Photo Challenge #343 – wish you were here

– Oleg Oprisco

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Dream Watch” by Patricia Frolander: call, slip, stand, shell, push, wonder, hands, hawk, heat, dreams, pillow, find

I wonder where I could find you

Wishing you were here even in my dreams

The call of the wind as the sky is blue

Push the limits of what we’ve been through

The heat of your hands or so it seems

I wonder where I could find you

Standing here as the birds flew

The hay as my pillow by all means

The call of the wind as the sky is blue

Hope you didn’t slip from my angle of view

Shell shock and feeling cold from the streams

I wonder where I could find you

You could be in Paris or Timbuktu

And the hawk is being covered by the greens

The call of the wind as the sky is blue

I’m sorry and I wish we didn’t say adieu

Wish you were here and not just daydreams

I wonder where I could find you

The call of the wind as the sky is blue*

A Villanelle is a nineteen-line poem consisting of a very specific rhyming scheme: aba aba aba aba aba abaa.

The first and the third lines in the first stanza are repeated in alternating order throughout the poem, and appear together in the last couplet (last two lines).
