From Poet's Pen, Love's Infinite Colors May Flow From the poet's pen, love's infinite colors flow Even when, it inks verse of darkness down below And poet's heart, gifts to others, romantic light Be still gasping breath, as Venus dares show her might As depths of love, 'a la Romeo and Juliet There her favored lovers rejoice tete-a-tete. From the poet's heart, ripen fruits, Art purely grows Majestic as the golden treasures Nature sows Ever as, expanding roots, Love's beautiful trees Glide as sensual waves, building hope in swirling seas The singing of love's firstborn, its beauty con Amore Soft vows in passion flung from loving paradise shores. From poet born breath, exhaled in torrents of praise Ink gems left before death, cutting through world's malaise As voice from depths of wilderness and solitude Berating lies, man's usual hateful attitudes Falling back on hope, truth and a rose's beauty sublime Creating art, waging battles against fleeting Time. From the poet's pen, love's infinite colors flow. Even should they be, dark verses born from below? Robert J.

This is one of the perks I like about this site, the inspiration. In this case, The Lady. Glad I stopped by and you and your family remain in my prayers.

Beautifulll lines filled with universal truth of love flows like a brook. Please take care of your health & get well soon. Beside, your medicines please try this small step- it would help you a lot to get well soon. Just sit in an open or covered place {when you are empty stomach} start taking deep breath & exhale your breath with a sound of "Sa" for about 2 to 5 minutes only daily as first step of Musical Yoga Cures without any medicines innovated by me. U will find it relaxing BW..Ravindra

Thank you my friend. I will check out the music you cited after posting this reply. I am now dealing with serious health issues both my own and those of my wife as well. So I have very little time to engage here. Such is life.. God bless...

Beautiful, Lindley. Stunning thoughts delivered articulately through a true romantic's hand. Where is 'Life' if there is no romance. Some of the most sincere romance borne from darkness. I am very honoured that such a highly talented and sophisticated poet as yourself, was inspired by a piece of my novice romance. All stanzas received and understood, third stanza, the most potent. Trust you and yours are well. Love L. x

I was listening to this piece of music the other night, while I was writing a story, unpublished (as of yet). I thought you might like and understand. "Nisi Dominus - Cum Dederit" - Vivaldi (Armand Amar Version). It was on as I was writing. The full lyrics, when translated, quite beautiful.
