Rhyme, ( Looking Back, Ages Ago)

Poet's Note- Dedicated to my great friend and writing partner, Susan Ashley. 

Inspired by and composed after my reading of Susan Ashley's superbly crafted new poem titled, The Glory Of The Eastern Edge. Thank you dear friend for  seeding this burst of early morn writing. 
This revisiting of the romantic imaginations of my youth-  reminds me now of the immense love and great blessings of my beloved wife Riza and the most cherished blessing of our beloved son Justin.
What once was lost, much later has been found..

In Such Intense Flames, An Eternity May Be Born

Hold your dreams, bind them with rainbow beams
tumble sweetly and let heart's passion arise
sow the seeds that love gives passion's great might
that Life and Love both gift oft in joyful surprise.

With that deep ardor born from Love's treasure chest.
Sing soul's worth and honor thy lover's greatest request.

Embrace those blessings that truest romance bestows
caress them with care and taste their honey sweet
let spring forth, memories that forever shall live
for gems of purest love, never suffer indignant defeat.

With that deep ardor born from Love's treasure chest.
Sing soul's worth and honor thy lover's greatest request.

Chase your heart's desire, revel in its glorious touch
kindle such heat, stoke fantasy and its hottest of fires
for in such intense flames, an eternity may be born
even after glow of passion's saddest of funeral pyres.

With that deep ardor born from Love's treasure chest.
Sing soul's worth and honor thy lover's greatest request.

I agree with you! "Love and light must go hand in hand..." For what is life, if the ability to love another human being is lost. I admire so much your faithful love for your wife, Riza, and son, Justin! Heartwarming and thoughtful poem. A fav.

Thank you my very kind friend. If one is so very blessed as to have found such a wonderful and kind friend, they also find deep inspiration in that gift and in this case in that friend's recent poem posted here. We that appreciate such poetic beauty and craftsmanship when shown us, may wish to acknowledge it in verse ourselves.

Thank you my dear friend. I have found our friend Susan to be a wonderfully kind, generous and extremely talented friend. Our poetry fellowship and writing partnership is a great blessing to me. Her poem reminded me of my great blessings, my beloved family and what I am grateful for now. Such inspired this piece and I hope my dear friend thinks it a worthy dedication.
