Echoes of My Life

Lorna is a published writer with a particular interest in narrative poetry, which she finds therapeutic.

echoes-of-my-life

The tender echo of my mother’s heart

Touching the very essence of our souls

Harnessing the power of selfless devotion

Flowing with the purity of an eternal love


Within the beating soundtrack of my existence

Would I notice if an echo of calmness escaped

To gently meander beside a never-ending stream

Of undulating ripples creating that inner peace


Fragments of voices stirred by the wind

Rest within the valleys of my consciousness

A constant reminder to protect this fragile world

Securing the echoes of future generations


Offering a sense of peace within the turmoil

Becoming a sanctuary of hope and understanding

Releasing wounded echoes no longer imprisoned

In troubled minds trying to find an open window


Gentle words that flow within poetic lines

Gather momentum with each escaping note

Serenading the fertile valley of imagination

Whispering the faint echoes of my own voice


Interconnecting circles of our differences

Illuminating the many facets of mankind

Millions of heartbeats echoing in hallowed places

A melody of voices uniting as one beautiful soul

A mothers love and advice, lingers in every thought and choice, even as we grow older.

This we pass on to future generations hoping to shield, guide as well as empower a troubled mind.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on March 04, 2020:

I feel the sense of calm security in these words. "The tender echo of my mother....touching the essence" and "offering a sense of peace within the turmoil "

It is so wonderful, this essence given from Mothers.

Thanks for sharing this one.

Beauty is here. I only know what I feel. I feel this. My circles create a reality. Good for them. Perhaps I am not in them.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on March 03, 2020:

This another beautiful poem, Lorna. The mother's heart is something many of us relate to and I also like the interconnecting circles of our differences. That says to me we can be different, yet still be connected. that is a beautiful thought.

Now if only we didn't seek to disrupt the echoes of others, and listened together more often with open ears and caring hearts the world would be as beautiful as this poem!
