Under different skies I write
Staring at the reverse of stars
Wondering why they burn so bright
These shadows of God's avatars

By celestial beauties bright
My distant love I'm sure it true
That should you gaze the lights each night
A reflection they'll cast of you

And by that glow I'll find my home
To stand lovingly by my guide
Where we'll share one nocturnal dome
Gazing Heaven's lights side by side

So look upon them now my love
That I may know your shining grace
Though different skies lie above
Let it be you who's in this place

Wow! Scott, this is gorgeous and so romantic.  Very well done.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Mr. Scott, you have such a romantic soul. Thankyou for sharing it with us from time to time. I do miss your comedic side though.

I really enjoyed this and admire your style here...the phrasing is superb, the language implies ageless grace, the theme, quite romantic. Very well written.

Sir Andrew, you surprise me. I find this quite different from your other works and still an ideal level of quality. Very well done, sir.

This beautiful rhyme flows with romantic freedom that is seldom seen in a man...You are truly a romantic soul....I envy the lass who has stolen your heart to make you see her in the stars above - it takes my breath away to read your words for her...thank you for sharing your gift.

Martie... WOW! Right back at cha. And Thanks!

Marilyn... I am indeed a helpless romantic, but do not worry... my warped sense of humor is still hangin' around. Thanks as well.

Lady D... A   to you and yours.

Meadowmuse... you are most generous and I thank you for your kindness of words.

RobertB... Thank you my good man. I say the same for you and yours.

Sir Balladeer... Nice to have surprised one such as you. Interesting you should feel this to be a departure from my previous works for I felt somewhat the same as this piece was written from a purly fictional point of view... A distant lover who has left his heart behind and hopes to soon find his way back.

Lady Fatale... you make me blush m'lady. Thank you for you kindness.

Kevin... to be placed in one's scrap book is an honor. Many thanks.

Again, thanks to one and all for stopping by and leaving your marks.

Sighhhh, beautifully romantic.

Maree

I may know the word but not say it
I may know the truth but not face it
I may hear a sound a whisper sacred and profound
but turn my head indifferent.
