Never Forgotten

Breathe in deep the sheltered sea
Whose mist holds mystic memory
The stars are falling one by one
Into the rays cast by the sun

To settle now with mornings dew
A memory lost that never grew
Hold them gently within your heart
Remembering love does not depart

Breathe in deep the sunrise hue
Another fine day to start anew
Step by step in forward motion
Memories kept with deep devotion

    hey, thanks for bringing my attention to that. I had decided to make tomcat as one word instead of two TOm cat, and in doing so, I messed up that line count (forgetting all about having to keep nine words per line). I have not even entered it in the contest yet! soon! time for me to hurry off here. Luv, Andrea

    We pack our bags and hit the road. End up a prince, maybe a toad. But when a friend shows you the way. You'll always want to stop and stay. I like where we are right now Debra. :)'s

    Hey, I stopped in here because of your blog, and I am so glad I did! This is wonderful, fluid and classic. I loved all the elements which you've melded together. There is such a tender mix of pain and hope in this one. And I loved the alliteration... just good stuff. I am truly sorry I don't drop by more often, and I will try to do so... I am a selfish poet who loves to write and when I finally get my daughter asleep, I write write write... Hugs Cyndi PS my fave line is the second...hmmm...brb

    This is very nice, when someone can inspire us to write something. Inaspirations can come from anything, or anyone. Thanks for sharing and reading my poem. God bless. Lucilla

    robert is so great at doing rhyming comments, isn't he? And just look what he inspired here in YOU!! That's what the Soup community is all about. I think you are the one whose blog I read today, right? I just don't understand how so many poets can click on a poem and not even make one little comment. I think you must be "old school" like me. I fear that we are a dying breed!!!

    Robert needs to take more of his comments and continue them out to form his own poems !! He is a very talented writer !! Thank you for dropping by and yes, I guess I am old school...do unto others as you'd have them do unto you. I hope we never become a dying breed my friend !!
