This Lovely Vision

by

Michael Auguste

While sketching at the sea one day
Breathtaking beauty, golden tan
Asked to see what I was drawing
And stood with me upon the sand

As if she came from out the sea
From nowhere did she seem to come
My heart was beating like a drum
So seldom can such beauty be

Her name was Libby and we talked
We seemed to find a common bond
Quite near the foam and spray we walked
Her voice like ripples on a pond

Barely was she clothed at all
Her body like you see in dreams
Her eyes are what I really saw
She's still a part of me it seems

Her eyes, sweet dew reflecting light
Such peace conveyed within their gaze
More lovely than the stars of night
I became lost in them, much like a maze

More like a vision, so much like art
Her voice like softly dripping rain
If I closed my eyes would she still be there?
Is this a dream, am I still sane?

Our shadows lengthened as we walked
And as we talked of many things
The sun now changed its shift with night
We spoke of long forgotten dreams

As darkness fell we each held hands
So not to lose each in the night
Her touch like silk again my skin
Her fragrance was so much like sight

A little longer did we stroll
With hand in hand along the shore
She's now embedded in my soul
Oh how we longed for so much more

But part we had to and I miss
This lovely vision now since gone
I never touched her lips to kiss
Though in my heart she lives in song

MichaelA~
Welcome, welcome to this family of Passionate Poets.

This is lovely -
a memory as lovely as this one is
and that stays with you
is worth recalling ~

'She's now embedded in my soul'

Wonderful !

this is a very lovely verse and memory
wonderful imagery and touching emotions
very nice writing
welcome to Passions Michael.
so nice to meet you and read
you work
take care

There are places inside our souls -
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts -
that need to be loved this much.

Michael, I'm glad to see you posting here, my friend. Take the words in these responses to heart, and allow yourself to share. I love this one, naturally.

Hello Michael..
I wasn't a Passion's member when you arrived here.
But, I have read every word you have written since I joined.
What a wonderfully talented man you are..
and such a caring soul.
~Soft smiles & hugs, Nancy~


~I've loved you forever, in lifetimes before~

Wow...this has been one of my favorites for a LONG time!  I am glad I found it tonight!  Looking for more of his work, but only see one other poem.  I am missing him and thought I would find more of his work here.  Can anyone help me?

Thanks...Becka
