Lost

if I stepped out
into space would
you hold tightly to the
tether thats holds me
to my earth,
my blue planet
would you reign me in
if I grew weary of
exploring, seeking
you – the air
I breath
the sun that
wakes me
the moon that
kisses me at night
if I stepped boldly
into worlds unknown
would you follow
trailing behind
guiding me home again
if I stepped lightly
into space
would you be
my tether
or start the
countdown
letting me
float
a-
way

the challenge today in the Garden is to write an new poem based on one of
David Bowie’s songs – I keep humming the melancholy Space Oddity

I’ll be posting at dVerse Open Link too

  1. Such a wonderful piece, Candy. I also used the idea of the tenuous tether, but I prefer the question you ask:

    if I stepped lightly
    into space
    would you be
    my tether

  2. Always nicer to have a “someone” to be your tether and have the feeling of security from floating away. Love your ending and how the words themselves feel like they’re floating a-way.
