Rambling (O.S.I.)

Hi all,

This poem is written for O.S.I. This week's theme is rambling.

Foolish hearts
Sitting real tall
Shooting with the wind
Riding the morning sun
Chasing our stilted shadows
Following children after dark
Drinking in summer’s endless nights

The dawn laughs
Wet, new morning
Rain showers soak us
Dancing feet in couplets
Embracing the body of time
Riding on the surprise of love
Living and loving and rambling on

There's a song on one of my dad's old records called "Rambles of Spring" ... it's stuck in my head now : ) It's very different from your poem here, but it shares some themes. I'm off to try to find it on iTunes now ... :-)

Just felt it in front of my eyes as I read through...Amazing...Is this a special form of writing??...I like the pyramid formation...the essence is well captured and woven...:))

Great, W.G. I was riding with along with you even before I read that word (in both verses your poet was riding).

My favorite was this line:
Rain showers soak us
mainly because we found out who us was in the 'stanza' before.
Second fave was:
Dancing feet in couplets
