our senses enough to repair what we set awry.
Very true, Kathryn, thanks for your comment!
wow Lauren what a beauty…
Aww…thanks, Soma! xo
To find love again is a beautiful thing. Big hugs and blessings to you, Lauren. 🙂
Thanks, Cynthia, and hugs and blessings to you, too!
Love lost is a heart closed
A key, into the tears of grief tossed
Never will I dare to have my heart exposed
Then you came along and dove deep within
Holding your breath, risking life, found my rusty key
Polished it with words and deeds into one trustworthy
And coaxed open my heart’s lock with your kiss
Oh, Lauren – your verses, my triggers. A good poet writes great poems. A master (mistress) of her craft – provokes others.
Wow, Eric, your poem is breathtaking and so is your wonderful complement. I can’t explain in this reply how much your words mean to me. Thank you so much, my friend! Hugs to you!
This is beautiful Lauren.
I really love the line “and rain will drop as clouds rearrange”. And “fallen through new doors” a just lovely
Thanks so much, Christine, and I hope you’ve had a good day! Sending you zillions of hugs! HBL ♥
A beautiful poem as your work so often is.

Lovely poem, Lauren. (I especially like “the lock had suffered / yet, not broken for eternity~ ” !!! )
Thanks, again, Betty, and it’s nice to see you! Hope you’re doing well! xx
