One Simple Breeze


A breeze passes the tips of outstretched fingers
Swirling in the midst of life's invisible wand
Offering soft comfort as it mindlessly lingers
Capturing this embrace of our peaceful bond

Gentle is the pull from heaven's quiet retreat
As it settles between a tripod of hopeful gains
Caressing fears that so often come to deplete
The solitude found amongst the gentlest rains

Soothing is this passage of horizon to thought
Silent is the serenity flooding the veins of fears
Whispers of gratitude are found as it is caught
Resting graciously within understanding tears

Moments forgotten in the shadows of yesterday
Dance freely on the floor of this conscious glow
Encasing the power of our love in childish play
Relinquishing the holds we have come to know

Rest now my love ...
                           and allow this peace to dwell


Mark Christopher



I have found in you ... a reflection of me ...
and a path to the peace I have sought.

One simple breeze.....
the gentle peaceful kind,
that brings me to my knees
with a quiet "Thank You"
for thoughts that ease
troubled heart and mind

Mark,

I am not sure you remember this or not, but...You are the one who brought me here to passions. And you STILL, even after all this time, leave me breathless......

Hope all is well.

Mark, there is nothing simple about this. It is beautiful. I will have to check out more of your work, but at the moment there is a storm on the way, I can feel a breeze too. I think I will have to go and enjoy that first.

Summon the courage to step out of your familiar rut and suddenly many of those things which held you back will no longer have the power to do so.

A breeze passes the tips of outstretched fingers
Swirling in the midst of life's invisible wand
==========================================
Gentle is the pull from heaven's quiet retreat
As it settles between a tripod of hopeful gains
Caressing fears that so often come to deplete
The solitude found amongst the gentlest rains

Soothing is this passage of horizon to thought
Silent is the serenity flooding the veins of fears
Whispers of gratitude are found as it is caught
Resting graciously within understanding tears


Moments forgotten in the shadows of yesterday
Dance freely on the floor of this conscious glow
=======================================


Whispering winds share the secrets they hold,
to be heard only by those who will listen into the fold.
Quiet comfort found in an Autumn's breeze ...
winds of change caress in healing appease.

~~~~~~~

(momentary inspire)

Well all my mothy begging pays off when I finally get to read your heartfelt rhymes.
I love the soft whispered undercurrent of contentment and comittment in this one MC.
A tender write of promises kept and anticipation found.
Written with your poetic gifts of cadence, imagery and romantic intend.
Im thinking most any wind you ride on is one that will carry a heart home...
whether youre catching the breeze...or sending it      
me

     



this one was titled...Butterfly on an autumn breeze      

he said ... "dont cry" ...
said "it only hurts forever ... and all we have is time."

JM-Hey, what do you mean by the begging ... you need only ask and I will try to oblige!!!   Don't ya know that by now?  Thanks my dearest friend for all that you do to keep my mind occupied.  You have become sort of a hobby to me ya know.  Mind you, not the hobby I would have seen myself doing 2 years ago, but what the heck ... times change and so do the needs (of non-Aquarians) of others. LOL  Thank you much for your kind words and always pointing the poetic aspects of my poems so that I may grow in my writing.  Huge hugs!!!!

Coco-And I just love the feeling I get when I see your name on one of my posts.  Thank you much my dear friend for all you give and do for so many of us here.

Marina-I don't know about the class but I will sure as heck take the beauty!!!    Oh, is that you???  Well, I guess I better just smile and say thank you much and remind you that I do appreciate your kindness.  

Annie-Well of course I didn't!!! I may be getting older but the mind works quite well still.  I too have missed being here.  Thanks for the double visit.

Marge- Osiyo!!!!!!!!!
Well now my dear friend of nature and fire ... how could it not be a sweet visit when your shadow is ever present?  Thank you bunches and many many hugs.
