~Winds Of Change~

Poetic winds blow ... now sweetly swept away,
carry me to the place in you ... so that I might stay.
Safe passage to your harbors ... sail across your seas,
breathe in all your pleasures ... set my spirit free.

Poetic winds blow ... gentle breezes take my will,
carry me to the place in you ... where time stands still.
Take me so far away ... to discover your beaches of sand,
under your starry skies ... I rise up ... heart in my hand.

Poetic winds blow ... quietly taken into the night,
carry me to the place in you ... warmed by desires light.
Baptize me in your mystical waters ... sun dry me on your shores,
caress me with your winds of change ... allow my heart to soar.

Poetic winds blow ... lift me up ... now Heaven bound,
carry me to the place in you ... where contentment is found.
Fly with me in twilight skies ... painted in hues by the setting sun,
as we fly free towards the rising moon ... two souls become one.

Janet Marie

How could one ever get tired of such beauty? A phenomenal piece of work and it deserves to be seen a lot!

This poem never fails to put a smile on my face and fill me with warmth and joy.The words flow of the screen in gentle whispers and form images that are tender and pure.
Absolutely wonderful, a pleasure as always to read.

Dear Jan ; How can anyone be tired of such incredible beauty?

Summers haunting melody
that awakens
the butterflies,
calling them to join
the dance
in their silent song
of praise to God.

Never can I get tired of reading a good poem

The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

this poem defines you as well
there are so many sides to your work
I know you told me not to do this but
how can I not
I cant wait to read all the other poets
work in here but I had to start with my heart
luv you

my sister is the poet
I am but a shadow
by the light of poetry
I read then dream
