Looking For Local

Poetry Jam
Loosing Local

Lost
All unknown 
No memories here
I Moved
I Moved

I knew the streets
The trees had names
but 
things there changed
as 
 all things do

more then 50 years in one hometown
a move makes it not easy to turn around

And here
to much is new
I do not know what to do
can’t return to what I had
things here are not so bad

But
     what can I say is local now
          tears I guess have joined the spaces
                     of
trees with names and local places
just to much new
before the night again becomes the day
lost       no memories here     I say

change is needed but
comes with a cost

local is lost
PS
 I guess there is one part
A river runs through 
both old and new
and 
that holds my heart
so local IS HERE
 and 
it runs
between the trees and over the ground
LOCAL CAN BE FOUND

  1. Wherever we go we carry our home within us, i love the truth that local is in the heart not the location. Nicely done.

  4. moving can be so hard...you lose those attachments...but also all the history, the knowing what to expect...where to find things....its comfort...and it takes a while to develop in new places....

  6. Agree with you. Change comes with a cost.
    We always wish to find a point of reference & think that things will be just as the way we knew... We are in for a shock. Thankfully, some matches are found :)
    Nicely expressed!

  7. I can imagine the newness after 50 years in one place. That is a beautiful river in the photo...hopefully, in time, local will begin to feel more familiar.

  8. Yes I agree local can be found though moving is a jarring thing--especially after you have live somewhere 50 years. I have now lived here in our town for about that long--though we did live abroad for a couple of years. It would be hard to leave for good.

  9. I really like the connector between the old and the new being a river. It definitely is hard to change, but I think after a while we adjust. At least that is the hope.

  10. Rae Ann, I almost did not comment on your poem this week....as I saw that you were one who did not comment on others (last week or this week). Hey, each of us likes comments as much as you do...and truly it doesn't take THAT much time.

  11. I like the idea of the river being a connecting source between old and new.
