Tender Years

Your brown eyes speak 
bright laughter has etched your fair face
Your brown eyes speak
their bright allure is your mystique 
with hands which hold such solemn grace
Oh I still long for your embrace
Your brown eyes speak

We breath in awe
for our journey's just begun now
We breathe in awe
for each distilled memory's raw
each ripe thought rewound, an old vow
hand in hand our beliefs avowed
We breath in awe

New Beginnings
for souls with eyes of brown and gray
New Beginnings
bodiless and ever singing
rise unbound, released, of earth's cliche
a higher calling to convey
New Beginnings

*Form a Rondelet string.
poet: Debbie Guzzi

    Oh, wow, this one is simply wonderful. I LOVE the last three lines, especially "rise unbound, released, of earth's cliche." You have such a way with words!

    Debbie I wish I were better equipped to express my thoughts about this write but I'm not. However the feelings of it make me think of this as righteous and maybe even about the road to it.

    Debbie in your blog you talked about Rondelet, and now you're mentioning Rondelet string, I get the gist but does the latter have a particular no. to adhere to?

    This is a really good string. First time I saw them strung up. I think these are great. Thanks for checking out my humble works. I doubt if I could ever stop being funny! ;)

    Wow, this poem is spectacular, by far one of my favorites I have ever read (and I'm not just saying that). Is it published or what? It's really good, and you are extremely talented... I've read some of your other poems as well. You should visit my site: ! I think this poem could have a really good chance of winning one of our contests! Wish you the best with your poetry and I hope you get published! : )Jacob Cramer

    I like your style Debbie, beautiful poem.

    I love how this "feels" in the rondelet style. Very pretty, Debs. (breath is the noun, I think you mean the verb breathe). thanks for seeing some of my old haiku sets. You can notice how I love personification. Right or wrong, oh well. let me go elsewhere to tell you something.
