AW> I know all you are probably getting tired of having to read
AW> my poems...but I will put them in anyway!
Now, don't start getting sensitive. Post them, that is why we are all here, we want to read them.
I am like Debbie [Silas], I am moved to write, but not often do I write unless I am inwardly compelled.
So, if you are the one writing, more power to you.
AW> rain will come another day
AW> light and water will start to play
AW> and make a sight that's made for two
AW> a rainbow I can share with you
I liked the stanza above the most.
A rainbow shyly opens its fan of
Appearing, suddenly in a cloudy sky,
A spectrum of colors, up there parades,
Causing a stir within each passerby.
When April shared her words of
Caused a spark in my creativity,
God's own necklace in summer's rays,
Penned this reply as is my proclivity.
Not from her work, to cause a
Simply to share my answering rhyme,
The words demand their own satisfaction,
Seeking also, into the ether to climb.
From the depths of my breast, a
heart is beating,
Off to the mailman my poem, in a flash,
April's words, I avoid repeating,
Hurried images, in a frenzied dash.
I end this tribute to summer days,
The magic of light and a shining orb's rays,
I changed the pattern at the end,
Now, have to stop, this poem to send.
