Your Love Redeemed My Faith In Hope



Across the dance floor, your soft sashaying gown flew with its bright waving gleams of silver dust and blue; within that blessed gaze, lonesome heart jumped a beat seeing those golden slippers on your dainty feet, feeling love's welcomed arrows shot by Cupid's bow knowing that most treasured gift would forever grow! That cool June night we walked under golden moon's beams with your heart and soul gifting love that so redeems; this man that had lost heart and walked a blind path death long ago condemned this soul to darkest wrath, torn asunder joy in life that had been a gift chained this spirit upon a black-ship set adrift! Loss of my beloved I once lived blind despair wading through this evil world's black pits without care; her sweet love reminding me of Hope that was lost, found anew when your destined path with mine was crossed. I saw the world with open eyes but could not see Faith, till sight was laid upon fair beauty of thee... Your rosy warmth danced with grace thawing my cold heart, seduced by rousing rhythm never would we part. My heart began to waltz and pallid pulse did race as I saw charmed moonlight caress your angel’s face, I longed forevermore to tilt your chin and kiss your promising sunrise lips of heavenly bliss. That early summer’s eve I took a leap of faith willing to let go of my haunting lost love wraith, I found with you the heart to fall in love once more and glissade you in my arms ‘cross life’s ballroom floor. Alone in love’s spotlight of golden moon beam’s glow you have my whole attention for you stole the show. Robert Lindley and Susan Ashley (a collaboration) June 27, 2018 ___________________________________ My poet’s note: Yet again, it was my tremendous honor and privilege to collaborate with with you, Robert. There is an abundance of beautiful poetry overflowing the banks of your heart and soul, my talented friend, and I wade in the lovely flow of your poetic words.. Thank you for allowing me the pleasure of being your writing partner and for generously sharing with me in these wondrous poems of love, romance and hope; always hope - the common golden thread that runs victoriously through the weave of our writes.. With appreciation, thank you for another exquisite poetic and artistic experience, my dear friend. Robert's poet's note: Yet again my dear friend I must thank you for your friendship, tremendous talent and collaborating with me to produce this wonderful poem. As both Love and Hope are two of the greatest of treasures that mankind has. This poem symbolizes the gifts that are given from both.... As always it is a true joy to compose with you and let our combines poetic voices be read.. I hope this poem touches the heart and soul of many that may have lost hope in life, love and the blessings that the future holds for them.

You and Robert have danced yet another dance for the ages, spinning your reader around, twirling him/her this way and that, promenading him/her along a walkway of moonbeams, crystal, amethyst, and stars. May I attend your ballroom dancing classes, Madame?! And I insist on private lessons, Susan. Money is no object, by the way; I will pay you in precious gems, like Gregory R. Barden's most magnificent poems. How's that sound?! Email me at gwducksouphorsefeathers@gmail.com TYSM! :) :)

Susan/Robert, in musical compositions your wonderful style of collaborative poetry would be called "Organum", where two voices travel the same road, together in the same rhythm & moving within the same harmonious intervals. Enjoyed...george

A wonderful write that does get "a whole attention for you stole" an ardent heart! My heart and soul do " jump for your rhyming words"! A masterpiece! A work of outshining art! Just being in such a celestial charming state of Love actually redeems for "the lost heart", "the darkest wrath", "the blind despair".. what remains is that scent of sweetness, the beauty of love once lived and "the faith and hope" to have "the heart to fall in love once more" ..
