How translucent is the tear?
A rainbow's echo--prismed fears,
magnified reflections all-
casting paint on charcoal wall.

Why sadness to make beauty sing?
Why madness in these thoughts of sting?
Why a memory unfold,
in one night, I grow wrinkles, old?

What there is left of me, inept,
secures the tear that's left unwept.
A heaving of the soul's beguine,
I cannot start. I will not cease.

Storms are born of woman's woe...
an avalanche of memory's snow,
and every mile I've yet to go
is but the longing of my feet.

" Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."
T.S. Eliot

Wow don't you ever sleep...
I cannot start. I will not cease. (i like this line)

Sounds like you have been talking to me...

Every tear should be counted and look'd at.

Michael...thanks again, you really are one gracious poet, yanno?

bernie? Um, it does occur to me, that if you are noticing MY insomnia, then you are not sleeping much yourself! Thanks for reading!

Just a Woman? Is there something else I can call you? J.a.W. reminds me of sharks and somehow I don't think that suits you--
thanks for reading---and, love your signature quote!

PK---laughing here, yes, adventurous is a very diplomatic way of putting that! Thank you!

Oh Sharon! People are gonna start to talk! Thank you, my friend!

Kath, don't worry, I just oiled my whip last night! thanks for reading!

and thanks to all!

How translucent is the tear?
A rainbow's echo--prismed fears,
magnified reflections all-
casting paint on charcoal wall.
========================
Why a memory unfold,
in one night, I grow wrinkles, old?

What there is left of me, inept,
secures the tear that's left unwept.
A heaving of the soul's beguine,
I cannot start. I will not cease.

Storms are born of woman's woe...
an avalanche of memory's snow,
and every mile I've yet to go
is but the longing of my feet.
================================


you get more amazing with every write.....

damn I love the way your mind works.
awesome me twin....truly!!!
forget the vials baby...
send me 50 gallon drums


oh you speak to me in riddles
and you speak to me in rhymes
my body aches to breathe your breath
your words keep me alive

Wonderfully penned lines, serenity! I love this one!

sp

to be with you...
I've tried to hide my passion,
but it's just no use...
piece by piece I lose it
when you walk into the room...

I don't know what I've done above, hmmm can't seem to edit.
I do apologise .

again
excellent writing dear.


I may know the word but not say it
I may know the truth but not face it
I may hear a sound a whisper sacred and profound
but turn my head indifferent.
