Janet Marie~

give me the sky any day, in all its glory and ever changing moods...you know I know the depth of this....and each butterfly released when letting go....yes, the muse does whisper to the wind, and she replies....


Greeneyes~

Step through the
barrier of my mind,
enter my soul,
feel my desire,
let my eyes guide you
into the shadows
of my heart

Janet, this is one of the most tender poems I've ever read. I think it should be submitted to a magazine or something!! Share it with the world...or enter it into a contest, it's a blue ribbon winner for sure. Your muse, when she's being good, is perfection. Promise her Moon Pies and Dr. Pepper if you have to keep her happy!!

I was on today and decided to see what works you created lately and as usual you didn't disappoint.  

"I wanted to take you to the ocean" he whispered.
"I wanted to be the one to give that to you, to see
your face when you saw it for the first time.
Then, I wanted to see it through your eyes."

I really like that  verse.  It expresses alot of emotions and love.  I really am glad i had the chance to read it.  

There's a peace inside us all
Let it be your friend
It will help you carry on
In the end
There's a peace inside us all
-Creed

Okay..this is what I mean. You want to borrow my muse..but I want to borrow your eyes.

It's like you see..through a kaleidoscope of reasoning. This piece especially feels like a photograph..black and white memories with tinges of azure..Even your blue..is bluer.
You have surpassed mosaic thoughts and pieces..You see the whole sky..and make it tangible to the reader. I want that. I hope this makes sense.

When this is read out loud..it really feels like an album of thoughts of a day a person made whole for you.

Sincerely,
Reg

okay ... so I wasn't here when you posted this and you knew I would come back ONE day to say a little something.  Sometimes a poem doesn't need to be critiqued ... it just needs to be felt and shared, so here ya go!!  Yes, he gave you the sky instead and that is like asking for the moon and getting the galaxy instead for the ocean is encompassed in the sky and the pull of the tide is controlled by the light of night from the heavens.  Now if that doesn't prove his love for you, then someone ain't listening.  Yeah, I know, give me a pickle and I will make "fresh" cucumber sandwich for you, but hey ... that's what I do!!! LIVE WITH IT.  

Now, I found something very interesting in your poem that came about from me searching a "glow-bug's" works for "flacid" .... Look below at your OWN versus to see what I am talking about. ROFL

=======================================

His arms wrapped around her waist as
she leaned back in contentment's rest
*************

Sated by the sun's warm silence,
each knew what the other was thinking
*************
lake's mirrored surface, turning each
*************

GET THE POINT??????  NEED I CONTINUE??:!
ROFLMBO    

Ya know I couldn't pass that up now didn't ya.  BTW ... I could continue in every verse, but I don't think you need them all pointed out to you.  

hugs sweet poetess

Even youre replies are poetry my Aquarian wise one ... thank you for those beautiful words of heart and for the insightful view thru your wise eyes. You know a moth needs that when she gets distracted. Thank you for reminding me of whats important.

Now...as for your acrostic word search...
YEAH I GET THE POINT...ya had waaay too much time on your hands yesterday  LOL
Arent you just too clever for a moth and glowbug LOL I think me and Reggie need the pest control     heh

And Hey...ya missed something in the poem  


would Carry him away.
For nOw, they would share the same breath
and try to sloW time.

"I wanted to Be the one to give that to you, to see
your face when yOu saw it for the first time.
Then, I wanted to see it through  Your eyes."

But tiMe would not allow that wish
to be grAnted. For fall was fading.
Still, what had been shaRed, would not
ever allow winter's regret to set in.
He stood and held out his hand,
lifting her up to meet his waiting Kiss.


thank you MC...youre the best
