Wandering...


THIS week's Poetry Potluck ...Based on Moods, Feelings, Emotions..plenty there to go around...count me in!  How about you?  So much talent...Please check the site to join in!



WALK WITH ME

Dust falls from
The Book of Demons.
Dead flies shift in the silt.
I remove the tome from a shelf,
delve into lists
of devils I have known,
from A to Z.

When darkness rises,
who will come with me?
Lesser angels
or minor demons,
each owning
half of the other?

Walk with me....

I can't believe this.. I meant; this looks like the first part to my Poem - Walk with Me.. Go on and check it out directly at http://www.intinglligent.com/2010/10/walk-with-me.html
I was staring blankly at your words.. I was thinking how could someone shared a feeling which I thought no one else comprehend?
My dear,I am glad that I found you through Monday Potluck, and here are my entires – different feelings for both..

Hope to see you in my blog soon..
See you around..

Hi Krislin Neo-
I am a deep believer in synchronicity..so why not the "coincidence" of like minds. For me it is a spiritual confirmation..so glad to hear from you..will definitely be visiting!!

Eric Alder said...

I think there are other beings that lie between angels and demons, beings that are equal parts good and evil. They're called humans.

Nice piece!

Lyn,
This is a beautiful and poignant piece. I believe we walk with angels and demons on this earth.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Lyn said...

Hi flaubert-
Lucky to have found you..and thanks so much for the visit and kind words!

Lyn said...

Hi 700miles-
So pleased you liked this..thank you!!

Derrick said...

Very telling, Lyn. This is so simple and so deep. Love the words you've used. Emotions we may sometimes wish to deny. Walk with me? Who will, indeed?!

Lyn said...

Hi Derrick-
I think it's the desire to reveal, that leads us to poetry..ordinary conversation can be inhibiting...on the other hand..it's just writing!! Thanks, Derrick..

JamieDedes said...

Lyn said...

Hi Jamie-
Thanks so much for visiting and for your kind words!

Once upon a time, I attended a religious college, and there were many old dusty tomes full of lists of angels, demons and martyrs. Since I was a library assistant, I think I touched them all. I could smell the dust reading your poem.

My potluck offering:
