Poem of the Week: Pleasure


Once here, much like my dog once was,

A presence from years long past,

Then, it slipped away,

As if carried off by the wind.


Now, it’s absent, missing,

A puzzle with a lost piece,

And I search for it still,

An answer to the vast expanse of infinity.


I desire to understand,

To plot infinity on life’s number line,

And to find that elusive pleasure.

As I cycle to school, flowers silently witness,

And birds serve as timely reminders.


The sudden outburst from a child,

A reflection of times gone by,

Leaves me wondering,

Was I ever so carefree and unrestrained?
