Glitterings

Decisions made, the poem you write, Hold hidden meaning from your sight. Will never soothe a welling tear Or aptly tame a childhood fear. A retrospect of yesterday Won't reassemble for display Or paint a canvased future doubt, As colors dimmed by years fade out. Just as the roads you chose ahead No longer trace the steps you tread. How dull the scattered remnants bought And not the glittered gold you sought. Gene Bourne. 03-31-14 .

Thanks so much, Pandita, for your kind comments. I'm in the process of reading your compositions. You have unique gift of drawing the reader in, from first word to last. I've read some exquisite phrasing. The flow of your poems, creating your motifs and melding them together is excellent. Thanks again for commenting..Your friend...Gene.
