+ Fav Poet


The hands of twilight amble through glazed clouds
Soothing my emptiness, a  heart’s debris, 
Although one longtime wish rattles aloud
Warm is the breeze that flutes in symphony. 

Soothing my emptiness, a  heart’s debris, 
Ripples of time explore true north’s hourglass
Warm is the breeze that flutes in symphony;
As life seeks a reaping from time’s compass

Ripples of time explore true north’s hourglass
When in a gush, drizzles of kismet pour,
As life seeks a reaping from time’s compass
Oh, pennies from heaven open sky’s door!

When in a gush, drizzles of kismet pour
Drenching the thirst of love’s rebirth, joy flares;
Oh, pennies from heaven open sky’s door,
I taste once more a blooming warmth so rare.

Drenching the thirst of love’s rebirth, joy flares;
Although one crumpled wish rattles aloud;
I taste once more a blooming warmth so rare.
The hands of twilight, wander through glazed clouds

.           ……..              ..

* Oxford English Dictionary:’e. pennies from heaven:
unexpected benefits; also (in sing.): a windfall, 
a godsend (rare).

*A song, Pennies from Heaven, was composed 
in 1936---‘ don't you know each cloud contains
pennies from heaven’…

    Fantastic in every way. Sorry for taking soooo very long to get here. Stunning stuff. Though I loved all the lines, my favourite was Warm is the breeze that flutes in symphony...hugs to you... hope your allergies are still doing better. I just bought my detox kit (again) and I'm hoping to cleanse in two weeks. I'm crumbling right now... need to regear, recharge. xoxo Cyndi
