Quadrille #31: Still

Lifetime of Waiting


Stillborn dreams

Without magic of birth

Hibernating in time

Dispirited with standstill


Bound by life’s shackles

Yearning for more

Crack in the matrix

Freedom unleashed


Creative curiosity

Fueling stilled passion

Fermenting bubbles

Explode with delight


Intoxicating wondrous images

 Power beyond words

Lifting the soul





About Olga

I have always had an affinity for artistic endeavors and the beauties of nature. The power of the word combined with photography have become my creative spark.

    I liked the close ups of the flowers. I also liked the line “Dispirited with standstill” which is apparently changed as the poem progresses to explosions of delight.

        By the way Sanaa, I need a bit of guidance. I’m not able to comment on non-WordPress sites and I’ve tried multiple times and nothing works. The comment flies into a virtual world dungeon. I’ve loved your poetry and WP is not allowing me to send the message. I type in my user name and my URL, but no go. ????
