Swinging on a star


of all love spoken

  his words to me said it best

    for "eternity"

      love you more then there are stars

        a timeless and countless love...



By: Sharon Ruebel
Form: Tanka

For Linda-Marie's "Swinging on a Star Contest"

night time's starlight moon

night time’s starlight moon
curdles the whey of longing
clouds mask heart’s desire
trembling arms reach out to you
train whistles haunt the captives

Missing Rib

Should we be amazed,
Denise Williams song "Silly"
Rotates in my head,
A song she forgot about
In her ear it resonates

I love you Mom




Mom is still with me

   her body and soul are here

       sadly her eyes stare

           she has outlived destiny

                only memories remain...

Our National Strength

The brave and the free,
Lain to rest for liberty.
Honor forgotten.
Souls sacrificed, protecting.
Sovereignty wrought with valor.

You will make it through unscathed
Here I stand to keep you strong

Time Stand Still Please

.
Under  the canopy of trees
               Just   my love and me
Gently he holds my hand
               Draws me close to caress
Tenderly...Time stand still please

Reflection

loneliness
borne on night breeze --
visions of you
the feel of your touch
now yesterday’s rose

love in spring
brought gifts in fall --
such happiness
clutching love tightly
I greet the new dawn

Searching



From the window seat 
my eyes search the surf and sea
a shadow glistens 
across the sand where you were
as the sun sets my heart falls

Each day spent watching
natures ebb and flow returns
leaving me behind
the waves echo your message
patiently i wait...
