If you’re a writer, maybe you’ve occasionally written stories, or poems, or books with hidden messages. If so, why?
Did you want to see if anyone could mine your lyrical ore and find those nuggets? Or did you want to truly say something so you wouldn’t forget, but you only wanted to remind yourself? Or did you have some hidden reason for your hidden messages?
Today, I’m gonna share a poem I wrote that has hidden messages. And guess what…I remember that I did that, but I can’t remember all the messages or the reasons why. Has that ever happened to you? But I actually like that I can’t remember because it means I’ve moved on. I’ve allowed those thoughts and feelings to have their place, and now they have their place in the past…where they should be.
So…if you think you can come up with any hidden messages in this poem…and if you can come up with any reasons for them…share your thoughts with me. Here’s a quirky poem called…
For The Love Of Remandee
On a cold and windless morning
With a magical, icy mist…
There flies a raven across a ravine.
The tips of its wings are kissed by the dawning sunlight.
It carries a message to the chateau of Cheron.
The message reads…
There lies a man
In an auburn casket
Whose heart has been stilled by the cold.
His life had its shortcomings…
He wasn’t old.
Ferry him awhile lest, by chance,
He lives again.
Be kind to the poor soul.
He died bleak and penniless.
Death stole his wealthy future.
He was to be a writer
Writing stories for the world,
But it seems apathy was a spear
Aimed at his heart and hurled.
Therefore he died of hunger to be seen.
Pity poor Remandee.
So fly splendid raven,
And end your long journey.
Give Cheron the message
For the love of Remandee.
