         An emblem of love

Found in the Provence of Hoband,
Within a grave of rock and sand.
A pendant jewel of gold and jade,
A face from heaven an artist made.

Sun struck the stone transmits a scene,
The bluest blue, the greenest green.
Of slanted eyes in modest frown.
Beneath a small and golden crown.

A delicate nose lay exposed,
Between soft cheeks of high impose.
A mouth shaped and pursed a petal,
Epitomizing oriental.

Hallowed within a rim of gold,
To be worn by a king of old.
An emblem of his love and power,
A symbol of the loving hour.

And the symbol lives with us today,
But in a much, much different way.

Sy,
To be buried in an earthen grave
Surely was an act of cruel
But the words you write have proved
Your poetry lovelier than the jewel
This is beautiful

Your work always amazes me, Sy.  There's always so much to be read into every little stanza.  This great piece is no exception.  A very enjoyable reading...

Beautiful Sy

 Did Jesus laugh?
I think He did,
'cause He was once
a little kid;
and all of us
were made with joy
both sugar-spice girl
and snake-snail boy!

Sy,

Another excellent piece of work.  Whenever I take a moment to prowl though Passions I find your work on page one.  And with obvious good reason.

This was quite an intricate piece here Sy...I'd love to live inside your mind for one minute...this is a wonderfully woven tale!!

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

A jewel rare,
rarer still ...
our poet Seymour.

*Yeah, so it doesn't rhyme,
but it doesn't have to cause
YOU DO IT SO WELL !

What a guy !  What a guy !
Now that's our Sy ...
causing hearts to sigh !
What a guy !  What a guy !

Sy, you've become quite a master at setting the scene for your reader in the main stanzas - then wrapping your poem up beautifully in your couplet/signature..... Very nice, indeed...
