Breadcrumbs

I’d love to know…
Where do Bread Crumbs lead you?

My friend Michael left me this simple word last year, and it led me to this poem about my Daddy…and now he reminds me again. So…tell me…

Writing Wings For You

You left me breadcrumbs

to figure out your life

put togethery our sorrows

make sense of your strife

never knew why door was to stay closed

and locked up so tight

you barely arose

and now you’re on the other side

We are left here wondering

filled with mystery

digging for knowledge of you

knowing no history

couldn’t you have stopped a moment to provide

a trail of crumbs on this side

Wish there was a way to lift the veil

It seems I knock and knock,

but to no avail.

Poets inspire each other.  Sometimes it’s a poem…sometimes it’s a phrase…and sometimes it’s a word  like breadcrumbs.  Curiosity gets me to write.   Where do “breadcrumbs” lead you”.   Thanks to Poetry Channel for the inspiration.

  2. I really love this poem. It is very touching and reminds me so much of my mother. Thank you for posting it. I think my “breadcrumbs” come mostly from nature, fond memories and like you, I get inspired by the simplest words from other writers. Again, thank you so much for the beautiful memories.
