As She Found A Way To Dearest Life Meet

“Youth has no age.” – Pablo Picasso As She Found A Way To Dearest Life Meet As she woke, Light streams down Dawn then spoke, Love your gown Rise to day, its glory sweet Find a way, to dear life meet. As she rose, morn gave call Her bare toes, long cold hall So alive, Love asking more Born to thrive, sumptuous score. As her heart, beat in time Day's start, her life sublime Never late, Light's softest gleam True her Fate, passion her dream. As she sang, soul did rise Music rang, no surprise Red sun came, its glow so sweet Love no game, its truth she greets. As she knew, eyes were bright Her Love grew, hours of night When sleep came, Love its gifts gave Sought no fame, his Love did save. As she woke, Light streams down Dawn then spoke, Love your gown Rise to day, its glory sweet Find a way, to dear life meet. Robert J. Lindley, 4-11-2020 Rhyme, ( Basking Within The Light Of Truth And Love ) Syllables Per Line: 6 6 7 7 0 6 6 7 7 0 6 6 7 7 0 6 6 7 7 0 6 6 7 7 0 6 6 7 7 Total # Syllables:156 Total # Words::: 144 Note- First stanza of this poem came to me in a dream last night. I woke 1:42 am, got up and jotted it down, then rose this morn at 5:30 am to start to compose the rest of it. I recall writing poems in the 6677 syllable form back in 1972. Maybe a dozen or more poems. Those poems were stolen and burned in 1975. So this is a rebirth of a youthful foray into creating a new form to play in..... And yes, the "she" in the poem was a real person that I once knew and once so truly and deeply loved... Hope you may enjoy reading this new piece..

Your dream angel muse inspires you so beautifully, Robert. Your poem is wonderful in its rhythm and lovely double rhyme scheme, and gorgeous in its tender emotion and imagery. Your talent shines in this gem of beauty, light and love. Warmest wishes always, my wonderful friend.. ~Susan

Thank you my friend. Always delighted to find that you have visited my page. I pray you and yours are fairing well and this current darkness in the world lays not its ill fated and crushing hands on you and yours. Sometimes my dreams gift me inspiration to later create verse that shows that Life, Love and Light are three great blessings here on earth. God bless...

Thank you my friend. Very oft I wish for a few months out of each year of not having my sleep disturbed. And that far more often during daylight hours the inspirations would come. A poet must accept what gifts may come, so my sleep loss is a small price to pay.. God bless.....

Thank you my friend. But for me the waking is oft irritating. I would much rather sleep deep and through to morn- wake then to be inspired. Alas, my muse seems to delight in disturbing my sleep! Yet when she leaves for a week I beg her to return.. God bless...
