Leaves have fallen around us throughout these many years
Mist has clouded our eyes with vapors of vast confusion...
No one told us then, how storms might come, how skies would gather tears
Or how the sun would often hide, and seem to disappear
Perhaps those years, might have done such harm, to have shattered our illusions
Instead, we lean into each other's arms, and will stay until conclusion...

This chain of couplets was also composed for a wall post in our science rm/lab for the kids to easily memorize or familiarize with some of the world’s famous scientists and philosophers in history. I also wish to thank my dearest friend, Andrea who encouraged me to write an ABC poem like this. Huh! It made me sweat a bit! ;))
Contest: Z is for Zaria: An ABC Couplet
Sponsor; Poet Cyndi Macmillan
Although I lived before
Bliss was measured day by day.
Cheerful moments dulled in empty rooms
Devoid of a kindred spirit
Each day started the same, Free from all but me,
Graced by diminished
Hopes of ever finding "You".
Inside I cried,
Just me, alone.
Languished in shadows,
Mesmerizing lonely glows
Never meant to burn again,
Only to wait, only to wait.
Perhaps love will never come again
Quelled by fear of pain,
Reminded of fickle
Tempting liars lost like me,
Until one day she walked in -
Veronique, more beautiful than her name,
With a heart that sang, and with
X's and O's that I could hold.
Your breath was that soft
Zephyr that once more sparked a flame.
Written May 31, 2013
...and bow Cupid directs
ensuring fate guaranting hope
Idyllic joint knocking late
my nocturnal oddity
Persistence quick revives
skeptic thoughts, unable vestiges
within xeric yearlong zone
I'd like to come to you
But, our streets are red
And I do not have
But my white dress
My insolent heart
It dives into your words
Feels your presence,
Makes love to you
My insolent heart
Knows the truth
you are unreachable.
it ventures around old memories,
My insolent heart
Takes me away from sanity
Gives me a false hope.
Makes me irrational
My insolent heart
Knows no boundaries
It immigrates to a forbidden land where
love breaks the barrier.
I wonder why my heart is insolent. .
YOUR BLUE EYES
Your blue eyes
Your blue eyes
Love arrived in Autumn like a Spring breeze,
Out of its time and out of its season,
Its dancing spirits left me ill at ease,
And the dark shadows, taunted my reason.
The green leaves that were my days before you,
Have drifted and faded and are no more.
The naive moments of white clouds on blue,
Have become remains on the forest floor.
The light and gentle glory was divine.
There was even a glimpse of forever,
But that which I was lent is never mine,
We only borrowed the time together.
I have heard the loveliness in a song,
And tasted the exquisite fruits and fare,
But the prize that is stolen feels wrong,
And the promise of joy becomes despair.
Love lets us believe in eternity,
Like a white bird flying across the sky,
Forever is until you discard me,
Chasing another golden butterfly.
By Dane Smith-Johnsen
