Meet me

A poem for poets United I have been busy with work but found some time to finish my poem Still needs work. I enjoyed last week and thank your for such a great community. I might have to visit some of you after the weekend as we are going away soon (without computer) to the West Coat for labour weekend.

Gromley statue in Avon river

Meet me in our conversations

"Who are you" her beloved shouted
"Well" she said
"I am the one who lives in your mind
I am a dream matching your believes
I am confirming your ideas
I am the story you wanted to hear
but my story is ever evolving,
 keep reading it
your believes might match my dream
My ideas might be your inspiration
as I emerge from the  water
and feel the breeze against my skin
Join me under a new horizon
on my travels under the stars
Meet me in our conversations
 I will be me, even if it might mean
becoming a trace in your memory"

  1. LOL...What a girl...what a girl!!I loved her absolutely, Marja!! :) But all this has changed now. We no longer give the art of conversation the respect it is due. Omnipresent and all-pervasive, mobile phones have hijacked even the romantic lives. Sigh!

  2. I find this to be very poignant. Sometimes we talk to ourselves unknowingly.. yet we learned much from those

  3. The deeper we go inside our minds, the more stillness there is, yet better understanding!

  5. Hi Marja - so glad you met up with some wonderful people, the statue is just lovely .. while your poem is special ... 'come join me under the stars and travel where our minds and conversations go' - certainly when my mother was ill and confined to bed we had conversations like this ... but our mind needs to be at peace and to wander where it wishes ..

    Enjoy the weekend away ... cheers Hilary

  6. Beautiful reminder! I love the narrative voice coming from inside to outside and the recognition that we sometimes bury this dear love before her time!

  7. Lovely poem about a deep truth. There is something about fine writing that resonates with the spirit and elicits an emotional response.

  8. So nice to meet a New Zealand poet. Your country is said to be very like coastal British Columbia, very beautiful. I really like "I am a dream matching your beliefs."

  11. The idea of being who the beloved wanted while reminding him/her that change is going to happen is very cool.

  12. Hello, Marja. Thank you for your visit. The "thinking" statue looks perfect for your poem. Love how you capture the inner self, "I am a dream matching your beliefs".

  13. It is important always to be yourself. "Being me" is all we can be if we want to be authentic.

  17. We are constantly in a state of flux, whether this is caused by our environment or growing more mature, the conversation that we have with others and with ourselves is always inspirational.

  18. Well thought out poem, Marja. How often is it in the falling-out-of-love phase we realise that the person we had loved was in fact a projection of the ideal we had in our mind...
