NaBloPoMo Day 13 - More "I Am"

Just a quick post today and tomorrow since I'm going to be out of town for a conference.  This poem came from the same prompt as Day 1, but two years later.

I am the Echo, the sound of what you have lost;
I am the haunting melody of the panflute,
Reminding you of what you never had.
I am the rocks at the shoreline,
Worn smooth by the tumbling waves.
The ocean is my mother, the sky my father.
I am wistfulness personified.

  1. Oh my goodness!!!!! What simplistic, profound beauty! This is haunting, perhaps the best piece of poetry I've ever read for conveying a feeling.
