Upon the bluffs tinged in green
I gaze over the ocean's light
Memories fly in drops of gold
O'er a moonless night.

Outstretched limbs reach above
To capture feathered clouds
I fly to caress my destiny
But land on a steeled shroud.

Whispered words dance around
And trace my tearstained face
The kiss of you does beckon me
To break free of this place.

Eternity softens with your touch
And grace wraps in white
I sense the flutter of your soul
And soon you are in sight.

An angel clad in darkened light
Now faithful by my side
We stand beneath the moonless sky
And in the ocean's light confide.



 *Krista Knutson*

Oh, Krista~
Reminds me of a lighthouse beacon ...
calling those to her light.

Lovely, lovely.

Very picturesque Krista ... I could "feel" this one, wonderfully written!

Best wishes,

Krissa!

Wow!  Yay for Krista!  That was another beautiful poem.     I love the way you always seem to encorporate the night.  It gives it a mystical effect to it!  

Nicely done!

Ohhh... Now I really love this... You add in the night and you have me hooked.  Loved phrase like "steeled shroud" and "An angel clad in darkened light."  The latter brings a sharp picture to my mind and I like it much... Excellent poem Krista!  So many poems of yours have been centered around love lately.. hmmm...?

walt- thank ya much!

Marge- I do believe that's what I'm trying to do...call people to my light..the question is, is my light bright enough to call people to?

Dark angel- Thank you!

Kit- I'm glad you could feel it. If I can make one person feel how I felt when I wrote it, then I've done my job.  

Cassers- Like you, I love the night..I'm glad you can enjoy how I try to put it into my poetry.  

Dusk- somehow I thought you'd like those lines.  And all my poems about love lately, eh?  Part wishing, part hoping, part dreaming, part believing...but the question is, are they inspired by someone in real life, or just my dreams?  I'll leave that up to you to decide.   (oh how I love to make you ponder!  hehe)
