April Poem A Day – Day 21

Writing a ‘Blank Me’ poem today. I recently read an article in the New York Times that coined our collective feelings of blahness (yup I’m making my own word) during the pandemic in a  psychological term called languishing – so fitting! It brought this poem to mind for today’s prompt.

Vanishing Me

I’m lost in
These spaces and places
Myself so many times
I forget why I 
Wandered into a
Winding trails
Empty Streets 
Like fallen leaves drifting 
on a breathless wind 
Even the stars are confused
in an ink dry sky
Clouds skid wayward
Dropping snow in spring
Moose amble down
Main street 
As if they too have
Forgotten their place
