What can I say that hasn't already been said?

I'm typing this through tear-filled eyes.
This is just such a HUGE piece of your heart,
and you have shared it as only a moth can.  
Every word...perfect, and every one touched me deeply.

I always feel so privileged when I get the chance to
read your poetry, and this?...this is definitely
one of my favorites.  I'll be coming back to this one,
over and over again.

I had to smile too, at Karen, because as I was reading
that first stanza, it honestly reminded me of her...and
then to see that that was the one part that she chose
to quote?  Gotta love it.  

You, my mothy friend, are my hero in poetry.
Love and hugs to you, friend.

"...until you have read the verse on his heart,
you have not truly met the poet.

JM, I could have copied endless lines that jumped out and swept me away here. My, this is a wonderfully powerful and emotive piece. Your phrasing and imagery are excellent Janet Marie.

I absolutely loved these particular lines:


“Saying good-bye was like amputation ...
as I surrendered to all degrees of separation,”


“Driving in circles without destination ...
every single white line counts off
another time that you are on my mind.”



Oh, and my absolute favorite …

“Did you know there is a star in the sky for every time
I have missed you? Yet I only need one to guide me back
to where I fell for you and for the ocean's hues of blue.”


My, oh my oh MY, gator-gal …. your writing continues to expand and grow richer with each piece. Truly, this is exceptional. I loved it.

Best wishes and hugs to you,  
/Kit

I've always known my own limitations, just as I've
known I'm the only one who is capable of creating
those limits,

****************

At least you are smart enough to create those limits. You know me. I create my UNlimitations and pay the price. Now it is my turn to learn from you.  
******************

I'm accepting now that I'm just never going to get used
to this distance nor will I ever get good at good-byes.
Departure goes against my heart's nature;
*****************

Nor will I accept this distance and as for departure .... We in heart and soul shall never depart.  

*****************

Saying good-bye was like amputation ...
as I surrendered to all degrees of separation,
it was in that moment, I knew ... without hesitation ...
I would have traded those tides for more time with you.
****************
Almost as bad as me shark bite huh? and yes, just one more scar once it heals but at least this is one of those that I can brag about. lol

****************
I could go on copying verses and lines but I think for now ( until your poetic response from me goes up) I will just say that in the creation of visible minds, we tend to paint the landscapes with the colors of our moods and our hearts.  Mine has become one of brilliant vibrance since meeting you and the breath of my heart has been revived since first holding you in my arms for the first time.  I love you my friend in endless bounds of stretchings and that is one that we can place in the endless eternity.  

Stayed tuned for the response.

Vicky-girl... it is I who is the privileged one to have such a lovely and generous response to my writing...and privileged to be inspired in this way that I can find the words that express all I feel and also touch others who have felt the same way.
Thank you very much for allowing my words to reach you and for sharing that with me. You honor and humble me with your sweet reply.

Kit... my dear gator girlie... there you are my smile waiting to happen...
your reply will keep me smiling for days..thank you so much sweetie...any growth in my poetry has got to be credited back to this special place...I have learned so much here and found so much inspiration in the talented writers here and bonds formed from the poetry. Thank you me groovy girl

Mark ... your reply reads like poetry...and I sit here trying to find the right words to say thank you for inspiring so much in me and for all that you have opened my eyes and heart to since we met. As you know we're coming up on 3 years now...
thats a whole lotta miles babe.   Thank you MC for all that you are in my life ....and as for that response... take your time..I know youre working a lot of hours right now...and besides...Im not going anywhere... youre stuck with me. I love you too..but then you already know that...
its a moths job to make sure you never forget it, or doubt it.  


All I can feel is this distance between you and me.
I can say I love you but I can't make you believe me
because touching is believing.

A little teaser for ya but not what you will get in the end.  Add to it and spoil me a bit will ya.


I sit here amongst tanned legs of the bay
Listening to the words of children at play
Waves assaulting the sands of endless time
Swaying at the base of another seagull chime

Fragrance of oils clothing bare souls of sun
Sprint on each breeze in milk of coconut run
Traced in walls of departed castles in sand
Resting in the palms of our hearts in hand

I came back to this... for while the entire poem is heart-gripping, I particularly love Departure... if one can "love" watching their heart walk away. *S*

But as I'm settling down to read moth-words that flutter gently on a heart, I get distracted by the responses... and ROFL just doesn't quite fit the mood? LOL

So I'll just tell you to hurry up and lasso that cowboy long enough to finish the duet... and remember I have no patience! LOL

Did you know there is a star in the sky for every time
I have missed you? Yet I only need one to guide me back
to where I fell for you and for the ocean's hues of blue.

came back a different woman than I was before.
And isn't that the way it should be once witnessing
the waves, once walking on a sunrise seduced shore?
No longer content to be kept from the blue, each day is
another chance to be captivated by the colors, to covet the clouds.

And on top of all THAT you missed it 20 Billion times?

Lady, you sure as heck can write when you sit down to do it.  And...it is really worth the wait.

As long as I worked on this one...I should have written a novel..but I have to admit that I am happy with the end result..it was special to me and I wanted it to be just right.
thank you dear one for coming by.

Your title isn't "adjective-noun," and that blows my mind (still allits though).  Love your little math thingie at the end.  Hoo boy... well I didn't reply to this one in a long time and it's because I'm lazy.  Yes, I'm lazy.  Lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy.  Oh well... happy Canada day!  Brian's going to reply to your poem now.

quote:
just as I'm usually my own worst enemy.
I've also always found fascination in life's little ironies.
Along the way I've learned there is a fine line between
temptation and things just meant to be.


When it comes to the fine line between creativity and cliche, you're your own worst enemy.  (couldn't resist!)

OK so I let that ruin the intro for me.  I know, I know, I'm too picky with that sort of thing.  But I really have a hard time tolerating things like that, and it's my fault not yours, so don't let it phase you.

Otherwise the introduction isn't bad as far as introductions go.  It's hard to start a poem but you have a neat method of starting your poems, you kind of reach back a little bit (I've always known) and set out the theme that's going to be discussed in the rest of the poem.  Kind of like how you'd write an essay.  It's nifty.

quote:
Driving to the airport, praying an act of God would
somehow delay my flight, knowing it was going
to take a force of nature to give me the strength
needed to leave both you and the tides behind.


And she comes back to nature.  Going to take a force of nature to give you the strength, hm?  Because departure goes against your heart's nature, and you can't help feeling that "this is wrong," until something nudges you in the direction with "this is what must be?"  Hugs, JM, you precious soul you...

quote:
Saying good-bye was like amputation ...
as I surrendered to all degrees of separation,
it was in that moment, I knew ... without hesitation ...
I would have traded those tides for more time with you.


Regard! Elle rime!

You know I can picture you staring out at the road with this sullen look on your face, covered up by a bit of forced, happy conversation, your eyes on the little white dots rushing past you.  And for some reason it's raining too, but that's my imagination, so forgive me.  "Saying goodbye was like amputation?"  Hmmmm heh... that's kind of nifty actually, I've used that one before too.  I told my ex "I love you like I love my arm."  She didn't think it was so romantic.  But uh, maybe I should have phrased it more like you did.  Oh yeah... but I know how it is to lose a part of yourself.  Never easy.  Especially the moment hanging in suspension where you have to watch the departure take place, powerless to do anything.

quote:
Watching you walk away, my body bruised by the
restraint I inflicted on it resisting running after you.
My heavy heart held me there ...
I missed you before you were ever out of my view.


I like that bruised-from-the-restraint thing.  Very cool... and the last line fits this entire canto just perfectly.  Missing someone isn't always a question of their geographic location.  You can miss the person sitting right next to you, because you're already waiting to see them again, already waiting for all the things you shared to happen again.  Man it's depressing, though.

quote:
How many moonlit midnight drives
must I make before one of these roads
takes me back to your tides of contentment?

How many early morning rides towards
the crimson sunrise will return me to the
rhythm of the wave's resonating reprise?

How many miles must I accumulate
before I can acclimate my spirit in
your blue breezes once again?


The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind.  Ahahaha... but you have to admit you ripped this off just a little bit, hm?

You and that colour blue.  Don't ever get tired of it?  It's fine.  You have a theme, I understand.  

quote:
How many creeks can I walk in, how many lakes can I wade?
How many river banks can I wander searching for another
invitation in the sand, needing constantly to be near
water in a futile attempt to recreate the way I felt
walking sunswept shorelines holding your hand.


Beach imagery, beach imagery, beach imagery... JM, can you take me to the beach someday and point out all the things I'm missing?  I've been there before and never quite taken in what you have.  Can I borrow your eyes?  How about your brain?  Hehe...

Water is nice.  I read at a young age that water is astrologically linked to Scorpio, and I went for that--I loved that zodiac stuff, it was so neat.  Then I went and never learned to swim.  But there's something divine about water, I agree... it reminds you of summer, of the beach, of the vastness of the planet that stretches from shore to shore.  It reminds you how huge and frightening everything really is... excellent choice of symbol, that's one very near and dear to me.

quote:
So now I ride with one eye on the road and one on the moon.


Lazy eye?  Hehe...

quote:
If I drive directly into it will I end up on the other side?
Will it pull my tides to a dusk dusted shore saturated
in September's sultry solstice?


You and your imagination... I always love your "if--will"s, this one is no exception.  It's an example of desparation, isn't it?  Your mind wanders to the extrordinary, extreme and unworldly in hopes of gathering some kind of hope.  This part of the poem shows how genuine your feelings are, that you are capable of such thoughts as this...

quote:
Did you know there is a star in the sky for every time
I have missed you?


Ok, that's a bit lame, but I forgive you.  Just because the rest of this rocks so much.  

quote:
Yet I only need one to guide me back
to where I fell for you and for the ocean's hues of blue.
'Map Questing' the miles, trying to find the scenic
route to return to where I left my heart in the sand.
Watching the weather channel to see if the
sun is shining on your shoulders and shorelines.


Oooh... that last part, I know how that is... I've actually done that before, checked the weather in someone else's part of the world to see if the sun was shining for her, if it was raining, or whatnot... but that you consider this a part of destination is interesting.  Is that a way of reaching the person?  Some method of interaction, just trying to get inside their mind and see and feel what they are feeling?

quote:
Still I ride to where the roads rise, searching for a detour that will
deliver me to your aqua allure. Taken by a relentless urgency to find
my way back to the sea, I fill my days with respites on river banks ...
creek beds and sand bars, sunning on lake shores just to be close to the
influence of water, needing to immerse my spirit the constancy of waves.


I love "aqua allure."  That's one of my favourite parts of the poem.  You and your little habit of finding strange and unusual combinations of words and colours... and that alliteration of yours, I wish I could think one letter at a time like you seem to.  You're coming back to the water again, this time blatantly expressing the importance of the water's symbolism in your life.  How it makes you remember, and you want to remember, so you return to it as much as possible...

quote:
Sleep only serves to keep me from the sunrise and the moon
as it makes its midnight reprise. From dusk to dawn I am driven
by my desire to see every sunset ... to wish upon every star ...
somehow finding solace in the knowing we share this same sky.


That will to live is the most powerful part of this poem, in my opinion.  The desire to see every sunset, wish upon every star (my cliche alarm is turned off, don't worry), driving you... not wanting to waste a drop of your life and your experience.  That taste for beauty is one of your best qualities, JM.  Don't ever change that about yourself, ok?

quote:
I have found ways to tide me over till I can return to the blue ...
but the one view I cant substitute is the blued brilliance of you.


You went and made this a tribute.  Haha... I know it's one long and descriptive tribute to the beauty of one person, which you've done before and do a lot (it doesn't get old, don't worry), the description of something so striking and beautiful that doesn't even come close.  Geez, where are the women like you in Winnipeg?  Where I can't find them, if anywhere...

Bri..there arent any moths in Canada???  

Well groovy guy as always you read me well...
I had to smile at your comments about the intro...you got that poetry eye thing going on about you  LOL

You saw right thru me..I think this poem, more so than any one Ive written...was the hardest one to start...Some of this ones verses were written nearly a year ago...
and to tell ya the truth...that intro..which was one of many..was one of the last verses written and I was still unhappy with it..but decided there comes a point when we spend too much time and that it was time to lay this one to rest..So Im not surprised at all that you found it weak...I just decided to let it lack rather than tweak this thing anymore..LOL
Sorry bout tripping the cliche alarm...but I guess thats just the way of the moth when shes writing her heart...
as always... we seem to agree on fave lines...cliche or not   ...

So tell me...is the blue theme tired now?
played out? hmmmmmm....the poets dilema...
you see Im still feeling it all like it was  yesterday...still feeling the inspire...guess I need to find new ways to say it...or maybe go back and read my poetry...only writing once in a BLUE moon heh   ... I forget what the last ones were about word for word.
Well Im rambling here..the moth is tired..been up since 5 am...so I'll will get to the moth point..and say thank you my dearest bugboyeeeee *L* as always I am grateful that you give me your time and insight...

We cant grow if we dont know.
thanks Bri-babes.
I'll read your poem tomorrow after I get some sleep...I want to be focused and well rested so I dont miss anything.  


Well ... OK ... but you have to wash it first.

Could that line be any cooler, any more powerful?  Your images are brilliant...

JM, it's good to read you again...and here I thought that you weren't posting anymore...go figure.
As always I relate to pieces of your poems, and this write is a testament to your strength as a writer, you just keep getting better and better.

OMG!  This (and not meant to offend anyone) has to be the best thing that I have read in a while.  It seemed to have touched deep in my heart, I loved the entire write but I have to say...that the following line spoke a thousand thoughts for me...

"I came back a different woman than I was before."

Gosh!  That one line was absolutely beautiful and still sits on my heart and mind....

This was absolutely EXQUISITE Janet!!!

This just gets better with every read.

Janet - I have just taken every writing instrument in my home (including makeup - I have used eyeliner before) and tossed them to the wind . . .

This is THE best piece I have seen in a very long time and I am truly in awe of you

This:

Every mile marks another moment that
this distance confines, keeping me from
where I left the best of me behind.


God, yes yes indeed . . .

Amazing

Dee ... yes.. I know...and yes...you know.
miss you round here girlie.

Sue ... thank you seems too little to say for such a wonderful encouraging reply...
you humble me with your lovely compliments..
and I thank you so much...I worked a long time on this one and wanted it to be special...I was honestly unsure of it when I finished...I guess Im just too close to it to be able to look at it objectively...
all these very cool replies helps me to know I acheived what I was going for.

Thanks to ALL who responded so graciously.
and to MC ... my inspiration and light in the distance.

Bingo this -- you are right in everything you said...everything.

I miss so much by not visiting these side forums.....you wrote a piece of me in this one, and better than I could have written it.

Checking Library box....NOW.
