Swept Away

Linking with the Sunday Muse for Muse # 113
Hosted by the utterly awe inspiring poet Shay!
Come join us!

My heart is like a child that still stands beside me
Uncertain but hopeful of what the future holds
We watch the world together standing at the steps
Hoping the world will see the beauty we hold
So I wear my best hat even on the windiest of days
Yet it is always my heart that gets swept away.

  2. Ah, it is good always to wear one's best hat! We may not know what the future holds, but it is good to be prepared in the best possible way and present our best possible selves. Don't let your heart be swept away! Hang on.

  5. This has such a wistful tone, Carrie. Its very simplicity makes it stronger, and I love the fall of the words, which like autumn leaves, hide the truth of their age and dissolution in beauty.

  6. Oh, I SO love your closing lines. Just beautiful, Carrie. I had trouble finding words this morning. I seem to have gone silent inside under all the rhetoric. I hope it stops after voting day; hope that one loud angry horrible voice is silenced.

  7. Sounds nice, Carrie. Yes, girls' hearts are fickle, easily swept away. But not for long term.
    And so far my readers are 0 to 5 in favor of my girls.
