Waiting for an echo

We harbor
a deep fear
of being
forgotten —
that our life
isn’t even
on the radar
of someone.
So we write
to the world,
waiting for
an echo.

  1. A nice way to put it, Tyler, and thank you for being the first to “like” both of my posts today. You’re fast! If you have a minute, please take a look at FG again, as there are some additional photos. Beautiful poem. I’ve sent a link to your site to some poet friends here in VA. Hope it is a beautiful weekend, WG

    • You are most welcome, Elizabeth, and thank you for your kind words! I also appreciate the referral of my blog to your friends. I love eavesdropping on blogs that catch my interest (as yours does). Guess I am living up to my blog’s name 🙂 Hope you had a wonderful weekend, my friend! Beautiful pictures…they are very inspiring, as is your writing!
      Tyler 🙂

      • Thank you, Tyler. Eavesdropping is an interesting way to put it. I think you are closer to the truth- that we all hope that someone is listening/reading. My mother’s birthday and daughter’s birthday both yesterday. I made a new recipe for my mother’s b’day cake and it turned out very well. With daughter in LC, missed sharing her birthday, but spoke by phone while her husband made her cheesecake. All in all a good weekend, and the sun returned here today. I’m hoping for a good deal in DC tonight so all may get on with their lives. My friends here are much into poetry. Poet Laureate of VA is in the network, and when the opportunity comes I’ll pass a link to your blog on to her. I know she will enjoy reading your poems. Best wishes, Elizabeth

    This pretty much sums up my blogging life hehe. Fab stuff 🙂

    • Thank you! Yes, blogging is all about launching your soul out into the world and waiting for the sharks 2 circle (just kidding!) It’s been an enjoyable experience for me, as I hope it has been for you. Have a wonderful weekend 🙂

  3. You nailed it beautifully!

    Nice work. It seems like you have your echo.

    • Thank you, Tim! Poetry & photography are my true callings in life, but my bliss doesn’t pay the bills yet! I started blogging this March w/ no real expectations, just wanted to share my voice w/ the world. Since then, I’ve found that there are many kindred spirits w/ whom I share a collective consciousness. I look forward to following your blog and wish you only the best! Have a wonderful day, my friend 🙂
