Happy Birthday Kezia

Post by Tom on Fri Jan 10, 2014 6:10 pm

Birthday presents


Days of birth and nights of death
And all that flows between a breath,
A space where Sorrow spreads his bed,
Where hand in hand his Love is led.


Awake, my Love, I bid you rise,
Behold the glory of the skies,
Beyond the twisted web of ways
You wandered, past the ordered days;
Behind the languid stream of time,
Before you soars the sea, sublime.
Where once you limped in shadows lame,
Run back with Me from whence you came.



Beneath this dome of blue You show
Your gift to me for now I know
Someday I too will see my home.
My gift to you: a simple poem.

Lovely. Feeling wholesome. Some beautiful images. Reminds me of Marvell and Dunne, but with more emotion Smile

On your birthday my sister, I think of you, and now that you are far I wish to give you a gift, but I can not.
How is it that in life I felt not this yearning, the need to draw closer in mind and heart?  How many days and years passed by without a single thought of you crossing into my plane of awareness?  How is it that never before have I stood transfixed beneath the shining presence of your humanity?  Now am I able to see it and I am become a still lake on which a single star shines, illuminating the heart of its darkness.
How many birthdays will pass me by in my blindness, in which I will fail to realise the wonders hidden in those around me?  How many stars will rise unseen above my clouded brow?  Too many by far.
Shine over us bright star.  In your light we see the simplicity of goodness, the beauty of truth.  On your birthday you bear us the greatest of gifts, the guidance of glory, of love.  For those who turn their eyes toward heaven, shall walk in the paths of the sun.

had to look up " maudlin", what a great word, very apt, wonder if the name Maud has anything to do with it. Also feeling a bit, maudlin.

I wonder. I just read 'Maud' recently. Now that is maudlin indeed.

Yes indeed, as for the admin. Encouraging people on this end to get there asses in gear, so far mom, Rima and Pearla have registered. Although Rima does not seem too keen to write poetry, but I told her you can write whatever the hell you want - and (not sure what you think  though? ) I think its nice to share excerpts from other authors if they have said what you want to better than you can.

Totally. Anything goes, including pictures, photos, music, general conversation and random bullshit.
