TEARS OF FORSAKEN CLOSENESS
by Teppo Grén
I adore your elegance and beauty
which sets alight my life's passion with hope.
Comply with these feelings, my yearning heart's
bewitched by burning arrows of my love.
Pursue, I will my desire to hold you.
Affection’s zealous promise of amour
renews, unchains, releases my self doubt,
reflection, and shadows of past shyness.
My bashful silence is shed; hope is found,
unknown feelings rise which I must convey
by words of verse. I‘m cast off in pain and
alone, a fragile heart of kindness weeps.
Years of yearning to find true love ends in
tears shed, fanciful musing forsaken.
by Danetta Barney
A ll he knew was the moonlight shined brightly
L eading him into the woods all alone.
Z ipping his blue jacket he wore nightly,
H e carried his cane, with each step he groaned.
E ver so slowly he wandered away;
I n his heart was a song from his childhood.
M emories and laughter would soon decay
E ager he rushed to the thick of the woods.
R ainfall muddied the old shoes on his feet,
S topped him cold at first, he turned to look back.
I mprisoned in his mind, he took a seat,
G rabbed his chest hearing a thundery crack.
N ow his loved ones discover him at last
S howing him the way home, no question asked.
God And Nature Are Foundations In Each Soul
by Robert Lindley
God and Nature give me such sweet release,
as both seep quite deeply into my soul.
Joined in this melding we race on carefree
and we in our wisdom dance two by two.
My life now consists of love of we two,
holding the joys in being so carefree.
Days and nights bring on our hottest release,
together build stronger each longing soul.
Nature and God live in a seeking soul,
creating scenarios for release.
Bathed in true light, they create sets of two,
with beloved brought pairs that are carefree.
God and Nature are TWO foundations in each soul.
the quest NOT CAREFREE CAN be a release.
Example #6 SHADOW SONNET
Spirit to Spirit
by Amera M. Andersen originator of the form. M. Andersen
So many things have turned my spirit so.
Yet I do resist and yield to it yet.
Know that I give my strength for you to know.
Forget you? Nay, I shall never forget.
Left with my sandpaper dreams since you left.
Love lies in my spirit, for you my love.
Theft of your presence is not spirit theft.
Above all my dreams, I hold you above.
You now have returned, I knew it was you.
Waiting so long as my heart was waiting;
few have returned, yet you're one of the few.
Aching for you as my soul was aching.
War takes so many; yet, you've beaten war.
Door of my spirit, come enter my door.
I am sure they would like to hear any questions or suggestions you might like to offer.
Light & Love Debbie
