If You Are Lonely

If you are lonely watch the birds 
In their freedom of flight--
Feel the warmth of the sun 
Kiss your cheeks and smile
Visit the shore and listen to 
The waves sing sweet songs
Close your eyes and smell the 
Fragrant flowers of spring
Transport yourself through 
Time’s great abyss 
In memories of streams that 
Flow with a youthful glow. . .
Dive in pools of aqua waters 
Through your mind’s eye
Delight in the breezes playful 
Mood as the trees sway in tune
Listen to the purr of a 
Contented cat in your lap
Write a letter to yourself 
And promise to answer. . . 
Better yet write a poem, 
One that will linger long
In someone’s lonely mind.

    This is like opening up the pages of a writers' diary and staring in silence at the page. It is a solid expression of intermost thoughts, not jumbled or artifical, but grounded and real. Aloha, yourself. So, you are in the land of the new native government and formerly policed by Jack Lord? I have always wanted to visit there-especially Diamondhead and Pearl Harbor. That must be beautiful. Regards, Gerard and thank you, Miss Connie.

I think I better fav this one too!! by the way, the only limerick I can use for a contest is the alien one. I'll just keep posting old limericks until ST. Paddy's day! Luv, Andrea
