Deluge


A fleeting flood of passion sounds
from lovers' longing lips
displayed against a tarnished moon
a sonnet, soon eclipsed.

A lasting, languid lullaby
a mournful, solemn song
a boundless buoyant joyful cry
a weakened pulse, grown strong.

The honest ache, the merging moan
the tense taut fingertips
We find each other, far from home
as wind and water whips.

Shared silence, it is finally ours
a mirthfully magical hymn
as words cascade from shadowed showers
and bathe our hearts within.


Dear LadyClaire

Elizabeth...it is a bow from myself to you, as well, as I do admire your work so much. Thank you for reading this one.

Christopher...thank you for letting me know you enjoyed this piece. Oh, and if that's  not a word, it certainly should be, shouldn't it?

'Cascading'indeed.
What a buoyant ride your words take
in this poem.  Flowing so gently.
Lovely, Claire ... simply lovely.

With voice of golden nightengale,
She sings her words of love,
Surely not a mortal be,
But goddess from above.

A stirring verse you've penned for me,
symphonic satin sound.
A thank you should I send to thee
but words cannot be found.

Thus I shall merely bow my head
in quiet peaceful pleasure
for poet's praises have I read
and ever shall I treasure.

Thank you, Mike.

Thanks, Walt. I'm not too hard to find. Just look for the woman with her heart on her sleeve. (I'll be the one right beside her rifling through the dog~eared "Emotion to English Translation Dictionary" and scribbling furiously on the inside cover of an ancient copy of "The Guide to Rational Living")
