of ancient cities
and natural habitats
Experiencing life and
seeing mankind in his habitat
Wandering like clouds
Touching earth every so often
Hungry for more
Then came the day
when you became self-absorbed
and I was lost in your slipstream

Hi Christine. This is a lovely poem! So captivating! xx
Aww thanks Carol anne ☺️💕
You could have been writing about an episode from my life Christine ❤️
We may have spiraled in the same slipstream Ingrid 🥲
So sorrowful when something so good becomes imbalanced. You reminded me of this Jethro Tull song:
“Slipstream,” is such a stunning, stunning addition to the prompt 😀 Beautiful work done, Christine 💝💝
Oooo! “Slipstream” is a wonderful addition to the possibilities for this Quadrille! Love it.
Thanks De ☺️🌺
Nicely done. I enjoyed reading it.
Thanks a lot Bill ☺️
Thank you for introducing slipstream. You used it brilliantly!
Thank you Bev ☺️🌺💕
You nail this (sadly) not-uncommon phenomenon perfectly, CB. I’d bet that most of us have found ourselves in someone else’s backwash….Well done!
Oh for sure Ron! Thanks so much ☺️
You’re really good at conveying sad situations, Christine 🙁 (the sad face is a compliment in this context!)
Thanks David! I’m happy it’s working ☺️😢
Losing a treasured travel companion … oh no!!!! Well done, Christine.
Thank you Helen! ☺️💕
a sad ending when the stream forks and takes couples in different directions
Yes! Thanks Laura ☺️💕
That last line….love what you did there!
Thanks Punam. I love the word slipstream! I’m happy I could use it ☺️💕
It’s a lovely word. My pleasure. 😊
How true Christine that when we become self absorbed, we lose the ability to enjoy the beauty of nature.
