Arkansas SKE Road & A Yellow Stick-up Note

abandoned star
SKE road
only wood and
AR stone remain
like a forgotten movie set

a roadside
on a forgotten road
diverted crisscrossed &
engineered off the map

and for this
weary traveler
at last
the long day’s
shadows fall

  1. My oh my ~ my dear friend Beez~ how so right & beautifully said & heartfelt & true are your words!! Wow! You caught the essence of the place for me ~ I had such a strong rush of emotion ~ sadness really ~ I find that I tend to look for places people have forgotten were even there ~ now invisible to most. Yes ~ growing older & loss of family that I have had this past year. My older sister & my older brother passed 6 months apart ~ out of 9 we are now a family of 4. And unfortunately we are now not very close ~ partly because of so much pain. ~ tragic.
    Thank you dear Beez for always supporting my work & being there for me! You are truly a blessing to me & a dear dear friend. I would hope someday to meet the Great Ms Beez!! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ


  2. Oh this so stirs emotions feelings of being alone .. the shadow that falls at the end of the day like a blanket to the travellers the persons isolation I think there is often a feeling of humiliation for people who are alone … abandoned .. society places so much meaning on family relationships etc for those who have no connections it can be like a shaming of what already sometimes people feel they are lacking in or what they have or haven't done that makes them solitaire. Anyway here i go raving on over the edge lol I really felt this poem for many many reasons and more it is wonderful how your expression here abandonment the sadness I felt strong.. always b x
