Paint the sky with petals
of a thousand flowers
trace the star-cast shadows

that I could breathe again
upon     earth:

I fell into darkness
      into your amber midnights
your naked hope    laying beside
me  

Whispers fell upon curves of
   the moon
soft yields in silence

echoing how winter feels
    when snow falls
gentle dancers

touching the world
   of my eyes

{you loved winter, the
     ice storms}


I sometimes failed
     to cross the silent
borders of your thoughts

I, the lover, counting
   anxious hours of loss--
veiled light, bronze   colors
glitter of unnamed stars

moving my   lips skyward
    
     {I am where I need to be}   an
angel between worlds  in endless water
pool of tender blue


             how my dreams arrive:


I fell for hours
    splashing into stars



Deep inside the stillness
........I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration
........To me

"Paint the sky with petals
  with a thousand flowers"...

"I fell for hours
   splashing into stars"....

--just a few of the lines that captivated me.

~Impressive poetic expression.

Lauren - your words are ethereal.  So
delicate,  soft...always as though one were
within a dreamscape...

Nicely done..

Incredibly beautiful Lauren..
Your words ever so gently
caress the page..
dancing down
to splash into the stars
that I never want to end.
You continue to grow
and astound me with
your creative writing ability.
~Hugs sweet poetess~

             OMG........
THIS is the reason for poetry....THIS is the way one is supposed to feel after reading a poem...breathless..starstruck...sated....

You write such amazing images...such poetically PERFECT verses....

"Paint the sky with petals
of a thousand flowers
trace the star-cast shadows

that I could breathe again
upon the earth:

I fell into darkness
      into your amber midnights
your naked hope    laying beside
me  

whispers fell upon curves of
   the moon
soft yield of silence


echoing how winter feels
    when snow falls
gentle dancers

touching the world

the lover, counting
   anxious hours of loss--
veiled light, bronze   colors
glitter of unnamed stars

     {I am where I need to be}   an
angel between worlds  in endless water
pool of tender blue


             how my dreams arrive:


I fell for hours
    splashing into stars



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

I wanted this to go on forever....

There is comfort in simply being who we are~
(like it or lump it I say)
and as always Dear Lauren I take comfort in your gentle words of knowing.

hugging you~

I still need to find the feather that you write with, for I find that no pen of heart or mind could write such breaths.

Thank you.

that I could breathe again
upon     earth:

I fell into darkness
      into your amber midnights

Whispers fell upon curves of
   the moon
soft yields in silence

came by to inhale the pure beauty of you again....I wonder if you even realize just how beautiful this is........

Your writings have the poetic style of a writer of whom I admire very much, the only difference is that yours is the antithesis in subject matter. Enjoyed.

Hello Lauren

Your words were simply stunning and the images portrayed through your words were amazing.  I hope all is well with you.

Take care......Sue
