Searching for You

As I made my way through the shadowy forest of doubt,
I had the most unusual dreamlike thoughts.
I stared trancelike when a herd of unicorns approached,
led by a surreal Mad Hatter seeking Alice.
In the hazy early morning light on a trail we’d traveled often,
I paused to blink, knowing the visions were ethereal.
Unicorns?  Please, this herd looked like something from a fairytale,
and I wondered if they could be anything but imaginary.
Then a familiar voice I heard.  It was yours, my love.
You reminded me to enjoy the moment, not to think so hard.
Real or unreal, it was a vision brewed by an active imagination,
one that will not rest until I find my way back to you.

I was so sad to learn of your demise Carolyn. I write this as if you can read it, your comments on my work over the years were so heartwarming and encouraging. I am saddened by your departure but also gladdened to have been privileged to have known and interacted with you. You made this world a more wonderful place to be while you were here in it. RIP dear Carolyn :)

Dear Carolyn, I am just now enjoying your tremendous talent and rich poetic legacy. Just like your recent acrostic poem Sunflowers, you have "left a lasting impression". May you rest in peace and know that you were well loved and appreciated. Thank you, Nancy Kaufman

Good night, Caro Go forth to the Sea, Sis In fulfillment of thy request To flow with divers, seagulls, your Sea dreams Envy shall sailors see, Sis, You and this dancing sea, Sis, Your poems, now in war of man and flowing Sea In joy of your arrival with its waves Secrets of the past now shared with mermaids But this Soup now sour, your absence In envy of Sea that took your last essence When fiends you have none to share our Soup This PoetrySoup, poets in pains Of your melody, the missing lines O, Carolyn, why hath thou chose new friends of the water world?! Go forth to the Sea, Sis Good night, Caro, dive safely, your water world

So hard to deal with loss. A great one missing from our ranks. Time hangs heavy, as muses grieve. Wherever you are, may it be bright and soothing. For now I'll have to think of that and let it brighten my world, which suddenly grew dim today, as you are no longer her to light it with your grace.

Rest In Peace Carolyn! We will miss you and your poems will live on.

Carolyn Devonshire may God bless her soul and bestow upon her His Grace and mercy. May she rest in peace. A beautiful soul so much loved and venerated.. So much a pity I was not honoured by her acquaintance.. She would be cherished and remembered by those who loved and valued her..

Rest in Peace dear Carolyn... You will forever live in your loved ones' heart... and your poetry will LIVE FOREVER... ~ Ani
