PINK ROSES

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Summer’s awakening

Within the garden

Capturing

A young girl’s fancy

Resting upon a bush

So delicate

So fragrant

So lovely

So joyous

She visited you often

Within the garden

Filling her with your sweetness

Your luscious pink hues

Always delighted her

Your petals so soft like fine silk

She visited you often

Until there was no more

In Vienna

She discovered

You again

In the garden

So lovely

So joyous

So fragrant

Filling her being

With love and delight

She visited

Often

As the waltz

Roses from the South

Resounded within the garden

Echoing your charms

And filling her with love

Remembrances

The quintessential

Pink rose

That captured a young girl’s fancy

Has become her symbol

Of pure, sweet love

That is the treasure of you

Within her heart forevermore

DANCING WITHIN THE SHADOWS

On a sultry night

Dancing within the shadows

As the harmonies and melodies

Captured her in delight

Awakening

Memories and happiness

From youth

As she played within

The harmonies and melodies

Dancing within the shadows

On a sultry night

And into twilight

Memories and happiness

From youth

Awakened

As she played

Within the nostalgic moments

On sultry night and into twilight

The harmonies and melodies

Resounded within her

And she began to glow

With her muses

As creativity and wonderment

Began to rise and flow

As she danced

Within the shadows

ELIXIR OF HER SOUL

The elixir

That enshrines

Her in melodies

Harmonies

Captivate

Her soul

She rises

Within

Higher and higher

In ways she

Never imagined

The elixir

That swells

Like waves

Within her

Are the notes

The chords

That have moved her

Since

She was

A child

In stillness

And at play

The elixir

Of her being

Comforts

Inspires

Each and every

Moment

It is her joy

Her escape

Her wonder

And her soul’s

Companion

Since she was

A child at play

And in stillness

DEAR ONE, FORGET ME NOT

Her guitar

Rests silently

Against the sun kissed walls

Waiting

For her fingers touch

Upon its strings

To render

Sweet soothing sounds

Ooh, where did she go

Forgotten

In this lonesome space

Although she is here

Nestled within

These walls

As rays of light

Showcase us

Ooh, where did she go

Forget me not

Dear one

Let your fingers

Gently touch my strings

And together we will

Be

Dear one

Forget me not

Within these sun kissed walls

I wait for you

Within these sun kissed walls

Ooh, dear one

Forget me not

ODE TO S.P.

In the silent stillness

She waited

For the instrument

To play within her

And flood the pages of notebook

With prolific tributes

Although her instrument played

She could not hear

Its sweet sound

That had once overwhelmed her heart

When she began at the age of five

And yielded many joyous returns

Throughout childhood

Then it fell silent

At thirty-three

An epic time for her

The instrument began to play

And this spirited child

Of nature

Began to flood the pages

With prolific tributes

For her love had returned

But it did not last

As the tangled webs of life

Once again

Ensnared her

Although her Instrument played

She could not find her passion

Or her love to sing and dance with the words

As she had done before

Then, something happened

Unbeknownst to her

The soaring tenor

Appeared

And entered her heart

With his instrument of perfection and grace

For he had captivated her in youth

And she began to listen to his songs

Once again

The soaring tenor

Touched her heart with every

Emotionally filled song

Just as he did in her youth

Lights

The wheels in the sky

Faithfully

And open arms

Will forevermore be etched

Upon her soul

The Soaring Tenor

Began to Awaken within her

What had fallen silent

From the webs of life

 

Meditative visions of the soaring tenor

Led her back to the instrument

That she once knew and loved

But could not hear or feel

By re-learning to sing and dance with the words

Prolific tributes from the fountain

Have begun to flow onto the pages of her notebook

Just as they had done before

For this is what the Soaring Tenor gifted to her

Back from the depths of her youth

His tender love-filled ballads

His extraordinary vocals

His lyrical artistry

His emotionally charged songs

Awakened what had always

Been within her; but fell silent

Not Any More!

This is her Ode to S.P.

May her journey back to the instrument

Of her youth begin to sing

Just like before

But with a grander spirit

This is her Ode to the Soaring Tenor

Who inspired and awakened her from afar

For she will walk in silent stillness no more

The flames of love, believing and passion

Have been re-ignited within

This poet’s heart

Many gracious and warm thanks

To you always, S.P.
