Poetry Thursday " Unattended"



Unattended

Knocking nonchalantly at my back door
I’m oblivious to her presence
Politely she raps again
I fail to recognize the sound
Persistently she tries again
Commotion superceded
Determined, she calls out
Whispers drift unattended
Frustrated, she calls again
Echo fused with white noise
Abrasively she hollers
Head cocked, I speculate
Hesitant, I discount it
Brazenly she opens the door
Startled,
I heed,
My Intuition

Hope it was only the cat!
But seriously, I can relate. I have taken to only answering the phone when I please. This was a difficult habit to break , but now, ahh the freedom. errmm and obviously the cell phone remains uncharged.
Cheers

Hi giggles,

Fall has come a knocking at the back door. :)

Hi Brian, yes Fall has come brashly to the back door and very hard to ignore! Now intuition, that’s another thing, she can be an obscure suitor!

Abhay and Madd....I love the autumn too and the vibrant colors it brings.

Crunchy.....I wish it was just the cat.....then I'd know what to do!! lol....somethings just can't be ignored....although we are determined to do so!

ren-cat ....not sure I want to know what's going to happen next!

Gorgeous fall photos. And I enjoyed the poem, too.

Wow! What kind of trees are those? So beautiful. The only red in my yard is a croton. And an occasional cardinal.

Artful personification - and I actually didn't even see it coming. Then it did and I thought, "Of course! Intuition! Brilliant!"

Love the photos and if I haven't told you before your poetry as well. This was wonderful! I also want to thank you for your never ending words of friendship, I read them and paste them to my heart for safe keeping!
XOXO
Lisa

Wish I heard Intuition knocking at my door more often.

giggles said...
