Dedicated to my poetic friend...Connie

Blog Posted:9/18/2022 9:07:00 AM

Beyond fair reason, we shall think of you

on sunset beaches where beauty's unsealed

to see our time so fleeting fade to blue

with our distant thoughts, we quietly yield

our memories will tremble ever soft

with warm visions of a poet, we'll miss

whisked to poetic realms and stars aloft

the tender afterglow we reminisce

the shadows held in our souls so still

a poet's poem fades in silhouette

our hearts will not forget your poet's skill

as your kind replies can trace when we met

your heart was exposed by the written word

you will be remembered, your poems heard

Frederic, you honor the memory of Connie so beautifully, written in her beloved sonnet form. She was so talented, giving, and humble; I think she would be pleasantly surprised by the tributes being written for her and the impact her life made on so many. Thank you for writing and sharing ~ John

Frederic, my dear friend, dear poet, my emotions are deeply stirred by the sincere splendor of your heart’s golden pen. Connie touched us all in such a profound way.. the beauty of your poem reflects your appreciation for our beloved friend and gifted poetess, Connie, with the shining elegance of “sunset beaches” and the “stars aloft”. Oh, how she loved Nature, her family and her friends here at poetry soup. Thank you for sharing your poignant heart-song.. Warmest wishes and hugs to you, my inspiring friend.. ~Susan
