Sweet silence;
perhaps the better choice;
smooth quiet lull in echoed hall,
of muted yearning voice.
~ ~ ~
Compassion;
the tender way of mine;
I sing to thee a melody -
of love, line after line.
~ ~ ~
Sweet insight;
that draws you near to me;
wisdom to know the time to grow -
our love was meant to be.
~ ~ ~


 The spiritual wind that holds survivors aloft, plants the seeds from which bloom new hope ... R.J.G.

RoseMary~
Across the fir-lined studio ...
your melody wafts to one who hears your song.

'wisdom to know the time to grow -'

A lovely duet you two are !
Love ya'

If the kids would just quit knocking or our door we could maybe visit this place together.

 If I could paint a portrait, of this life in which I've led, and somehow sketch a story, of the visions in my head, I'd start out with a canvas, stretched tightly in a frame, and in the bottom corner, I'd leave room to sign my name. (Michelle A. Bartley)

You all just cleared the clouds away from a dismal day, and let that sun shine down on me again!  Thank you all for seeing some value in this poem, which happens to be very meaningful to me.  I appreciate every one of you, and thank you for taking the time to let me know your thoughts.  I think you are all just great, and I enjoy your poetry as well.
