Not As Long Lost Friends

by Rdfrdmom2

Free Verse Poetry Contest Contest Winner 

here they come again
obliterating perspective
as quickly as tsunamis
change landscapes
these late night visitors
meandering down my cheeks
as gently as a silent underground stream
barely noticeable
yet cutting swaths through mountains
eroding foundations
creating sinkholes –
water so refreshing to the taste
yet notorious in its ability
to create disaster
here they come again
not as long lost friends
rather as unnamed ghosts
reawakened by who knows what
cutting lines through my soul
eroding my foundation
sinking my confidence
damned weather service
what happened to the warning system

Sometimes when I cannot sleep at night, I find the need to capture my thoughts in writing. A special thanks to simonka for the use of "Tsunami". Happy New Year, everyone. Thanks for reading.
