Oh… If I Could – A Poem

Photo by ROMAN ODINTSOV on Pexels.com

I wrote a poem while traveling across the states. I’m in Arizona now and once I can figure out how to post these photos I will update on my travels.

Right now I’m in the White Mountains. It’s interesting because my family is from this area. I sense… something. Its this strange and wonderful feeling of being closer to a soul I had lost many years ago.

Please enjoy my small bit of poetry. It is part of my Intermission Poetry Collection. I plan on definitely publishing this poetry book by the end of the year. It will end with poetry I write in the mountains.

At the end of this post I’ll place a song that always makes me feel a cry is about to start, but waits at the top of my throat. It waits because I slowly smile, thinking that life goes on in a very different way than what we plan.

Here’s the poem:

Oh, If I Could…

Oh, if I could tell of wonderous tales

That would change an entire world

To see the oddest and strangest things around

That spy from behind the wall or tree

Oh, if I could share the visions

Of life past and present and to be

Or, perhaps not to be

Because when I see the wonderous worlds

Of tales to be told

They fade so quickly

Back into the walls and the trees

And the leaves and the ground

They run back to the past

They stand in the maw

And they never come back in the future

Because they are never again called

Oh, if I could tell of wonderous things

Oh, if I could tell you exactly what I see

You’d think me daft

You’d think me crazy

But I tell you that when they are here

They speak

And what they say can be heard loudly

To the grounds that quake

To the sky that transparently shimmers

To the seas of old and new foam built

Turbulent then calmed, heights or down low

Oh, if you could see the wonders, I see

You’d be just like me

Half daft and truly crazy


And that was the poem. Please like and follow. Let me know your thoughts.

I am finally seeing my son smile and that makes this trip worth everything.

Here’s a sweet song by Chima:

Please enjoy the rest of your day and week. I hope you all find what you seek and search for in this life.

Love you Gracie! 🙂 ❤
