clueless, numb
searching, waiting, hoping
blank… futile… alive… real…
ending, mending, reaching
rescued, saved

  1. The journey from “Lost” to “Found.” Through numbness and hope, “mending, reaching,” being “rescued” and “saved.” This reads especially significantly in the diamante form. Really well-expressed, Rosema!

  2. Oh yay! Another new form to enjoy 🙂 Sometimes just a few words can denote so much rather than a huge page of it. The whole process of one’s life being lost and struggling and searching for the right path and finally finding it and being rescued… you’ve put that in a beautiful way.

    1. oh thank you dear NJ! I am actually fond of write short poems. I am not sure why but I prefer them succinct. And I am glad to know you got the whole journey of this little poetry. 🙂
