Music mine
swirls me
in my yesterday
and tomorrow now
lies mere a memory

...you are the
ghosted past...

lucid days
an ever-time
of lived caress
a twirl
of shaking shadows
from clouds long passed

cold sunlit warmth
field-caught in
harvest gold
scents the breath
in you
sweet lover lost

days to come
away far I face
for I whisper-waltz
the paths
of known dance
and sway there safe

my wrinkled feet
whirl not the
dusted floor but
grace a river's flow
and yester-breeze
paints light in
war-time eyes

so bright

...sweet lover lost
turn slow twirl with me...

Oh severn, this is wonderful

In graceful dance
I see you swirl
twirling
spinning
falling
once more
into loves sweet arms

Exquisitely beautiful when you write through tears, my dear. You are certainly good at free verse, I agree...keep writing!

By the way - this just isn't about me! Not only can I not dance at all but I am under 25!!! LOL.

PdV - goodness, what a lovely thing for you to say! I wish I could write structured verse!

Pepper - high praise from you my friend.

Ruth -
Love belongs
to more than dance
it wears the face
of honest twirls
and swirls a merry space
of trusting truth
spinning
falling
there I go
and will walk soon
when the dance
has slowed...
Thanks dear friend

Denise - Simply lovley words

pFF - ever a gracious reply. Thanks

Dream - my friend - good to 'hear' your voice.

SHJ - well, keep coming to netpoets and you'll find your mouth is always full!
LOL - thankyou!

Wow severn what a poem! The vessel indeed -
your talent is a passion that comes straight
from your heart and soul and i absolutely
love the way your words twirl around each
other - although you may think dancing has
been lost here your poem dances - the words
dance, your heart still dances. I especially loved stanza 4 and 5 - "field caught in harvest gold" i mean severn those
words together - this poem touched me as all your poems do.

evoking the wartime nature of love, perhaps?
I keep seeing an image of two lovers dancing on a dusty floor in a circle of light. lovely.

Severn, every time I think you've outdone yourself, you do it again

Truly an exquisite piece of writing.
