The Art of It All
[dedicated to Hoot_Owl_RN]

It is now left to my deft imagination
the words you leave behind ~
I can take each one and all apart
thus making every one of them mine.

It is not like a painting rare
nor like a videotape
I can separate the stanzas fine
and in them find escape.

I can sing the lyrics in my mind
or whisper them soft and low
I could yell them to the universe
or read them as a fiery glow.

I may shiver at their dark intent
or blush from the vision sprung,
perhaps despair is what you meant,
or a recall of my days when young.

But do believe, no matter what you do
I shall cherish the words of you ~
for the Art of you and your Words
leave to my imagination things unheard.


~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ruth, thank you for all you've done, written, said, responded to, and for being such a wonderful friend.

Beautiful dedication for a wonderful person. I know Hoot will love this one. This is the perfect way to honour her for all that she has done for all of us. Thanks Hoot for everything.

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

You picked an easy, easy, way-too-easy subject.  Ruth is all those things you said and more - she is one classy lady.  Even though the subject was easy, you did a fine job of weaving in sentiments about Ruth we all share.  Very nicely done - thank you for sharing our own feelings for this wonderful woman.

O.K.  I'm new here, but if I could put my finger on the purpose of such a place as this...I hope it would be all that you just described.  Sharing your inner thoughts is so personal...and to do it like this, sharing with people who are represented only by their words...well, it's an interesting experience.  I like all the forms of communicating, but I really like the form of communication that I have found here.  I enjoyed your tribute to your friend immensely.  Thank you for sharing.

a wonderful poem and beautiful tribute to Ruth, her poems touched us all.

I can sing the lyrics in my mind
or whisper them soft and low
I could yell them to the universe
or read them as a fiery glow.

I may shiver at their dark intent
or blush from the vision sprung,
perhaps despair is what you meant,
or a recall of my days when young.

But do believe, no matter what you do
I shall cherish the words of you ~
for the Art of you and your Words
leave to my imagination things unheard.
