Remember When?
~~~


Hiking through a woodland glen
as mellow shards
of sunset bend
to capture
bright
in waters clear
reflections
caught
from mountains shear
The silhouette sings twilight's best
enchanting
beauty
north by west
'Twas then my heart
forgot to beat
while visions to my gaze
complete
A gentle sigh
resets its rhythm
I step towards this face from heaven
~
In twilight's eerie haze you stood
amongst the tranquil shades of wood
where timeless paths
bestow the land
you beckon with
extended hand
Surroundings
waver
hardly seen
I spring a trap
laid there
between
then falling deep
to darkest dread
above ...
the trap
once more is spread
~
I Tumble blind through timeless mist
as things unseen
tear cloths to bits
Attesting shrieks
bare
blackest dreams
when fingers grab
they choke the screams
I'm lifted
tossed
to brink of ledge
I scramble
safe
aback from edge
As breath wheezed ...
lungs filled
sanguine air
soon
shadows dance
to flame's despair
~
Perusing cavern round about
entwined with scents
of mash and stout
the shadows fade
as faces bare
their eyes unblinking
strangely stare
Just who they be I have no clue
in cloaks of rag
bereft of shoe
A boiling pot
spilled overflowed
aroma waft
so pulled my nose
~
As grumbles struck beneath my chest
a bowl they passed
I said my blest
The taste was odd
but strangely
good
then laughs
coalesce
beneath their hood
It strikes me now this tale I'm told
now echoed back
from memories cold
Beware
the pit
from beauty set
where mortal foot
trods
with regret
~
I sense
the danger lurking near
too late
I'm thrust
through worlds of cheer
around about
with no control
immersed in love
then stripped of soul
Tears of pleasure
tears of pain
around about
and back again
Conscience whirling
twisting vain
Blackness ...
lifting ...
drenched with rain
~
Hiking through a woodland glen
as mellow shards
of sunset bend
to capture
bright
in waters clear
reflections
caught
from mountains shear
The silhouette sings twilight's best
enchanting
beauty
north by west
'Twas then my heart
forgot to beat
as visions to my haze
complete
A pondered thought
sends senses reeling
it's de ja vu ...
I've got this feeling
~~~

I liked the way that you broke up the lines here Rex. . . the breaks followed the flow of the poem much better than if you had just done it in normal four lines stanzas. . .

great work my friend. . . good to see you back as well. . .

Rex darling heart oh welcome back indeed you have no idea HOW much I miss your exquisite writing. This is stunningly well written the way it flows from beginning to end in such lyrical beauty. That you write exceedingly well everyone acknowledges, when you write and you incorporate the starlight’s shimmer you positively shine with wonder.

This is so very special the light that flows with the liquidity of crystal streams of water, words that caress the soul with beauty, and phrasing and meter that puts masters of the art to shame, this is stunning and I love it utterly utterly utterly. Never do you cease to amaze me with the wonderful skill in which you weave delight


Love and warm stuff
As always
Mushy

Breathe through the heat of our desire
Thy coolness and they balm
Let sense be dumb let flesh retire
Speak through the earthquake wind and fire

Thanks everyone ... you're all such kind and treasured friends ... I write so little anymore that I do try to add a little something special to the things I do write.
And Passions is where I post them first

There is no place finer and no friends better ... to be sure

I'm sorry I missed this one. You never cease to amaze me at how well you can put words together.  This was a most excellent piece of work Rex.

I loved it! It's enchanting, heck, it holds just about every emotion!

Miss ya!
