Cynosure

A cynosure is he for me - Night’s diamond beaming brilliantly; The star I search for in the sky. When seeing it, I have to sigh! My emerald and red ruby - A cynosure is he for me. A pearl washed up from ocean’s floor Now shining on a moonlit shore. A sapphire’s sparkle in the sun; Most beautiful and precious one! A cynosure is he for me Though to him - I’m nothing, sadly. I long to gleam within his sight. If I but had his dazzling light, A cynosure for him I’d be! A cynosure is he for me. Written June 25, 2016 for the Cynosure Poetry Contest of Nayda Ivette Negron

Andrea, wonderful poem, good luck in the contest. :) the other poem you read was, "Ain't An Ornery Yahoo - Colloquialisms form " with repeated verse almost the same but changed a few words. She has disowned the boys and sent their baby pictures she had of them back to them beautiful antique framed. That is ok I inherited a photo I always wanted of my hubby.

ah, the old "unrequited love" saga. perhaps he is a cynosure in his own mind and therefore does not see the cynosure that is you..

Nice poem - I had to look up the definition of cynosure to understand it! Peace & Love Matthew Anish
