An Ode to Bloggers Gone … September 12, 2014

An Ode to Bloggers Gone

Where went the bloggers
When their muse dried up,
And their papers written
Now memories,
Dry as a desert rose …

There’s no word no news,
Only a blank page where once
We read brilliant words.

Did they fall into vanilla skies
Or drown in green autumn wine …
Perhaps like moles
They’ve hidden in holes …
With a gin stain
To define their souls.

I know not where these bloggers went …
Perhaps to Gehenna
or Dante’s Paradise …
But as long as rivers flow
And the sun and moon still set,
There’s hope that yet
We’ll read their moving odes.

(c) G.s.k. ’14

from poetry written for Barbara’s last Thursday prompt for Red Wolf Poems.

    • It’s so very sad … I’ve felt moments of loss I never thought possible to feel for someone I’ve never even seen. Virtual world it may be … but my inner self isn’t convinced.

    • I do know what you mean phylor … it’s happened to me and more often than I care to remember. I became very sad when one of my favorite bloggers, whom I spoke to a lot daily, suddenly disappeared, never to post again. I still get teary eyed believe it or not.


    • Thanks for sharing this note … it’s interesting how we get to know people so intimately … and so sad when all of a sudden they leave us for one reason or another. I hope your friend beat the cancer and will write again soon.
