                  Forever
                 (for her)

Softly through these Southern Pines
the first Spring moon arrives without
     pretense.
Here beside this deep lake of dreams,
painted in gently rippling moonlight,
my mind and heart are free of all
    worldly shadows.
To what may I compare this  life?
It is as the trackless, vanishing wake
of a tiny boat floating empty and
Time-abeyant or the ever rolling
     clouds;
yet a lovely dream of Spring and
you comes always like a mist that
is not a mist and remains forever.

This poem is full of wonderment and love. To look forward to the soon-to-come springtime is to fill your heart, and your readers hearts with optimism. Today I was just thinking about such a thing also, but in a different sort of way. Your poetry touched me, Bruce.

thank you very much, JP !

Sadly ... it has absolutely no (positive) effect on the actual person it is written to, for, and about ...
